Advisory: RHBA-2011:1617-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-12-06
Last updated on: 2011-12-06

Details

Updated xorg-x11-server-utils packages that fix multiple bugs and add various
enhancements are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The xorg-x11-server-utils package contains a collection of utilities used to
modify and query the runtime configuration of the X.Org server. X.Org is an open
source implementation of the X Window System.

The xorg-x11-server-utils packages have been upgraded to upstream version 7.1
which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the previous version.
(BZ#713862)

This update also fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the xrandr options --scale and -- transform caused a segmentation
fault, because these options required an --output field but the utility didn't
validate the command line properly check for existing output. With this update,
xrandr displays a message informing that the --scale and -- transform options
also require the --output option. (BZ#657554)

* Previously, xrandr wrongly assumed that a gamma ramp value of zero was a
failure. When VNC was enabled, xrandr returned a zero value. With this update,
xrandr is modified to allow for a gamma ramp value of zero. Now xrandr no longer
fails when running VNC. (BZ#740146)

All users of xorg-x11-server-utils are advised to upgrade to these updated
packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
