Description (last modified by )
This isn't an actual issue. I had problems compiling the bdftopcf program in XorgApps because what turns out to be an issue with libXfont. On Christmas Day last year, DJ removed parts of the Wiki that deals with the exact issue I see.
* NOTE: the system having this issue does not have BLFS-SVN packages installed, nor is it even close to an LFS-6.2 system. It is a recently built system using LFS SVN and many updated BLFS packages including FreeType and Fontconfig. *
Anyway, the relevant text removed from the Wiki is this: http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/wiki/Xorg7Libraries?action=diff&version=8
- I'm wondering what is the root reason why this issue exists?
(package versions probably?) I did not try to search the mail archives for this issue.
- Why was that text removed from the Wiki? If it wasn't
relevant to current BLFS-6.2, then we probably should leave stuff like that, but add a description or something that it only happens in XYZ configuration (or whatever).
- We should use the comment facility when changes such as this
are made to the Wiki so that you don't have to search mail archives or something else to find out why the change was made.
Please don't hesitate to close this ticket. I marked it for 6.3 simply so there may be a reply and it stays in queue.
