Description Antti Mäkelä 2009-04-12 20:07:00 UTC
After xorg-server 1.5.3 was stabilized and I upgraded to it as part of normal procedure (emerge -uvDaN world && emerge --depclean), font-cursor-misc was removed as part of the depclean.

The end result was that since I had another font which also defined the basic X cursor, I suddendly got a weird cursor instead of the default one.

Suggesting that font-cursor-misc is added back to the basic dependencies of xorg-server.

(Also lots of basic utils were gone, like xdpyinfo, but I guess this is also intentional).

7.4 does, but 7.2 apparently does not.

Do note that when xorg-server 1.5.3 was stabilized, the stable xorg-x11 remained at 7.2.
Comment 3 Rémi Cardona (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-04-19 11:22:02 UTC
Same issue, the X server no longer needs those fonts itself (the previous versions did really need the fonts).

As for the xorg-x11 meta, it will be stabilized later on. If you have any issues with specific applications failing due to the missing font, please open bugs against those.
