Description of problem:
XFree86 install script uses xftcache but it is not required.
...line 1: xftcache: command not found
XFree86 doesn't have any calls to xftcache (and never has). The problem
is in the ttfonts package. It has a stupid rpm triggerin script which
is totally broken. It is not possible to fix. Once a broken trigger
script is out in the wild, it is effectively not possible to prevent it
from execution in an automated and sane manner.
The message is harmless however, just ignore it.
Shouldn't an updated ttfonts rpm be released then ?
If only to stop people from reporting this bug every few weeks :)
Only 2 people have reported it so far. Personally I wold like to see the
package updated, but it is extremely low priority (it's also not my
There are no useability problems caused by this issue, and no real major
bug here. It is just an ugly cosmetic problem with a warning/error message
printed to the screen which should not have been. No harm is caused, and
that is what makes it something ultra low priority.
Even though it is not my package (ttfonts), I will investigate an erratum
possibility at some point, but it isn't high priority.
Actually this bug is not too difficult to find so you might avoid needless
Happy new year !
