Description Peter Gordon 2006-06-29 05:32:32 UTC
Description of problem:
A normal upgrade of xfs deletes the config file in /etc/X11/fs. xfs doesn't
start, the Xserver doesn't start.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum -y update
This reinstalls xfs.
In the directory /etc/X11/fs there are two files, config.rpmnew and
config.rpmsave. But there is no config file, so xfs fails to start and then the
X server fails to start.
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
Copying the file config.rpmnew to config seems to fix the problem
This is the relevant log from yum.

Comment 1 Matěj Cepl 2007-07-03 13:50:04 UTC
Fedora Core 5 is no longer supported, please, could you reproduce this bug with
the updated version of the currently supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or
Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue turns out to still be reproducible, please
let us know in this bug report.  If after a month's time we have not heard back
from you, we will have to close this bug as CANTFIX/INSUFFICIENT_DATA.

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
