Description Mike A. Harris 2004-05-07 00:29:59 UTC
In the section: "X Window System" I think we should briefly cover
a few of the more user visible changes of X.org X11.  Here's a first
stab at it, however you're better at wording things than I, so feel
free to adjust/improvise.  ;o)

Users new to the X.org X11 implementation should take note of a few
differences between it and the XFree86.org X11 implementation which
shipped in previous Red Hat OS releases.  In particular, the names
of some files have changed, including the following:

X.org X11                  XFree86 X11                Description
~~~~~~~~~                  ~~~~~~~~~~~                ~~~~~~~~~~~
Xorg                       XFree86                    - X server binary
/etc/X11/xorg.conf         /etc/X11/XF86Config        - X server
config file
/var/log/Xorg.$DISPLAY.log /var/log/Xorg.$DISPLAY.log - X server logfile

Please be sure that you're using the above files to configure or
troubleshoot your X server installation.

Mike, I know it was just an error on your part, but I thought it best
to point it out. :o)

The XFree86 X11 config file should be /var/log/XFree86.$DISPLAY.log

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2004-05-07 05:47:23 UTC
oops.  ;o)
