Xorg setuid detection code is no longer necessary as this logic has been moved to scripts/xpra_Xdummy.
Additionally, if the user specifies --with-Xdummy, we shouldn't try to auto-detect Xorg settings.
Few notes about the patch:
Why run a script when it isn't needed?
Some platforms (like Debian) always ship with an Xorg we can use directly, without needing any scripts. I don't want to force them to install and use a script that does absolutely nothing useful for them.
I have applied most of the patch (and more) in r6889. But I will not apply the part that forces some distros (Debian and many future distros once Xorg becomes non-suid) to use a script they don't need.
Can I close this ticket? (will close as WONTFIX since the title is about suid detection, which will remain in place)
Not heard back, closing. Shout if I'm wrong.
