Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 721033
Openjdk font dependency
Last modified: 2014-02-21 10:59:31 EST
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.

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.
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?
Re-assigning to proper component and owner.
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.
Any status update ?
fixed in fedora for now.
Has the fix made it into RHEL 5? Thanks.
Adding link to source JBoss JIRA issue.
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.
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
