Description plante+rh 1999-05-24 14:39:22 EDT
The Xnest nested X server dumps core. This is the case with
the lab's RH5.2 machine and for my own 6.0 machine. On my
machine Xnest is in XFree86-Xnest-

OOPS I hadn't noticed that it doesn't dump core when the actual server
in which Xnest is running is another XFree86 server. It dumps core
with the display being an SGI Indigo running the X server from Irix
Comment 2 David Lawrence 1999-05-24 18:59:59 EDT
I was unable to get Xnest to dump core when running it withing another
running XFree86 session on a local machine. We do not have an Indigo
machine to test this on so you may get a faster responce by posting a
request to one of the usenet newsgroups such as comp.os.linux.x.
