XFree86-xfs-4.1.0-0.9.0 breaks /etc/X11/fs/config
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:48 EDT
I upgraded to XFree86-xfs-4.1.0-0.9.0 and my /etc/X11/fs/config file was
modified -- many of the directories listed in my font path wre removed,
even though they exist and contain valid fonts. So many directories were
removed, in fact, that "fixed" could no longer be found so the X server
I'll attach the broken config file.
Created attachment 23827 [details]
The main thing missing is the "misc" font path, containing the font "fixed" - X
won't even start without it.
I'm looking into this. It might be a problem with rpm install scripts
Aparently the %postun scripts were hosing the xfs config. A fix is present in
4.1.0-0.9.1 release but upgrades from prior 4.1.0 releases are likely to not
work. This new package needs to be tested upgrading a stock 7.1 system with
no rawhide components installed. The upgrade shouldn't strip the paths.
Need confirmation the fix works.
