Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 EST
Description of problem:
Updating Xorg configuration breaks config file symlink
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ln -s something xorg.conf
symlink renamed, and plain file created
Patch is attached which changes the "os.rename" to "os.copy".
The backup file is still created but config file symlink now preserved.

Patch to preserve config file symlink
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Patch already submitted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you haven't even bothered to look at the patch then why is FC4 EOL'd?
Perhaps RedHat is EOL'ing a little hastily? Why drop an OS when you haven't
even bothered looking at submitted patches that improve that OS's utilities.
And you haven't even bothered to look and see if that patch is applicable to the
latest version of that utility.
Applied, will be in system-config-display 1.0.49. Thanks!
