These are rough notes from whatever I was working on, interested in or thinking about at the time. They vary greatly in quality and length, but prove useful to me, and hopefully to you too!

New dependency font(:lang-en) required by fontconfig-2.10.95-11

I upgraded fontconfig on a machine that does not have internet access, from fontconfig-2.10.95-10 to fontconfig-2.10.95-11, and got the following error:

error: Failed dependencies:
        font(:lang=en) is needed by fontconfig-2.10.95-11.el7.x86_64

This dependency upon font(lang=en) was added in #1403957 (which I do not have access to) and a related bug was raised in #1484094 (which I do have access to!).

Using yum I searched for what provides the dependency:

yum provides "font(:lang=en)"

Many fonts are listed, an excerpt follows:

gnu-free-mono-fonts-20120503-8.el7.noarch : GNU FreeFont Monospaced Font
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Provides    : font(:lang=en)



gnu-free-sans-fonts-20120503-8.el7.noarch : GNU FreeFont Sans-Serif Font
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Provides    : font(:lang=en)



gnu-free-serif-fonts-20120503-8.el7.noarch : GNU FreeFont Serif Font
Repo        : base
Matched from:
Provides    : font(:lang=en)

Installing the above fonts resolves the dependency issue.
