Description Ville Skyttä 2005-11-21 17:15:27 EST
Now that /usr/X11R6/bin is gone, I think it's safe to remove it from the   
default $PATH too, patch attached.  I'm not a csh user/hacker, so that part  
could use a review.

Remove /usr/X11R6/bin from default $PATH
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-11-21 17:17:02 EST
This would actually require patching login, ssh, and various other utilities as
Comment 3 Phil Knirsch 2006-01-24 14:56:50 EST
Why? Login doesn't set /usr/X11R6/bin in the default PATH environment variable,
nor should it. Same for ssh.

There shouldn't be any application in /usr/X11R6/bin anymore. Just checked
current devel install and no files there.

And if 3rd party applications require /usr/X11R6/bin to be in the PATH variable
then this needs to be handled by those 3rd party apps imho.

Also we're already changing all paths for all other parts of the modular X
change, so this would just be one of the finishing touches imho.

Read ya, Phil

Fix will be in next Rawhide package as no more files are found under /usr/X11R6
in our current development tree.

Read ya, Phil
