fonts.cache-1 files not owned by any package
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:46:21 EDT
After upgrading to the current Raw Hide XFree86, I've got a bunch of files
called "fonts.cache-1" in various directories. I suspect that these are turds
that should have been removed when they were no longer needed by the install.
They're fc-cache cache files.
Then the RPM should know about them.

could you roepen and reassign to me mharris?
What we've been doing actually recently is marking the files %ghost
in the RPMS. fonts-arabic, fonts-hebrew, fonts-bengali, etc, all
have this right. So, if someone wants to file bugs agains tall
font packages that leave leftover fonts.conf-1, that would be
a useful task.
Just spotted this bug still open, and thought I'd update it with a comment
to reflect the current status of everything.
With modular X11R7, all of the modular font packages in X now own:
Owen's comment seems to indicate that similar has been done to other font
packages in the OS, so this bug is safe to close now I believe.
If anyone finds other fonts.cache-* files unowned by anything, please
file a new report about it against the individual components that own
fonts within the directory the cache files are found in, and put a
hyperlink to this bug in the new report for reference to the font package
The xorg-x11-fonts src.rpm can be used for reference on how to best
