Changing to proper product and component so developer will see this bug.

> font configlibrary not correctly configured

fontconfig is a separate package, reassigning to fontconfig component

What is 'restartx'?

Do you have extra fonts installed in /usr/share/fonts beyond
what came with Red Hat Linux?

Was the Red Hat 8 system customized in any way? (E.g.,
extra software installed?)

Comment 4 harry van breugel 2003-05-01 20:20:23 UTC
sorry about "restartx": was "startx";

I had extra fonts installed: I had adapted the system to Thai fonts.

Meanwhile I have installed Shrike RH9 without the update option. This didn't raise 
any problems. So probably it was the Thai fonts that caused the problem?

Comment 5 Owen Taylor 2003-05-01 20:59:52 UTC
It would be very interesting if you could try to install the 
Thai fonts on the freshly installed system (by putting them
in a subdirectory of /usr/share/fonts and running fc-cache
as root) and see if the problem reoccurs.

Comment 6 harry van breugel 2003-05-02 08:02:44 UTC
I put Thai fonts in  /usr/share/fonts/Thai directory and ran fc-cache. Then I 
rebooted, but -I don't know if that is of any help!- nothing exceptional happened: 
everything works as before. 

There is a problem though: In Psyche the Thai fonts worked well, but now the Thai 
fonts still don't show in the applications (meaning they aren't installed well yet, I 
think) and so maybe only if that is fixed, may the problem arise again... (I am trying 
to find out how to properly install the Thai fonts again).

Probably not current to the current codebase any more.
