Actual Results:  Crash

Expected Results:  View page

Additional info:

I'm aware of http://www.linuxcompatible.org/print23546.html but the
problem appears to exist in Fedora Core 2. I don't know if it's an
effect of my system having been upgraded from RH9 rather than being a
fresh install.

Comment 1 H.J. Lu 2004-07-14 03:13:55 UTC
It is an installer bug. After upgrade, the installer should do
something equivalent to

# locate fonts.cache | xargs rm -f

Otherwise, applications may try to use the fonts removed during
upgrade, which are still in the fonts cache. You can do it by
hand after upgrade.

Comment 2 Stefan Llewellyn Smith 2004-07-14 10:36:50 UTC
This fixes the problem for me.

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 15:04:26 UTC
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-04-28 12:55:41 UTC
Closing, based on the Legacy comments and since changes in fontconfig's
caching should fix this problem in FC5 since at least 2.3.93-2
