xorg-server-21.1.3 does not display fonts correctly as compared to 1.20.11
I'm trying to update from xorg-server-1.20.11 to xorg-server-21.1.3, but the fonts do not display correctly.
At first xorg-server-21.1.3 will not start:
[ 264.459] (WW) `fonts.dir' not found (or not valid) in "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts"). [ 264.459] Entry deleted from font path. [ 264.459] (Run 'mkfontdir' on "/usr/local/lib/X11/fonts"). [ 264.459] (==) FontPath set to:
Note that the fonts are a loop mounted squashfs package symlinked to the root fs and the fonts.dir files are one level down in 75dpi, TTF, Type1, misc, etc, which xorg-server-1.20.11 has no problem with.
Anyway, after "sudo mkfontdir /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts", which creates fonts.dir containing "0", xorg-server-21.1.3 starts with:
$ sudo mkfontdir /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts [ 4113.857] (==) FontPath set to: /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts
..but fonts do not display correctly - is it possible that xorg-server-21.1.3 does not follow symlinks?
Note that with xorg-server-1.20.11:
[ 94.062] (==) FontPath set to: /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/misc/, /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/, /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/Type1/, /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/
