Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188170
manpage of xfs shows wrong path for default config file
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:29 EST
Description of problem:
From "man xfs"
Specifies the configuration file the font server will use. If
this parameter is not specified, the
default file, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config will be used.
But in FC5 the default file is /etc/X11/fs/config
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man xfs
2. see - config
man xfs shows: default file, /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config will be used.
man xfs shows: default file, /etc/X11/fs/config will be used.
This is something that really should be done by upstream IMHO. At compile
time, the Makefiles should properly massage all paths in the manpages and
change them to what was specified via ./configure, rather than hard coding
If you file a bug report in X.Org bugzilla, it'll probably be fixed in the
next xfs release, and we can update to that. Better than rolling a distro
hack to cart around. ;)
This is now fixed upstream, when we rebase to newer xfs, we will get the fix.
Closing this bug now.
