Description Alan Coopersmith 2004-05-26 06:27:48 UTC
Xorg issues the following error when started:
getconfig: file '/usr/X11/lib/X11/getconfig/xorg.cfg' has bad signature.

This is because the getconfig script thinks the signature should be:
$signature = "Xorg Foundation getconfig rules file.  Version: ";

but the default xorg.cfg has a signature line of:
Xorg Project getconfig rules file.  Version: 1.0

Changing Project to Foundation in the xorg.cfg silences this error from getconfig.
