Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-08-09 09:10:26 EDT
I upgraded to the current Rawhide, i.e., to:

XFree86-VGA16-3.3.6-40
XFree86-devel-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-75dpi-fonts-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-compat-libs-4.0.3-2
XFree86-doc-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-Xvfb-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-twm-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-xf86cfg-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-xfs-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-Mach64-3.3.6-40
XFree86-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-libs-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-100dpi-fonts-4.1.0-0.9.11
XFree86-tools-4.1.0-0.9.11

After doing so, I could not "xinit" -- the server reports that it can't
open font "fixed".  This, despite the fact that "fslsfonts -server
unix/:7100 -fn fixed" lists it just fine.  Reverting to
XFree86-xfs-4.1.0-0.9.4 made the problem go away.

I can't figure out how to debug this easily, since xfs doesn't have any
sort of debugging options as far as I can tell.  What I did do is capture
strace output from xfs when it failed in 0.9.11 and succeeded in 0.9.4. 
I'll attach them both, in case they're helpful.
