Description Michal Jaegermann 2007-06-23 16:08:30 EDT
Description of problem:

The current update of xfs produces /etc/X11/fs/config.rpmnew file
in which one can find:

# where to look for fonts
catalogue = catalogue:/etc/X11/fontpath.d

The problem is that neither 'man xfs' nor anything in 
/usr/share/doc/xorg-x11-xfs-1.0.4/ documents what that may be.

A name like "/etc/X11/fontpath.d" suggests that this is possibly
a directory but nothing provides such file or directory
nor even any examples which would suggest how to replace
an old "catalogue =" with this new format.  Even if such
suggestions would exist a documentation would be more than

> Missing documentation
Right you are, but not only.  It looks like that a directory
/etc/X11/fontpath.d should exist and it should be owned by
xorg-x11-xfs package.  It is "missing small spec mods" too.
Comment 3 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-06-25 19:03:40 EDT
We need some mystery now and then.  The fontpath.d directory is created and
owned by the xorg font packages.  While the code changes are int libXfont, the
man pages for the X server and the font server is what needs updates.  We'll
pull them down when we update them.
