Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 868028
Last modified: 2015-10-29 09:15:32 EDT
Description of problem: twm ignores system.twmrc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): xorg-x11-twm 1.0.3 5.1.el6 i686
Steps to Reproduce:
1. modify /etc/X11/twm/system.twmrc
2. copy to /usr/lib/X11/twm/system.twmrc
3. copy to $HOME/.twmrc
Actual results: steps 1 and 2 ignored. step 3 works.
Expected results: /etc/X11/twm/system.twmrc is packaged in rpm, man twm says /usr/lib/X11/twm/system.twmrc is default configuration, thus you'd expect either one to have some effect.
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Given the low impact and easy workaround for this bug, and that at this point in time there are no plans to do any update / bugfix builds for twm for 6.x, I'm closing this bug.
