Comment 3 Rajeesh 2007-11-13 10:16:30 UTC
Replacing pango-indic-fc.so in '/usr/lib/pango/1.6.0/modules' directory in
Fedora 8 from the same file from '/usr/lib/pango/1.5.0/modules' directory
(pango-1.14.9) from RHEL5.1 solves the problem to some extent. It causes to
render Malayalam at least as good as in RHEL5.
