Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-02-19 02:46:31 EST
Other than the gratuitous shebang line change, the rest of the
patch appears to be fairly sane/safe.  I'll review it against
the current sources soon, and probably apply it.

Thanks Than

Hm, right now I see two different copies of Xsession -
/etc/X11/xdm/Xsession and /etc/kde/kdm/Xsession and the difference
between the two is exactly that the kdm one appears to have the
attached patch applied (including the "gratuitous shebang line change"
;-) ).
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-30 01:22:04 EST
A slightly modified version of the attached patch has been applied
to CVS and will be in xinitrc-3.38-1 in rawhide soon.
Comment 5 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-30 03:00:59 EST
New packages built in dist-fc2-hold, pending unlocking of dist-fc2,
so packages can be moved over and sync'd with rawhide.

Thanks also Aleksey for the reminder!
Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 2004-03-30 14:54:59 EST
Please do not forget to remove the outdated duplicate
/etc/kde/kdm/Xsession from kdebase now.
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2004-03-30 18:01:54 EST
Thanks Aleksey, I've filed bug #119503 to track the removal of
the kdebase Xsession script.
