font path (X server)

Dear all,

My Debian 3.1 uses XFree86 and all fonts are found in /usr/lib/X11/fonts
du -sh /usr/lib/X11/fonts/
18M     /usr/lib/X11/fonts/
My SuSE 9.3 uses Xorg and all fonts are found in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts
du -sh /usr/lib/X11/fonts/
89M     /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/
Why is there such a difference in size?

Regards, Carsten

Well, it could be that Suse uses many more fonts than Debian. Or that the fonts on Suse are stored in a different format. Why don't you use the "ls" command to check the files?
