    hi

    when we update xorg, if we do a log out, log in, new xorg release will be used?

    What I would do is run the update, and then log out and kill the X server
    with ctrl+alt+backspace.

    If you update with zypper, you can look to see what's in use with:

    sudo zypper ps

    Logout doesn't actually terminate the X server, so after a logout, if you
    checked it, it would probably show the old files were still in use.
