Description George Beshers 2008-02-21 14:53:54 EST
Description of problem:
  On altix4 and altix5 2/20 nightly I get:
  [root@altix4 ~]# system-config-kdump
  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

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
  This is the 2/20 nightly.

How reproducible:
  Two different altix systems -- did not try x86_64.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  yum install system-config-kdump
2.  system-config-kdump
Actual results:

Expected results:

The magic package needed appears to be bitmap-fonts

It also works if you install urw-fonts instead of bitmap-fonts
Comment 5 Denise Dumas 2008-02-29 13:29:41 EST
At David Mair's request, and because we will update s-c-k for 314341 anyway,
we'd also like to add this one at the same time.

Looks good on the qa_ack side.
