Description of problem:
Tried to use preugrade on a server-like machine (basically no x-related packages installed). preupgrade prints a couple of warnings on the console and text in the UI is completely unusable.
Installing a couple of additional packages fixed the problem.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a minimal Fedora install (no X windows)
2. yum install preupgrade
1. warnings on the console
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "pk-gtk-module": libpk-gtk-module.so: Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module": libcanberra-gtk-module.so: Kann die Shared-Object-Datei nicht öffnen: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/preupgrade/guihelpers/__init__.py:33: PangoWarning: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='latin'
gtk.glade.XML.__init__(self, filename, rootname)
Geladene Plugins: blacklist, fastestmirror, whiteout
Kein Plugin für Argument: rpm-warm-cache
Kein Plugin für Argument: remove-with-leaves
Kein Plugin für Argument: auto-update-debuginfo
(preupgrade-gtk.py:2639): PkGtkModule-DEBUG: InstallFontconfigResources method invoked
2. text in UI window is unusable
preupgrade should show readable glyphs and work as if this had been a default Fedora installation.
I got rid of the "Gtk-Message"s by installing PackageKit-gtk-module and libcanberra-gtk2.
For good glyphs, I installed dejavu-sans-fonts.
Finally I installed yum-plugin-remove-with-leaves, yum-plugin-rpm-warm-cache and yum-plugin-auto-update-debug-info to get rid of the last plugin warnings.
I'm not sure how to depend on 'just a latin1 font', which is why I'm not sending a spec file patch but I expected a usable preupgrade after installing it...
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '12'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
