This code was suggested in the other thread and I saw it on RH's mailing list:

Code:
chmod a+r /etc/pango/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/pango.modules


I thought that was fixed by now, but those of you with messed boxes try it and let me know.

You know maybe installing the updated drivers from nvidia website would have helped. I mean, sometimes there are problems with the generic drivers.

Hmm. If we can pinpoint what's causing it and that it really is with synaptic, i'm sure the developers of that would be happy to know about it. I think we need some more info first before we submit it to them though.

Thanks,

I'm sorry I haven't posted earlier. Little hurricane ivan had me kinda powerless.

I think this problem may be a gnome problem not just a blag/fedora problem. While I was trying other distros I gave Suse a go. I did a complete update through YaST, when it was complete and I logged out and back in All of my text was so small I could barely even see it. If I remember correctly if I logged in as root eveything was fine.
To fix it I had to change something in the gnome config file. I will try to post when I find the info again.

Maybe this will help us find the problem :D

Hi guess what, I now am having the same problem. I just installed Blag 10000 on a pentium II 350mhz computer and after running system update all my text is gone. I have never run into this problem before but I guess there is a first for everything. I ran the smart disk upgrade option and near the end of installing the packages there was an error. I cannot remember the exact name of the package but I remember is started with vim-something rpm. Don't know if that helps any. I am going to reinstall and try smart disk upgrade again just to make sure it wasn't because I did something weird.

Ok, I just did a complete install and I now have the same problem. After running update in synaptic all my text dissapears. Also, the package that caused an error during upgrade was vim-minimal. Not sure if this is causing my text to dissapear or not.

Was there anything updated in the repository recently? The only reason I ask is because I ran system update in synaptic a week ago and I had no problems. So something must have been changed in the past week to make my system go all buggy.

http://bugzilla.blagblagblag.org/show_bug.cgi?id=374

For those of you that can reproduce this issue can you do a test for me? Try updating with apt-get instead of synatpic to see if somehow synaptic is mucking things up. I realize it's a bit of a pain to do this test, but it's really needed. :)

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade


Thanks,

-Jeff

apt-get updates OK.

When I installed blag a few weeks ago I got it installed and then did apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. No problems all was well.

A few days ago I installed Blag on a spare PC of mine I am not real familiar with synatpic (always used yum or apt) so I though what the heck. Clicked "update-System" and then "apply" All seem to do well but when I logged out and back in All my text was practicaly gone. The font was so small it was impossible to see.

I mentioned that I thought it was a gnome problems and not a Blag/Fedora/Redhat problem because I had the exact same thing happen when I updated a Suse box with YaST.

I have tried to find the fix that I found the first time but I have not been successful as of yet. It was something to do with a .gconf ot one of the .gnome files.

I'll post as soon as I find it again.

Well, like I said before I ran system update with synaptic a week ago and I had no problems but now I do. Anyways, I am now reinstalling to see what happens when I run apt get instead of synaptic for the update. I will write back in a bit to tell you what happens.

I am trying to run aptget but typing apt-get update in terminal doesn't do anything. Do I have the command wrong?

What kind of error is it giving?

You also have to be root or super user to run apt-get :D

Ok after reinstalling blag 10000 twice and having problems after running system upgrade in synaptic I now ran apt-get for my third try. Apt-get installed everything fine with no problems. I can still read all my text :) Also, I did not receive any error during install like I did before with the vim error I had. It is odd to think that it is a synaptic bug cause I used synaptic a week ago to upgrade and I had no problems. Was there a new release of synaptic added recently?
