Description skopp 1998-11-24 12:41:10 UTC
vga.pcf (in .../X11/.../font/misc/) directory is not
recognized by X11, so when you execute xdos or xtermdos the
font is not used.  (So, e.g. you don't have the nice dos
border character)
This happens to unresolved dependencies with the rpm
containing the X11 font!
in the font/misc directory, the vga.pcf file exists but is
NOT mentioned in font.alias.

To fix it:  Edit the font.alias file, replace "72" with "73"
in the first line and add a line "vga.pcf vga" at the end of
the file.

Dear Redhat RPM-Maintainer, pls. add this to you future
dosemu rpms, thanks.

This probably won't get fixed until 6.0, when the X11 font directories
gain the ability to be rebuilt automatically by RPM whenever they are
"touched" by a package being installed or uninstalled.
