Description Danesh Mondegarian 2011-07-13 14:56:44 UTC
Description of problem:

The package xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 seems to be missing on rhel5 when installed with the minimal installation setting.

This font seems crucial to rending the font for most java applications.

Exhibit a : https://issues.jboss.org/secure/attachment/12344881/Screenshot-1.png

That is an example of what the user see's if that package is missing.

Best solution would be to make this a dependency of sorts for openjdk.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2011-07-14 14:16:09 UTC
Please file dependency bugs against the component themselves, not anaconda.  anaconda doesn't have any specific information of what package depends on which.  Do you have any idea which bugzilla product the openjdk component is a part of so this can be reassigned correctly?

Comment 2 Deepak Bhole 2011-07-14 14:30:40 UTC
Re-assigning to proper component and owner.

Comment 3 jiri vanek 2011-07-15 06:29:51 UTC
It is funny that when testing i s included then BuildRequires alredy force xorg-x11-fonts-Type1. I think that it will be no harm to add  Requires xorg-x11-fonts-Type1 for all fedoras and rhels. Thank you for reporting such rarely occurred bug.

Comment 4 Danesh Mondegarian 2011-11-01 14:29:02 UTC
Any status update ?

Comment 5 jiri vanek 2012-01-27 18:42:16 UTC
fixed in fedora for now.

Comment 6 Alex Szczuczko 2012-10-02 14:22:07 UTC
Has the fix made it into RHEL 5? Thanks.

Adding link to source JBoss JIRA issue.

Comment 7 jiri vanek 2012-10-15 09:27:57 UTC
This was never propagated to RHELs. 
As it in fedora for some time, it should be safe to add but it will need properly acked bugs.

Comment 15 jiri vanek 2013-03-25 17:13:03 UTC
Builds with fix of this were pushed to fedora.
if they will pass theirs usual QA, I'm for inclusion into next CPU for Rhel and for jdks 6
