Question Do I need both fontconfig and fontconfig-infinality?


I installed the infinality font enhancement packages from this thread http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5080269

As the post describes, I ran

Code:
# upgradepkg freetype-2.5.0.1-x86_64-infinality20131213did.txz
# installpkg fontconfig-infinality-1-20130104_1-noarch-1did.txz

This replaced my stock freetype package but left me with two fontconfig packages installed. Do I need both the stock fontconfig and fontconfig-infinality, or should I remove the fontconfig package from my system?

Yes, you need both. fontconfig-infinality just adds some extra configuration files.

You can look at their entries in /var/log/packages to see which packages contain which files.

Furthermore, they are named so that Slackware's packaging tools (e.g. upgradepkg) will recognize them as two distinct packages, not two versions of the same one.
