up2date fails to start because of font problem
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:58:44 EDT
Description of problem:
up2date fails to start. (It seems to open briefly and then close immediately.)
I've posted this as a comment to another bug, but I don't think that it was
actually related to that bug.
The traceback tells me that it's looking for a font I don't have installed.
It's a trivial problem to fix -- I'll attach a patch to gui.py as my next comment.

Patch to gui.py
Here's a trivial patch to gui.py that resolves the issue.
hmm, but I'm curious why that font isnt installed... It
supposed to be one of the defaults.
But either way, I not sure that section of code is even
needed. Just makes a couple labels bold for no obivous
reason. Might just remove it entirely.
Still happens with the most recent rawhide, BTW. If it's a simple patch, you
might want to see if you can check it in before the freeze.
hmm, yeah. forgot to commit it. should land in 4.1.19
