    Accidentally deleted /usr/bin/x11

    I need to know where the /usr/bin/X11 link goes to. If someone can post the ls of that directory that would be just as helpful. It is currently referring to /usr/bin/ which means its a recursive link and I do not think that is correct. A speedy response would be nice
    I wish to have this resolved before I need to reboot.

    Mine points to . as well. I assume it's intentional.

    I restored it manually from /root/local/Trash (or something like that) but I wasn't confidant it the link stayed intact (although it should have) Thank you for confirming its recursive by nature. I too can confirm that its recursive since it still pointed back to /usr/bin/ and if I had made any changes they appear to have been undone since I assume if I had not fixed them my system would not boot.
