Summary: Yast2 missing font dependency
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: Other
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1

Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I installed a system without desktop but with minimal X, so GUI programs can be
run, but as the system will only ever be used remotely an X server would be

Yast2 then does not start. First xauth is missing for ssh. Then IIRC it crashes
until some missing X stuff is installed, and then it's unusable because the
header font is 10 metres wide and off the screen, and the normal text font
isn't right either.

On another system with desktop I get

# grep -i font strace-yast | grep -i open | grep -i pfb
24044 open("/usr/share/fonts/URW/n019003l.pfb", O_RDONLY) = 14
24044 open("/usr/share/fonts/URW/n019004l.pfb", O_RDONLY) = 15
24125 open("/usr/share/fonts/URW/n019003l.pfb", O_RDONLY) = 14
24125 open("/usr/share/fonts/URW/n019004l.pfb", O_RDONLY) = 14
# grep -i font strace-yast | grep -i open | grep -i ttf
23981 open("/usr/share/fonts/truetype/DejaVuSans.ttf", O_RDONLY) = 4
24044 open("/usr/share/fonts/truetype/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf", O_RDONLY) = 14
24125 open("/usr/share/fonts/truetype/LiberationSans-Bold.ttf", O_RDONLY) = 14
24125 open("/usr/share/fonts/truetype/DejaVuSans.ttf", O_RDONLY <unfinished

After manually installing xorg-x11-fonts-core and liberation-fonts yast2 still
doesn't look quite right with the fonts but it's usable.
