Can you please build this fix for F8 and Rawhide? Thank you.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Currently everytime when using the third party software.
Problems with third party software due invalid font names
Working third party software and no invalid font names any longer... ;-)

Oh please note, that this problem also will affect Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6,
if this patch is not applied before the branching.
Robert, could you please give more details how i can reproduce it?
which software should i install? Thanks
Ngo, it's the Pentaprise Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP2) system. But you
really don't want to try to reproduce that. The installation is only in German,
you've to be knowledged with that ERP system as well and the problem appears
there when trying to print something. The support from Pentaprise pointed us to
this cause when debugging it.
I'm very sorry, that I can't provide you more information. If you really need
to reproduce this problem, I could try to setup a demo system within a virtual
machine this evening maybe.
Robert, i will send your patch to upstreamer and ask if he could review the
the fix is included in upstream urw-fonts-1.0.7pre44.tar.bz2. I already built
it in rawhide. Thanks for the patch
Credit goes to my colleague and the helpful guys of Pentaprise GmbH. Just one
question: Can you build the next urw-fonts for Fedora 8 (and maybe Fedora 7) as
it will also be available for Fedora 7/8 in next day!
