Description Olivier Crête 2003-04-06 12:17:44 UTC
I upgraded to fontconfig 2.1 and gtk+ apps stopped working with a "no fonts
found" messages and xterm just segfaults. I use XF4.3. using cvs patch 20021221
in gentoo over 2.1 has the same problem. I tried running xterm inside gdb and
gdb seems to just freeze and do nothing. I use gentoo, but I use reasonable
cflags (-march=pentium4 -O3 -pipe).

Can you try current fontconfig CVS?  There were numerous bugs related to font
data management in fontconfig 2.1 that have been fixed by now.
Comment 2 Keith Packard 2003-04-17 14:55:43 UTC
I'm going to assume this has been fixed; let me know if current CVS still has
