RedHat problem


Hi, I'm running RedHat 9 with GNOME 2.2.0 and I'm having problems using some of their GUI settings programs.

For example, when I run redhat-config-packages from the GNOME-panel, the window appears for an instant before closing itself.

When I run it from the terminal, it gives me this error message:

/usr/lib/libfontconfig.so.1: undefined symbol: FT_Get_BDF_Property
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/redhat-config-packages/MainWindow.py", line 11, in ?
sys.exit(0)
NameError: name 'sys' is not defined


What is wrong with my computer? How can I fix it?

Thanks, Vince

I get some of the same errors, the difference is that I chose not to install most of the admin packages, if that was not your intention, then go back and install them.

I'm sure I installed the admin packages. How do I re-install them?

Just pop in your Red hat CD #1 and it will pull up the GUI for adding and editing all the packages
