| 
| On an upgrade of xterm from 327-1 to 329-1 starting an xterm now
| complains:
| 	$ xterm
| 	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font
| 	"-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-60-ISO8859-1"
| 	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font
| 	"-Misc-Fixed-medium-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
| 	/usr/bin/xterm: cannot load font
| 	"-Misc-Fixed-bold-R-*-*-10-100-75-75-C-120-ISO10646-1"
| 
| When I downgrade to 327-1 these messages do not show, so I assume the
| latest version requires specific fonts.
| 
| I installed all the X11 fonts which were described as "core font"
| (surprisingly a reinstall of "xinit" did not install these),
| but still I get the above messages. However I assume xterm falls back
| on
| some other font, as everything displays ok (as far as I checked).
| 
| Q1. Can someone point me at which font I need to install to not get
| these
| 	warnings (I tried a few, but no luck, and there are hundreds to
| 	try)?
| 
| Q2. Shouldn't these fonts be a dependency of xterm?
