Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 13963
netscape 4.73's usage of chkfontpath munges /etc/X11/fs/config
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Apparently, upgrading to netscape 4.73 botches
/etc/X11/fs/config, by pre-pending
/usr/X11R6/X11/fonts/75dpi to the fonts catalogue.
That would normally be well and good, but it is
missing a comma, so my config reads:
catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
and fails to load the windows TTFs. Please tell
netscape rpm to get out of my xfs.
Netscape simply runs chkfontpath, it doesn't edit it directly.
Reassigned to chkfontpath.
your /etc/X11/fs/config file must have been in an 'unusual' state before
chkfontpath ran, as we have had no other bugreports of this nature. Can you
please attach your /etc/X11/fs/config to this report?
Here is my /etc/X11/fs/config:
# Default font server configuration file for Red Hat Linux 6.0
# allow a max of 4 clients to connect to this font server
client-limit = 4
# when a font server reaches its limit, start up a new one
clone-self = off
# alternate font servers for clients to use
#alternate-servers = foo:7101,bar:7102
# where to look for fonts
# Some of these are commented out, i.e. the TrueType and Type1
# directories in /usr/share, because they aren't forced to be
# installed alongside X.
