Description Ralf Corsepius 2010-12-21 12:15:36 UTC
Description of problem:

xorg-x11-fonts-update-dirs is not silent. It contains pushd+popd calls which echo directories to stdout.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login as root
2. cd ~
3. run 
xorg-x11-fonts-update-dirs --skip-fontscale /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc
Actual results:

# xorg-x11-fonts-update-dirs --skip-fontscale /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc
/usr/share/X11/fonts/encodings ~

Expected results:
Silence/No output

Additional info:
- As xorg-x11-fonts-update-dirs is used in rpm scriptlets, this issue causes rpm-installation of font-packages to be non-silent - This violates the FPG.
- There are 2 ways to silence pushd/popd.
pushd -n <dir> and pushd <dir> >/dev/null.
The latter is better portable, because not all shells' pushd/popd implementations support "-n" (e.g. zsh's doesn't).

I think the patch is completely trivial. What do you think?

damn! Wrong tab. It should go to bug 664699 of course.
