Description p929001 1999-08-09 12:03:28 UTC
I know this bug has been reported before (bugs 2386, 2495,
2651, 2711, 2740, 2753, 2795, 2887, 3062, 3063, 3110, 3131,
3222, 3240, 3490, 3522, 3585), but the suggested bugfix
('chkfontpath --add /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi;
/etc/rc.d/init.d/xfs restart') does not work. 75dpi is
already in my font path; 'chkconfig --list' gives

Current directories in font path:
1: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled
2: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled
3: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled
4: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc
5: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1
6: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Speedo
7: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
8: /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi

I am using netscape from the RPMs
netscape-common-4.61-4.i386.rpm and
netscape-navigator-4.61-4.i386.rpm, both from Libc6 Contribs
for i386. I am running Redhat 6.0 with the KDE window
manager. I tried to make 75dpi the last item in the list, as
suggested in one of the bug entries (although I can't see
why that should help), but it did not work.

works fine here with the 4.61 that's in Raw Hide.

Hi.  See my Bugzilla bug report 4471 for a problem I found with the
cyrillic font package on machines running 6.0 upgraded from 5.2.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-08-18 19:51:59 UTC
netscape continues to have intermittent, unreproducible problems with
java on some sites.  Unfortunately, we can't duplicate this one.
