Description Jonathan Blandford 2003-06-25 16:58:39 UTC
Here's a patch to fix it.  I don't know if it's the right fix or not.
Comment 1 Jonathan Blandford 2003-06-25 16:59:10 UTC
Created attachment 49 [details] [review]
Comment 2 Jonathan Blandford 2003-06-25 17:26:31 UTC
I meant read-only, obviously.
Comment 3 Keith Packard 2003-06-25 17:35:39 UTC
I think the real problem is that $HOME isn't set.  Fontconfig is supposed to
survive this case, but the attached patch demonstrates a case where this isn't
true.  I found another issue with this same case.
Comment 4 Keith Packard 2003-06-25 17:45:47 UTC
I've audited uses of config->cache and other uses of $HOME and I think this was
the only remaining problem.  I've committed patches for this to both HEAD and
the 2.2 branch.
