Why don't my drake tools have any words?


I run Mandrake 10 official download. Great distro. I recentlyupgraded my X environment to xorg with no problem. I upgraded my kernel to 2.6.8.1 with relative ease, too. Now my drak tools (i.e.- rpmdrake, drakconf, etc.) have no words. The icons are there, but no words. This makes it hard to choose additional packages to install or make any configuration changes. Where did the words go and how do I get them back? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

cheers

OK, I'm just going to start over from scratch. I keep the 2.6.3-7mdk kernel and update it with the current security updates. I'll try and get 3d acceleration working with XF86 4.3 instead of xorg.

cheers

I had a similar problem caused by the font server.
The solution is at the end of this thread.
