    Re:Important gentoo updates

    babbing, you're the resident Gentoo guru, and I'm now running it, so can you tell me how to fix my X fonts? They are way tiny, and it seems like X didn't come with CID fonts. Any help here would be great.

    skynet have you tried "emerge -s CID"? this will search for any package that contains anything to do with CID.

    It doesn't pull up any fonts. The quest continues.

    Re:Important gentoo updates

    so try "emerge -s fonts" or something of the like. portage is really easy to use. also if you want to manually look around for them you can goto /usr/portage/ and then look in the subdirs and stuff, and you could also go updatedb then locate CID or whatever

    Re:Important gentoo updates

    Yeah, I've done all this, and still can't find what I'm looking for. I did manage to get ahold of Arial, but it didn't seem to help my situation any.

    Re:Important gentoo updates

    eeeeek, sorry i haven't been around much. i have my hands full with gentoo right now myself. I jsut went through a large overhaul of hardware. i actually found older versions of gentoo easier to install than the new one, besides the fact it looks much better now. have you looked on the gentoo irc channel?

    i will try to look into this more, but i am not near my computer nearly as much as i would like to be
