Description jeroen 2004-03-07 10:50:52 UTC
Version: pango-1.3.5-1

When i try to start either gdm or gnome-session, they crash with the
following output:

[jeroen@orcrist jeroen]$ gnome-session
** (gnome-session:5215): WARNING **: No builtin or dynamically loaded
were found. Pango will not work correctly. This probably means
there was an error in the creation of:
You may be able to recreate this file by running pango-querymodules.
(gnome-session:5215): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file gobject.c: line
1561 (g_object_ref): assertion `G_IS_OBJECT (object)' failed
** (gnome-session:5215): CRITICAL **: file pango-engine.c: line 68
(_pango_engine_shape_shape): assertion `PANGO_IS_FONT (font)' failed
** ERROR **: file shape.c: line 75 (pango_shape): assertion failed:
(glyphs->num_glyphs > 0)

There *is* a /etc/pango/pango.modules. (by default there isn't: it's
put in /etc/pango/ppc-redhat-linux-gnu). I've run
pango-querymodules-32 > /etc/pango/pango.modules and tried again, but
it keeps crashing.

I'm out of ideas here. My system is fully updated with the fedora ppc
development yum repository. This is a major problem for me since
practically everything with a GUI uses pango nowadays.

This is a duplicate of

Work around as documented in earlier bug report

cd /etc/pango
ln -s ppc-redhat-linux-gnu powerpc-redhat-linux-gnu

This works around it for me.

Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.

I found that restrictive permissions can cause this symptom, too.  Our site sets root's umask to 077, which breaks all kinds of things.  After I fixed the perms and this problem went away.

find /opt/freeware -perm 600 -exec chmod 644 {} \;

This was on AIX with the install of the Linux Toolbox RPMs.
