Nethack font warning
Last modified: 2016-09-19 22:37:32 EDT
Description of problem:
When the X11 version of nethack is started, it complains
Warning: Cannot convert string "nh10" to type FontStruct
This means that X cannot locate the nh10.pcf file, which is in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a ~/.nethackrc file containing the string "OPTIONS=windowtype:x11"
2. Start nethack
The font warning described above is issued.
The font should be found.
This bug is still present in F-8. If you'll make the RPM put a symbolic link,
named nethack-fonts perhaps, in /etc/X11/fontpath.d and pointing to
/usr/games/nethack-3.4.3/fonts, then this bug goes away.
Tagged and built for devel. Thanks!
I'll push this as an update for F8 once I fix up the others as well.
