Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63256
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:54 EDT
Version 4.2.0-6.62. Noticed two font issues/problems
1. In the Speedo directory an empty fonts.dir.rpmnew is created.
2. Somehow the rpm still thinks it is touching the local/fonts.dir file.
I have local rpms that put fonts.dir into that directory and installing
XFree86 rpms show a conflict for that file and need to be forced.
I've fixed the first glitch in 4.2.0-6.666.
For the second one however, the font directories are owned by the XFree86
packaging, and the auxilliary fonts.dir and similar files are also owned
by XFree86 packaging despite the fact XFree86 does not itself place files
into these directories. fonts.dir should _never_ be supplied as a static
file in any package, doing so is a bug. fonts.dir is a file created post
install by mkfontdir.
Your local RPM's should use mkfontdir in their %post script similar to how
our font packages do. The fonts.dir file should not be owned by your
