Description of problem:
After installing the update package of gtkhtml-1.1.9-0.9 and
gtkhtml-devel-1.1.9-0.9, all japanese fonts came broken only in the message
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Manually installed the update packages one by one in the order or released
date and started both X and evolution.
Actual Results: All Japanese characters were broken only in the message preview
pane and in the mail editor window. the mesage list pane still works fine.
Expected Results: Japanese text should be readable in the preview pane.
Downgraded to the previous version;
And remake the broken link.
# cd /usr/lib/
# rm libgtkhtml-1.1.so.3
# ln -s libgtkhtml-1.1.so.3.0.3 libgtkhtml-1.1.so.3
Then evolution works fine again.
Unfortunately, I don't think we'll get a chance to fix this, since
our current development versions of Evolution use a a different version of
GtkHTML. (gtkhtml3 rather than gtkhtml1)
The fedora packages of evolution-1.4 (see http://fedora.redhat.com
for information about the current Beta) should install and work fine
on Red Hat 9 ... I'm using that combination myself, and Japanese seems
to work fine.
