Description Dwayne Bailey 2009-02-13 12:32:03 EST
Description of problem:
cjkunifonts breaks fontforge operation.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum groupinstall Fonts - ensures we have a standard font install
2. fontforge - breaks
3. yum remove cjkunifonts-uming
4. fontforge - words
Actual results:
When crashing we get a message like this:
Help! Server claimed font
        -some font file name (I can't remember it)
 existed in the font list, but when I asked for it there was nothing.
 I may crash soon.
 Segmentation fault

Expected results:
fontforge works regardless of whether these fonts are installed.

Not reproducible in latest yum update:

Comment 2 Caius Chance 2009-02-16 23:13:16 EST
Hi Dwayne, is that still reproducible?
Comment 3 Dwayne Bailey 2009-02-17 00:34:33 EST
# confirmed that cjkunifonts-uming is not installed
rpm -qa | grep cjk

# confirmed fontforge works

# Install default fonts - only cjkunifonts-uming missing and installed
yum groupinstall Fonts

# Check fontforge

Still broken...

Just for clarity...

yum installed the following:

 cjkunifonts-uming     noarch     0.2.20080216.1-10.fc10      updates      10 M

And the Fontforge version was:

[heather@localhost ~]$ rpm -qa | grep fontforge
