Advisory: RHBA-2011:0418-2
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2011-07-21
Last updated on: 2011-07-21
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

An updated xorg-x11-font-utils package that fixes one bug is now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System, which provides
the basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user interfaces
are designed upon. This package provides utilities required to install, convert,
and generate fonts.

This update fixes the following bug:

* The Filesystem Hierarchy Standard (FHS) specifies that if the /usr/X11R6/bin/
directory exists, /usr/bin/X11 must be a symbolic link to this directory.
Previous versions of the package did not create this symbolic link. With this
update, this error has been fixed, and /usr/bin/X11 is now created as expected.
(BZ#405891)

All users of xorg-x11-font-utils are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which fixes this bug.
