problem in xnest (could not find default font fixed)

Hi all,

trying to install xnest in Slax distro.

root@slax:/usr# Xnest :1 -query -nolisten inet6

XDMCP warning: INET6 UDP socket creation failed
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/OTF, removing from list!
Could not init font path element /usr/share/fonts/Type1, removing from list!

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'

I indeed could not find any OTF and TYPE1 fonts in this distro. There is only :
root@slax:/usr/share/fonts# ls
75dpi/ TTF/ misc/ override/

Could any of you have this kind of problems and could point out what I possibly should have done?

Thank you so much


slax, xnest
