Summary: Package rrdtool-1.3.4-1.26 renders unuseable graphics
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: RC 2
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Basesystem
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: jo@xxxxxxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.5; Linux; X11) KHTML/3.5.10 (like Gecko) SUSE

The rrdtool pakage shipped with openSUSE 11.1 creates graphics which lack some
mandatory features. As a result applications using rrdtool or it's librarys
produce unexpected/unusable results.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/share/doc/packages/rrdtool/examples
2. ./
3. inspect the generated stripes.png
Actual Results:
- rrdtool doesn't use a monospaced font. This breaks compatibility with
monitoring software like nagios or munin where multiple sources are plotted and
the numeric results displayed in a table like format. With a proportinal font,
the table colums do not align which makes them very hard to read. Besides the
font used is harder to read than the default VeraMono.ttf
- The font is not antialiased
- Vertical and horizontal scales are displayed in a dotted line style which
again decreases readability

Expected Results:
I would have expected that the results would be like openSUSE 11.0
