Last updated on: 2011-04-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)

Details

Updated xorg-x11-xfs packages that resolve an issue are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The X.Org X11 xfs font server provides a standard mechanism for an X server to
communicate with a font renderer.

These updated xorg-x11-xfs packages fix the following bug:

* Prior to this update, the X Window System font server (xfs) could have
terminated with a segmentation fault on 64-bit platforms if the client-limit was
set to values greater than 100. With this update, the underlying code has been
changed and xfs remains stable regardless of the set client limit. (BZ#685065)

All users of xorg-x11-xfs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which resolve this issue.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released errata

This update is available via Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat
