Description David D.W. Downey 1999-12-11 01:22:49 UTC
RedHat 6.1 on installation fails to load the security policy file. I
believe the dir is /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/Xserver/SecurityPolicy

It continues to fail to load it even after install is complete and any
updates are loaded.

Not true.  Here's strace output from server startup:

Comment 2 David D.W. Downey 2000-02-12 17:52:59 UTC
Uhh, it IS true. I get tickets evry couple of days about the security policy.
I'm not in the habit of entering bugs or alerts for my health.
