Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 360861
fonts for languages installed when not selecting language support
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:20 EST
Description of problem: sazanami-fonts-gothic is composed onto install media and
installed by default despite commenting out "## @japanese-support" in
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. comment out "@japanese-support" in /usr/share/pungi/f8-fedora.ks by inserting
a hash '#' at the beginning of the line.
2. compose install media using pungi; install with defaults
3. rpm -qa | grep sazanami
No sazanami-fonts because support for Japanese was excluded explicitly.
Yes, this is intentional, we now install fonts for most languages by
default in F8 to have good language coverage.
If you really don't want Asian fonts installed from your kickstart file
you can explicitly omit them with lines like:
etc. Those are the large ones anyway.

Huh, shouldn't all font packages be named something-fonts or fonts-something?
What are these names then:

They are subpackage of sazanami-fonts, cjkunifonts, and baekmuk-ttf-fonts.
There are plenty of other older examples of subpackages in the distro:
