Hi Rex, 

but wouldn't it be better if this assumption was handled by rpm
dependencies. The system I am talking about is a headless station,
where no window manager of any kind is installed. Just some gui 
applications are called remotely. Since we figured out that the 
problem was a missing font, there is no real issue for us any more, 
but others might have to walk the same road. The applications 
themselves already have a dependency on qt. But qt itself (at least 
without fonts) seg faults (ex. qtconfig). If all font packages would 
not just provide themselves but some kind of virtual font package, it 
would be easy for the applications or even qt itself to include 
such a dependency and therefor not seg faulting any more (which can
be tough to debug).
