Description dunwoody 2001-01-05 21:55:46 UTC
There must be a simple explanation to this problem, but I haven't had time
to investigate.  Perhaps
it is a simple pilot error, and not a bug at all.  Nevertheless, here goes:

My Rawhide 20001222 systems, including  gnome-print-0.20-8.i386.rpm, have
no problem running
the following command, which is included in the postinstall script of

/usr/bin/gnome-font-install --system --scan --no-copy \
        --afm-path=/usr/share/fonts/afms \
        --pfb-path=/usr/share/fonts/pfbs \
	--pfb-assignment=ghostscript,/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts \
	--afm-assignment=ghostscript,/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts \
        --pfb-assignment=ghostscript,/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1 \
	--afm-assignment=ghostscript,/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1 \

Running the same program on my Rawhide 20010103 systems, with either
gnome-print-0.25-1.i386.rpm or gnome-print-0.20-8.i386.rpm installed, seems
to yield
an infinite loop, or at least a command execution that soaks the CPU for
longer than I am willing
to wait.

These systems all have 352 RPMs installed, almost all from Rawhide.  If
further details would help,
I'd be happy to provide them.  These systems have no
/usr/share/ghostscript/fonts directories, and
they have 771 files under /usr/share/fonts.

Comment 1 Owen Taylor 2001-07-21 22:25:14 UTC
gnome-print-install was considerably rewritten in gnome-print-0.29,
so I'm guessing this probably is fixed now. gnome-print-0.29-2 should
show up in rawhide sometime soon, and if it still happens with
that, please reopen.
