Description of Problem:
Install up2date-gnome without installing various font packages and
up2date fails to run due to missing fonts.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@foo rhn]# rpm -q up2date-gnome up2date rhnlib gtk+ pygtk2-libglade
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Server install, no X.
2. Install up2date-gnome and the minimum packages to get it to install.
3. run up2date with DISPLAY set to a good X server
Loads of error messages about missing fonts and null fontsets.
Could you include an attachement showing the error messages?
It seems to work okay for me here, so I'm wondering which
fonts it cant find.
If it is looking for X server side fonts, it may be an issue
with the Xserver you are using (and/or it's font config).
I guess I have similar problem. I am using X-Win on Windows XP. I try
forward up2date to my desktop and the font looks very very small.
Since up2date doesn't use any fonts that are not standard,
and I can't reproduce this, I'm putting this into
I reproduced this on today's (16-Oct-2003) rawhide release. It's virtually
identical to the real old bug 40072.
Could the problem be that I don't have the 75 dpi fonts installed, only the 100
Here's what I get (in my .xsession-errors) upon starting up2date-4.1.7-1:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/up2date", line 1183, in ?
sys.exit(main() or 0)

style.font = gtk.load_font("-*-helvetica-bold-r-normal--12-*-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1")
I actually don't have that font installed.
Here's the output of (xlsfonts | grep "helvetica-bold-r-normal--12"):
Looking through my fonts, it seems that I have an 8859-1 font for every size
I have XFree86-4.3.0-40 and all related packages (excepting the 75dpi fonts).
