Re: Xorg: missing fixed fonts
It's been a long time debian installation didn't went so wrong...(dell
& ibm in the past were a lot more smoother).
so I was missing "xfonts-base" package...don't ask I do not know why
in the world it was not installed/or got removed somehow.
Because my ethernet would go off without warning, I had a very nice
surprise: firefox would refuse to start and crash in the background. I
realize that, starting epiphany, which would tell me : network is
down. I had to remove the brand new .mozilla directory from my user
and start firefox again making sure the network is up.
I solved the network using:
I'll wait for the next kernel version (2.6.26) which -hopefully- will
solve my ethernet issue.
As a side node I could never get the module-assistant auto-install
nvidia to work, even explicitely setting gcc to an older gcc 4.1
version, it would fail with an empty log. I had to run the shell
script from nvidia.

I have finally a -somewhat- working debian box, but after much
struggling with the nvidia driver I cannot see any of the fixed fonts.
How can I report something more usefull ? Or if anyone with a cristal
ball understand what is going on my side, please suggest a solution.
