Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5729
Netscape 4.7 RPM chkfontpath BAD
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:10:13 EDT
Your netscape 4.7 RPM dies on just about any
Java page, the reason, you explicitly removed the font
path /usr/X11R6/lib/fonts/75dpi from the font servers
paths. Why? I have no clue, even Netscape says its a
bug and tells us to put it back in. This might not be
needed for RedHat 6.1 but definitely for 6.0.
Just change your SRPM spec file and replace the line :
/usr/sbin/chkfontpath -q -r /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
/usr/sbin/chkfontpath -q -a /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
so we can be happy.
Yikes, that is broken. Fixed packages should appear later today
at some point...

Can't print anything in Netscape print menu although all
WordPerfect files print OK.
Netscape was reinstalled in vain (ver 4.7)
The error on the printed pages states:
Error: /invalidfont in findfont
Times-Roman Font Times
This appears to be a damaged font or a damaged font finder.
Is there a workaround to fix this. I suspect that it was
introduced with a bug contained in the XFREE86 rpms, but
that's only a guess.

Run (as root):
chkfontpath --add /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi
That should solve it.
fixed in the errata 4.7-1.1 release, available now.
