--- Comment #32 from Felix Miata email@example.com 2008-11-06 07:20:58 MST --- I often see installation scripts that affect configs display messages onscreen during script execution, such as those for fonts complaining CJK fonts are not installed. Maybe kernel/initrd or bootloader update scripts could mention this file during execution.
Maybe this begs the question why other distros don't require this file? How do they manage without it, e.g. Mandriva, Ubuntu, Fedora?
