Description Jim Gettys 2004-02-25 09:32:25 UTC
XF86 has stale freetype bits. Installing them breaks people's systems. When X is built, the default should be to use the installed version of freetype. So the configuration should default to off, or maybe removed completely, as the server can now use the installed version as a normal shared library and we no longer have the loadable module problem that was still present in 4.3 (IIRC). This should also be release noted, with at least one known to work version of freetype.

Fixed for Linux. Please tell me which other systems have libfreetype supplied with the OS.

The rlease notes have been written. They just need to be updated if we add more platforms which have this as the default.
