chris z Posted December 19, 2003 Report Share Posted December 19, 2003 (edited) NOTE: the following issue only seems to affect MDK9.1. if you are using a version of MDK other than 9.1, you should be okay with the XFree86 security update, AFAIK. i just ran MDK update. it said there were 2 XFree86 security related upgrades. xfree86-4.3-8.4.91mdk xfree86-devel-4.3-8.4.91mdk i did the xfree86 first. it told me before it could install, it needed to remove xfree86-server. i thought that's weird, but maybe a new version is part of the package. WRONG!!!! i then tried to install the devel package, but it told me i was missing xfree86=libs-4.3-8.4.91 & that it couldn't install. so i searched via urpmi for the libs, but they weren't found anywhere. went to rpmfind, they didn't have them. went to the xfree86 web site. couldn't find them there, either! so i cancelled the install of that. i rebooted to see what might happen. well, you can prolly guess what happened. no xfree86 server, no startx!!! i had to urpmi from terminal, uninstall the "upgrade" for xfree86, then install the older version from cd1 & the server along with it. has anybody else tried this update? if so, did you have the same poblems? if you didn't try this, anybody wanna try & verify that this wasn't just some weirdness on my end? let me know, please........
