In chapter 3. Installing Debian the right way on page 101:

Item 3 in section 3.3.4 states: "If the file [.xsession] is present, ./.Xsession is tried."
This should be: "If the file [.xsession] is not present, ./.Xsession is tried."

Discussion

The .Xsession file is an alternative to .xsession, but considered only when the latter is not present.

Feedback

Andreas Bohle (Linux Magazin 08/2005, p. V): The book is for beginners with an interest in the technical aspects, just as much as it is for seasoned Debian users: not everyone is familiar with the diversity of configuration mechanisms and tools of the free distribution. Notwithstanding its distinctly theoretical approach, this tome excels with a substantial quantity of practical examples which illustrate the coherences [of the distribution] further.
