[RHBA-2001:145-04] New Japanese and Korean font packages available

                   Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat Bug Fix Advisory

Synopsis:          New Japanese and Korean font packages available
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2001:145-04
Issue date:        2001-10-31
Updated on:        2001-11-05
Product:           Red Hat Linux
Keywords:          hanterm charset temporary file alias ISO8859-1
Cross references:  

1. Topic:

As shipped, the Korean font/character set associations do not work with 
the hanterm.  Additionally, the Japanese font package contains 
sub-optimal aliases for using those fonts in a Western encoding.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 7.2 - i386, noarch

3. Problem description:

The Korean fonts package for Red Hat Linux 7.2 has an incorrect character 
set mapping.  This results in hanterm not being able to run correctly.

The Japanese TrueType fonts package for Red Hat Linux 7.2 
contains a number of font aliases for Western (ISO8859-1) encodings of 
those fonts.  These aliases can conflict with true ISO8859-1 system 
fonts.  Additionally, the aliases for the bold and italic ISO8859-1 
encodings of these fonts were incorrect.

Additionally, temporary files used during Korean font package 
installation have predictable names, with possible security implications.

4. Solution:

Install the new font package(s).  Additionally, an update to the eel 
(Eazel Extensions Library) package is being made available to enable use 
of the new TrueType fonts package in a Japanese GNOME environment.

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

53798 - Hanterm can't find gulim fonts...
54767 - Can't handling family name for mincho and gothic
