Please attach the following:
ls -al /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo > speedo.txt
rpm -qa | grep "xorg"

Also attach your /etc/X11/fs/config, /etc/X11/xorg.conf, X server log,
and /var/log/messages.  If there is a "fonts.dir" file in the Speedo
font directory, attach it as well.  Please attach each file as an
individual uncompressed file attachment, using the bugzilla file
attachment link below.

Comment 9 Mike A. Harris 2005-04-16 11:55:29 EDT
I've investigated the issue and discovered that starting with the
X.Org X11 6.8.0 release, Xorg no longer supports the Speedo font
type.  It was disabled by Xorg as these fonts have not been produced
in over 10 years, however they neglected to also disable installation
of the fonts, so they still get installed.

We'll be updating our font packaging to remove the fonts and fix the
xfs config to remove the directory from the fontpath.

Thanks for the report and files.
