Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-08-08 03:20:30 UTC
While installing a new system the followin error shows up on a console 1:

error opening security policy file

This file indeed does not exist as 'xserver' above is not a directory
but an absolute link to /etc/X11/xserver (most other links in
'.....lib/X11/' are relative, although not all).

Maybe severity here is really "low", as things are getting installed,
but I am not sure what requested that file and how it was affected.

This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2000-08-08 19:04:28 UTC
This has been around since 6.1 beta (lorax) days... I can't find the bug that
was filed then no matter what fun ways I try to query bugzilla for it, but I
remember discussions of it.  The resolution was something along the lines of "we
don't put all of X in the instimage to cut down on the space, this is one of the
things that gets left out" and that since it doesn't hurt anything to mark it
not a bug.  Also resolved as NOTABUG in bug 13685.
