Advisory: RHBA-2012:1335-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A

Details

Updated xorg-x11-server packages that fix a bug are now available for Red Hat
Enterprise Linux 5.

X.Org is an open source implementation of the X Window System. It provides the
basic low-level functionality that full-fledged graphical user interfaces are
designed upon.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Previously, running multiple xterm processes generating large amounts of text
caused a memory leak in the X server. Consequently, all available system RAM
could be consumed over time. This update fixes the composite wrapper code that
was leaking certain region structures and the X server no longer leaks memory in
the described scenario. (BZ#859324)

All users of xorg-x11-server are advised to upgrade to these updated packages,
which fix this bug.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

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