xinit - X server initialisation tool

The xinit program is used to start the X Window System server and a first client program on systems that are not using a display manager such as xdm or in environments that use multiple window systems. When this first client exits, xinit will kill the X server and then terminate.

OpenSUSE Leap 15.2 oss: Version 1.4.0-lp152.4.4 introduced

2020-01-07
  • xinit-nolonger-unset-dbus-session.patch
    • no longer unset DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS variable to prevent gnome-session (and probably other DEs or programs, except of Plasma) from launching a new D-Bus session, while systemd has already launched its own. Unsetting it broke user systemd services that use D-Bus (e.g. PulseAudio), because X uses another D-Bus session (boo#1108549)
