Description Need Real Name 2001-05-03 02:55:14 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010316

/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/fonts.dir is created empty due to a
suspected bug in the post install script. The fonts.scale file is created
after the fonts.dir, hence mkfontdir doesn't have the fonts.scale file
available for input.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install ttfonts-1.0-3
2.Check the contents of /usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/fonts.dir

Actual Results:  The file is created empty after installing the rpm

Expected Results:  fonts.dir should contain a listing of the available fonts.

This was mentioned at one point on the Seawolf mailing list, however it
appears it was never reported to bugzilla.
I've created a patch to the spec file that should fix it.
