Description Dan Horák 2006-09-06 04:26:49 EDT
Description of problem:
There is no default filesystem-based font path in current Xvfb server. Fonts are
installed in /usr/share/X11/fonts/, but Xorg needs explicit "-fp <path>" to find
the default font "fixed".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
start Xvfb without "-fp <path>"

Actual results:
mock-build> Xvfb :69 -nolisten tcp -ac -terminate
error opening security policy file /usr/lib/xserver/SecurityPolicy
Could not init font path element unix/:7100, removing from list!

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

The following startup is OK:
mock-build> Xvfb :69 -nolisten tcp -ac -terminate -fp /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc/
