Description of problem:
When I have rxvt-2.7.5-15 installed, it uses a 7x14 font (as specified in
my .Xdefaults with the line *font:7x14). When I install
rxvt-2.7.6-4.i386.rpm, it uses a larger font (8x16, perhaps?).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install rxvt-2.7.6-4
2. type "rxvt" at a command line.
3. Notice the large font that won't let me fit 160 columns on a screen
Actual Results: rxvt popped up, with a big font.
Expected Results: rxvt should have popped up with a 7x14 font, as
specified in my .Xdefaults file with the line *font:7x14
rxvt does not read .Xdefaults and X read .Xresources. Can you retry with
setting it in .Xresources and manually check rxvt -fn 7x14 if you have the
you may try rxvt-2.7.8-1
2.7.8-1 seems to work fine, thanks.
