Description Ben Schwartz 2009-08-06 02:43:55 UTC
xorg-server-1.4 depends on media-fonts/font-adobe-75dpi, media-fonts/font-misc-misc, and media-fonts/font-cursor-misc.  xorg-server-1.6 does not.  After installing xorg-server-1.6, Xephyr fails to start, with font errors.  Installing these fonts makes the font errors go away.

It appears, then, that Xephyr retains some dependency on these fonts, and the build's $DEPENDS is incorrect.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
bash$ Xephyr :100
Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed' 
Comment 1 James Earl Spahlinger 2009-08-06 03:41:50 UTC
Please paste the output of 'emerge --info' into a bugzilla comment to assist the maintainers in resolving this issue

Additionally what package is 'Xephyr' as I do not see it in the portage tree or in any of the main overlays.
Comment 2 Ben Schwartz 2009-08-06 04:20:04 UTC
Xephyr is built by the x11-base/xorg-server package, possibly only if the kdrive useflag is enabled.
