Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2006-06-14 04:09:55 UTC
ttmkfdir is not part of xorg-x11.

Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-10-04 15:20:11 UTC
Move to ttmkfdir.

Comment 3 Liang Zhang 2006-10-09 01:52:34 UTC
It seems to be same as bug204893.

Comment 4 Liang Zhang 2006-10-09 01:54:30 UTC
I found the reason which creates this bug is relative to encodings.dir of X11.
The encodings.dir of FC-5 (/usr/share/X11/fonts/encodings/encodings.dir) doesn't
include the encodings in the "large" sub-dir, so encodings.dir doesn't include
the CJK encodings. Then ttmkfdir can not find the CJK encodings through scaning
encodings.dir, therefore, there are not CJK encodings in the fonts.dir which is
created by ttmkfdir.
The encodings.dir of RHEL-4 (/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/encodings.dir)
includes the encodings in the "large" sub-dir, so there are CJK encodings in the
So I think this bug is not a bug of ttmkfdir, but a bug of encodings.dir of X11.
encodings.dir of FC-5 must include the encodings in the "large" sub-dir.
I need some information which the maintainer of X11 gives me about encodings.dir
of X11.
