I just upgraded my laptop to Fedora Core 4 and noticed that my carefully crafted
.Xdefaults stopped working with Emacs. For some odd reason FC4 has changed the window name (?) of Emacs from
emacs-x. Changing all references in
.Xdefaults respectively will let you benefit from your modifications.
And now, all is well once again and Emacs can again be used. And remember kids: vi is not to be trusted.
