Description Daniel Drake 2012-05-15 17:11:07 EDT
fontconfig's %post scripts use grep and mkdir but there is no listed dependency on these programs.

When installing a system we are seeing that yum may decide to install fontconfig before grep and coreutils, which will cause the post script to not be run correctly.

Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2012-05-15 23:43:34 EDT
Fixed in fontconfig-2.8.0-7.fc17
Comment 2 Fedora Update System 2012-05-15 23:45:00 EDT
fontconfig-2.8.0-7.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Comment 3 Kamil Páral 2012-05-18 09:18:46 EDT
The upstream report says "The fontconfig errors are harmless". Are there any issues that would indicate this needs to be fixed in Fedora 17 GOLD and not as a standard update?
Comment 4 Tim Flink 2012-05-18 17:21:01 EDT
Discussed in the 2012-05-18 blocker bug review meeting. This claims to be harmless error messages and could possibly result in temporary issues with building a font cache and slowing down font rendering. While unfortunate, does not seem critical and thus rejected as NTH.
Comment 5 Fedora Update System 2012-06-06 22:34:54 EDT
fontconfig-2.8.0-7.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
