Description Michael J. Chudobiak 2008-06-27 14:28:36 UTC
xawtv is missing an xorg-x11-fonts-?? package dependency. It is possible to
install and run xawtv without the right font package, it which case xawtv says
"Oops: can't load any font" and aborts.

I'm not sure which exact rpm it needs. I installed all xorg-x11-fonts-* packages
to fix the problem.

Comment 1 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-06-27 15:23:22 UTC
It requires at least some bitmap fonts (normally from /usr/share/X11/fonts).

Different rpms can provide this, hence a solution could be just to add
"Requires: /usr/share/X11/fonts", although it seems not reliable.

You can try to leave only xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi -- it should satisfy.

Actually, all the font specifications for xawtv are set in
/usr/share/X11/app-defaults/Xawtv file. But I don't know whether non-bitmap is
allowable at all or not...

Comment 2 Dmitry Butskoy 2008-07-21 15:54:19 UTC
What font packages are installed on your system?

Run "rpm -qa \*font\*" to obtain a list...

Comment 3 Michael J. Chudobiak 2008-07-21 17:54:11 UTC
Sorry, I've reconfigured the system and I am not using xawtv currently, so I
can't provide any additional details. This packaging glitch is not affecting me
currently, so you can close the bug if you want. Or fix it :-)
