Can someone enlighten me as to what the double-dashes (--) serve in the shell script statement below?
/usr/X11R6/bin/xinit /bin/UpdateUI $CDVERSION $PARAM -- /usr/X11R6/bin/X -config /etc/X11/intel/xorg.conf
Also, when the command above is run, I receive a warning message (or two). Would it be ok for me to append to the end of the statement a '2> /dev/null', or will this affect the output of the X11 server?
I do not run the shell script containing the line above from the command line, but from the init of a Linux distro I burn to CD-R. Thus it makes it difficult to test. I hope this makes sense.
