Description Peter Bowen 2001-08-23 16:53:24 UTC
There are numerous directories missing out of the default config file for
xfs.  The attached patch adds back the directories that have been in
previous versions, and should fix the font problems people have been
complaining about.

This defect is considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax.

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-31 20:44:58 UTC
Was this a fresh install or an upgrade?

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2001-09-02 05:19:00 UTC
Fixed in 4.1.0-1.2 in rawhide.  Don't know if it will be in final release or
not.  Might have to wait until erratum.

Comment 5 Peter Bowen 2001-09-02 17:24:19 UTC
This looks like it was it was mostly fixed in 4.1.0-1, which was in RC2, and
presumably will be in the final release.

As to upgrade vs. full install, they both behave the same because the line in
the specfile is:
%config %verify(not md5 size mtime) /etc/X11/fs/config

Without the noreplace option, the config file from the new/upgraded package will
_always_ replace the existing one, saving the old one as .rpmsave if necessary.
