Description Kenneth Topp 2000-08-20 23:08:16 UTC
noticed this:
strace fslsfonts -s unix/:-1 2>&1 | grep tmp
connect(3, {sin_family=AF_UNIX, path="/tmp/.font-unix/fs-1"}, 22) = 0

but the doorway that xfs creates by default is /tmp/.font-unix/fs7100

xfs will create the expected doorway file ( .../fs-1) when I added "-port
-1" at the right point of /etc/init.d/xfs.  adding that to
/etc/X11/fs/config was worthless.

couple issues: 
1) having 'unix/:-1' and no doorway hangs X (prevents X from loading or
xset fp+ unix/:1 freezes X right away).
2) no way to set xfs up correctly with out hacks.

I have no idea how this slipped by you guys, so i figure it may be a local
thing.  let me know what details you want.

Comment 1 Kenneth Topp 2000-10-03 12:59:29 UTC
This bug is bogus, I misread xfs (1x) and thought that droppriv implied port -1,
which it doesn't.

I'm gonna attempt to close this bug now.
