Description Jan ONDREJ 2007-12-28 16:34:48 UTC
Description of problem:
Fedora 8 rrdtool does not work without fonts. I have servers without graphical
console, so fonts are not installed. rrdtool does not work without fonts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. uninstall all fonts
2. try to generate rrd-graphs
Actual results:
No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

Expected results:
nothing, created image

Additional info:
I am using "dejavu-fonts" for RRD and it's working, but my images displays last
line wrongly (moved right outside of image). Is there a better font or is it a
bug of rrdtool? See differences on:

  F8: http://central.lf.upjs.sk/sagator/day-count.png

Please, include a font in Requires section?

Comment 1 Martin Poole 2007-12-30 15:20:53 UTC
The rrd font was removed upstream in change

        * libraries, src/DejaVuSansMono-Roman.ttf, src/VeraMono.ttf: remove
          some things we do not need anymore in 1.3

Simply installing dejavu-lgc-fonts should restore previous functionality.

Comment 2 Jan ONDREJ 2007-12-30 15:27:05 UTC
I know, just add please this to Requires in spec file.

To my problem, just first image in incorrectly rendered, others are ok.

Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2008-01-02 16:03:31 UTC
Done. Fixed in rawhide, will push for f8 soon as well.
