Bug Fix Advisory xorg-x11-server bug fix update

Advisory: RHBA-2013:0083-1
Type: Bug Fix Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2013-01-07
Last updated on: 2013-01-07
Affected Products: RHEL Desktop Workstation (v. 5 client)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server)
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client)

Details

Updated xorg-x11-server packages that fix multiple bugs 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 bugs:

* Previously, the RRSelectInput() function failed to perform endian conversion
correctly. Consequently, certain GTK+ 2 applications run on a little-endian
architecture but displayed on a big-endian architecture - or vice versa -
terminated unexpectedly with the "BadValue (integer parameter out of range for
operation)" error message. This problem has been fixed in this update so that
the applications now run correctly in the described scenario. (BZ#794810)

* An unexpected termination in software image transfers on 64-bit systems that
caused the X virtual framebuffer (Xvfb) to terminate unexpectedly with a
segmentation fault has been fixed. (BZ#508923)

* Previously, when the number of server clients changed from >0 clients to 0
clients, if started with neither the "-noreset" or "-terminate" flags, Xvfb
consumed more memory than expected. With this update, this bug has been fixed.
(BZ#498357)

* When using a direct XDMCP query to connect to a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
server, the X server terminated unexpectedly with the SIGBART signal. The same
problem affected Xephyr and Xnest. With this update, the bug has been fixed so
that the X server, Xephyr, and Xnest run properly after connecting to the server
with a direct XDMCP query. (BZ#822438)

* Previously, there was a memory leak occurring in the X server when running
four xterm instances with scrolling data on each of them. This bug has been
fixed in this update so that the memory leak in the X server no longer occurs.
(BZ#854634)

* Previously, there was a bug in the X server preventing users from switching a
graphical screen to a text screen. As a result, users were unable to use a
graphical screen and a text screen in the same session. With this update, the
problem has been fixed and does not occur anymore. (BZ#871754)

* When rebooting or shutting down the system, a screen with the reboot or
shutdown messages was not displayed. With this update, the bug has been fixed so
that the screen with the messages is displayed correctly when rebooting or
shutting down the system. (BZ#868353)

* When logging out of the graphical session on a system with NVIDIA or AMD
graphics cards using the DisplayPort interface, a fatal X server error occurred
and a backtrace was logged into the X server log file. With this update, logging
out on the mentioned systems works as expected and the error no longer occurs.
(BZ#865967)

* On certain HP ProLiant DL380e Gen8 Server configurations, switching to a
different virtual console, or switching to runlevel 3 from runlevel 5, or
shutting down the system from runlevel 5 did not work correctly. With this
update, the problem has been fixed and the system behaves as expected when
performing the mentioned operations. (BZ#871964)

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