Description Frank Eisenmenger 2007-11-19 05:13:49 EST
Description of problem:

on fully installed & updated i386 & x86_64 Fedora 8 systems, I found the 
following links BROKEN in /etc/X11/fontpath.d/

xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi:unscaled:pri=30 -> 
/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled
xorg-x11-fonts-misc:unscaled:pri=10 -> /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled


This may be caused by incorrect installation scripts of

xorg-x11-fonts-misc-7.2-3.fc8
xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi-7.2-3.fc8

RPMs.


A workaround is to add:

Section "Files"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi"
    FontPath        "/usr/share/X11/fonts/100dpi/:unscaled"
EndSection

to /etc/X11/xorg.conf


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Yup, and xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi:unscaled:pri=30 as well.

???

I have reported this bug more than 3 months ago (bug 251451),
bug it was closed with NOTABUG by ajax. What happened here?
Comment 5 Kristian Høgsberg 2007-11-20 11:55:59 EST
Oh, oops.  I guess Adam closed it a little too fast, sorry about that.

Comment 7 Nicole Dai 2008-01-15 05:13:17 EST
Verified the three broken links have been fixed in xorg-x11-fonts-*-7.2-4.fc9
Comment 8 matt cowan 2008-04-16 11:58:18 EDT
so this has been fixed for months and no update released for f8!?
Comment 9 matt cowan 2008-04-16 13:07:10 EDT
and I can't even just do
  yum --enablerepo=development update xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi
or even
  yum --enablerepo=development upgrade xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi
!!!
...
Transaction Check Error:
  file /etc/X11/fontpath.d/xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi:unscaled:pri=20 from install of
xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi-7.2-6.fc9.noarch conflicts with file from package
xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi-7.2-3.fc8.noarch
...

and of course there are dependencies on these font packages, so I can't simply
rpm -e them without --nodeps, which is just asking for even more trouble.  I
even needed --noscripts to finally get rid of the 75dpi, 100dpi, and misc font
packages.  but all to no avail as yum update|upgrade|install still exit
with the same file conflict error as above!?  figures.

Either this bug should not be closed, or some other bugs need to be opened?

This is due to bug 251451 (owned by many packages)
