Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 433559
Inexact font match produces different results between i386,x86_64
Last modified: 2009-07-14 11:02:01 EDT
Description of problem:
With dejavu and bitstream fonts installed, but freefont not installed, "fc-match
freesans" (also "fc-match sans") produces a different results on i386 than on
At first I thought this caused doxygen/graphviz to generate different results on
each platform which caused the file conflicts in multiarch installs. Bug
#432683. It could have been, but in this case "sans" from dejavu and bitstream
produce identical images. Its more likely that one of the build platfoms has
freefont installed, which does produce different images.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum list 'dejavu*' 'bitstream*' 'freefont*'
2. fc-match freesans
bitstream-vera-fonts.noarch 1.10-8 installed
dejavu-fonts.noarch 2.23-1.fc9 installed
dejavu-fonts-experimental.noarch 2.23-1.fc9 installed
dejavu-lgc-fonts.noarch 2.23-1.fc9 installed
freefont.noarch 20060126-4.fc7 development
Vera.ttf: "Bitstream Vera Sans" "Roman" <<-- x86_64
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book" <<-- i386
Same font on both architectures, given same fonts installed.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
