Description klinfield 1999-09-13 17:19:38 UTC
We connect to our Red Hat 6.0 machine using
X -query NAME
from the command prompt.  Everything worked great upon the
default installation from CD-ROM, but after updating to
XFree86 3.3.5 (from the errata page Sept 7th fix) we can no
longer use
X -query NAME.
We had to uninstall the entire XFree86 package and reinstall
the version on the Red Hat 6.0 CD-ROM (3.3.1?)

Yes, xdm is running on the machine :-)

I run into the same problem with users connecting using XDMCP.  I'd
like to see more testing in this area since stock 6.0 didn't work
either due to GDM problems.

regarding the version numbers: xdm from XFree86-3.3.3 did not have
that bug

Same problem here with 3.3.5-1.6.0, but not 3.3.5-0.6.0.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-09-24 23:41:59 UTC
we disabled xdmcp connections by default in the update because of a
bugtraq announcement and a general effort to clean up security stuff.
Please edit /etc/X11/xdm/Xaccess and uncomment the line with a "*" in
it to enable connections.
