Description of problem:
Always crashes upon starting up gdm when upgraded from redhat-9 with
GNOME Japanese Environment.
Dec 3 18:18:41 hostname gdm: gdm_slave_xioerror_handler: Fatal
X error - Restarting :0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1
Always, unless you have changed font settings of redhat-9 GNOME.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core1 with upgrading options over redhat-9 GNOME JP.
Gdm tries to display menu but repeatedly fails.
Delete /usr/share/fonts/ja/TrueType/fonts.cache-1 .
Since default fonts for Japanese desktop (Kochi fonts) are
obsoleted and not included in the installation. you should delte
their cache. It works.
running fc-cache didn't help you, right? basically scriptlet do run
fc-cache. and old fonts.cache-1 should be updated. not deleting old
fonts.cache-1 isn't actual problem. fonts.cache-1 kept to have the old
entries somehow. it's actual problem I suspect.
