Description Ike To 2006-11-01 09:41:07 UTC
Description of problem:

Bitmap fonts in the fonts-chinese package is not generated correctly.  The pcf
files it installed just include empty gzipped files.  Perhaps bdftopcf is not
installed in the system when they are compiled.  Perhaps we have a missing build

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install fonts-chinese.
2. ls -l /usr/share/fonts/chinese/misc/
3. zcat ls -l /usr/share/fonts/chinese/misc/taipei16.pcf.gz
Actual results:
The ls command shows the file size is just 20 bytes.
The zcat command doesn't produce anything.

Expected results:
The ls command shows a file a few hundred kilobytes in size, and the zcat
command would give a binary file.

Additional info:
Recompiling the package using rpmbuild -ba without doing anything else will
correct the problem, as long as bdftopcf is installed already.

Comment 1 Wei-Lun Chao 2006-11-11 03:47:08 UTC
fonts.alias is also not correct.

Comment 2 Caius Chance 2007-01-15 00:57:51 UTC
It has been proved fixed in rawhide (fonts-chinese-3.03-1.fc7.noarch.rpm).
