Description Kalev Lember 2010-09-11 17:12:37 UTC
xvfb-run from xorg-x11-server-Xvfb-1.9.0-7.fc15.i686 package dies with the following error:
$ xvfb-run asdf
mktemp: too few X's in template `Xauthority'

It might make sense to update xvfb-run to the latest version from http://git.debian.org/?p=pkg-xorg/xserver/xorg-server.git;a=blob;f=debian/local/xvfb-run;hb=HEAD

Debian's xvfb-run also contains a fix for CVE-2009-1573 and it looks like Fedora's xvfb-run is still vulnerable.

Please test with packages from http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2464575 ... has it been fixed for you?

Comment 2 Kalev Lember 2010-09-13 16:45:07 UTC
Tested the packages. xvfb-run worked fine for me and the issue described in CVE-2009-1573 appears to be fixed as well.


Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2010-09-13 18:40:37 UTC
Updated build is http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=2464867, but yes this seems to be fixed.
