Description Jesus Ortega 2001-02-21 17:15:38 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.72 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.15-3SGI_39 i686; Nav)

The /var/log/messages file displays the following error message upon boot:

Feb 21 12:14:51 linear xfs: ignoring font path element
/usr/share/fonts/defaults/TrueTypex (unreadable)

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Simply boot system after installation that includes XFree86
2.  Check the /var/log/messages file for errors from xfs

The /etc/X11/fs/config file contains the following lines:

catalogue = /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,

First, there is no such TrueTypex file in that directory.  Second, the
directory should 
read "default" (singular), and not "defaults" (plural).

fixed in a newer ttfonts package.
