Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 455597
Create subpackage with server sources
Last modified: 2013-04-30 19:40:23 EDT
Description of problem:
Xvnc (our VNC server) is nearly same thing as Xvfb and uses X code base. In
Fedora >= 7 we have xorg-x11-server-source subpackage which contains server
source and vnc using it for building. Maintenance of such subpackage needs zero
manpower and it helps vnc maintainer to keep source up2date with main server.
(every fix which is also for Xnest/Xvfb should be ported to vnc)
No source subpackage, vnc stuck with 1.1.1 upstream release
source subpackage, vnc will use it for building and will contain RHEL5 fixes
I will attach patch soon

> Built xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-48.47.el5
xorg-x11-server-1.1.1-48.47.el5 looks fine for me
Release note added. If any revisions are required, please set the
"requires_release_notes" flag to "?" and edit the "Release Notes" field accordingly.
All revisions will be proofread by the Engineering Content Services team.
* the source code for the X server is now provided as a separate subpackage. This allows vnc to build from this source rather than an upstream source that has not been optimized for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Making this source code available separately ensures that vnc on Red Hat Enterprise Linux takes advantage of bug fixes and enhancements specific to the operating system.
