Question about the fontconfig programs now being needed by some
programs. The latest Gimp build, 1.3.20 complains about fontconfig
when trying to start with the standard XFree86 files installed.
Although XFree86 includes fontconfig, programs like Gimp are not seeing
that without having the fontconfig program installed separate from the
XFree86. Correct me if my logic or thoughts are wrong, please.
Now I have the fontconfig rpms, but when trying to install them, of
course, XFree86 complains, XFree86-devel complains, xf86tools and
So how does one proceed at this point? Install with a --replacefiles?
Rebuild the src XFree86 rpms, altering the spec files not to include
Suggestions, comments welcome!
