Doc Text:
* system-config-network requires the fonts provided with xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 in order to display. However, this fonts package was not previously set as a dependency for system-config-network and it was therefore possible (for example, in the case of a minimal installation) for system-config-network to be present on a system and yet unable to function because these fonts were missing. This update sets xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 as a dependency for system-config-network to ensure that these fonts will be available and that system-config-network will display correctly.

Description Brad Hinson 2007-05-29 21:44:20 UTC
Description of problem:
system-config-network should require xorg-x11-fonts-Type1.  Otherwise, you get
the error:

No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-network-1.3.99-1.el5


How reproducible:
100%.  From a minimal install, install system-config-network.

Proposing for RHEL-5.3 FasTrack. Very simple specfile fix.

Read ya, Phil
