Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-04-22 16:12:46 UTC
Is this a modified Red Hat Linux 7.2 in any way?  I don't remember a ttfm
package in Red Hat Linux 7.2.

Comment 3 alan bray 2003-04-23 17:57:10 UTC
From official RedHat 7.2 cdrom-set.
ttfm could be from some 'from source' compiled program. Have been using since 
RH 5.2
I do have 'extras' (not RedHat) such as Coin and Karma but none of them seem to 
have ttfm (is this TrueTypeFontManager?).
Could I upgrade using just RPM? 

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2003-05-12 20:48:30 UTC
I would recommend trying a more recent release than 7.2, we've made alot of
improvements since them.
