Description Tony Kocurko 1999-06-17 06:57:33 EDT
At least /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients had 0644 permissions rather
than 0755, after I installed the xinitrc-2.4-1.noarch.rpm
upgrade as suggested on your 6.0 Errata page.

Otherwise, everything went in perfectly. You guys are great!

Xclients file in /etc/X11/xinitrc does not have execute
permissions.  This did not allow me to start up with
enlightement or KDE...  Just twm

chmod a+rx fixes the problem

fixed in xinitrc-2.4.1-1, which will be available shortly.

The new xinitrc version 2.4.1_noarch for the 386 Intel
platform doesn't work at all. After upgrade of the necesary
XFree86 packages errata.Trying startx at root give permision
denied /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients.

Reinstalling the old xinitrc-2_3.1_noarch.rpm correct the

My by a misconfiguration in the source of xinitrc
