xawtv is missing an xorg-x11-fonts-?? package dependency. It is possible to
install and run xawtv without the right font package, it which case xawtv says
"Oops: can't load any font" and aborts.
I'm not sure which exact rpm it needs. I installed all xorg-x11-fonts-* packages
to fix the problem.
It requires at least some bitmap fonts (normally from /usr/share/X11/fonts).
Different rpms can provide this, hence a solution could be just to add
"Requires: /usr/share/X11/fonts", although it seems not reliable.
You can try to leave only xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi -- it should satisfy.
Actually, all the font specifications for xawtv are set in
/usr/share/X11/app-defaults/Xawtv file. But I don't know whether non-bitmap is
allowable at all or not...
What font packages are installed on your system?
Run "rpm -qa \*font\*" to obtain a list...
Sorry, I've reconfigured the system and I am not using xawtv currently, so I
can't provide any additional details. This packaging glitch is not affecting me
currently, so you can close the bug if you want. Or fix it :-)
