Description rfuchs 2000-01-13 17:36:00 EST
In /etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs, x font server startup,
after installing Red Hat Linux release 6.1 (Cartman), I find a
bunch of invalid links in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11 of the form

  fs -> ../../../../etc/X11/XF86Config

The other paths may not be used but this one 'fs'
keeps my xfs from starting. No problem after link was corrected.

You should have an /etc/X11/fs directory, don't you?

On my 6.1 system, I have this link:

fs -> ../../../../etc/X11/fs/

and it correctly sees /etc/X11/fs.
