Slackware 11.0 : Slackware 11.0 x11-6.9.0 patch fix (SSA:2007-110-01)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Slackware host is missing a security update.

Description :

A new x11-6.9.0-i486-14_slack11.0.tgz patch is available for
Slackware 11.0 to fix the inadvertent inclusion of two old fontconfig
binaries. Installing the original fontconfig patch followed by the
original x11 patch would cause fc-cache and fc-list to be overwritten
by old versions, breaking fontconfig. To fix the issue, reinstall the
fontconfig patch. The x11 package has been updated so that
installation will not be order-specific for anyone fetching the
patches now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
