Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-07-11 21:01:24 EDT
When I run "umask 133;mkfontdir -e /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings -e
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/encodings/large /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi"
after installing XFree86-75dpi-fonts-4.1.0-0.8.6.i386.rpm, I see this

mkfontdir: unable to process font
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/helvBO12.pcf.gz, skipping
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-11 21:33:48 EDT
Yes, known bug.  The XFree86 team says it is a bug in the pcf font encoder
and they're working on it.  It is a harmless message though other than that
particular font wont work.  I'll update this bug report when the problem
is fixed.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-21 05:10:31 EDT
Problem temporarily worked around by disabling this corrupt font file.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2001-07-24 20:35:00 EDT
Fixed internally in 4.1.0-0.9.5.  Will appear in future rawhide release.
Comment 4 David Lawrence 2006-04-10 11:31:30 EDT
Closing due to inactivity. Please feel free to reopen this bug or refile this
bug against the latest release Fedora Core if you feel this bug is still
relevant today.

Thank you
