Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 390171
Broken links in /etc/X11/fontpath.d/
Last modified: 2008-04-16 13:47:35 EDT
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-misc:unscaled:pri=10 -> /usr/share/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled
This may be caused by incorrect installation scripts of
A workaround is to add:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Yup, and xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi:unscaled:pri=30 as well.

Fixed in 7.2-4, thanks.
I have reported this bug more than 3 months ago (bug 251451),
bug it was closed with NOTABUG by ajax. What happened here?
Oh, oops. I guess Adam closed it a little too fast, sorry about that.
*** Bug 251451 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Verified the three broken links have been fixed in xorg-x11-fonts-*-7.2-4.fc9
so this has been fixed for months and no update released for f8!?
and I can't even just do
yum --enablerepo=development update xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi
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
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)
