Build 0.3 is out the door, finally. When I get a chance to catch my breath, I'm sure I'll find bugs or packages that didn't get built.


I installed the new Red Hat Public Beta, Limbo last night, and I like parts of it, but the fonts in Gnome2 are horrid. Where I can configure the fonts, I can fix things, but in other places, where I can't, its either wholly unusable, or incredibly bloated looking.

Take a look at this: Screenshot

Notice how xchat's text window font is fairly decent, but the giant bloated font appears in all of the menus, and throughout Gaim. Gaim appears to have far more serious font issues, since I can't see any text sent to me.

If anyone knows how to resolve this specific ugliness (and no, I'm not really interested in "use KDE" or "don't use $WM, use $WM"), please drop me an email: tcallawa@redhat.com

Also, if you need a pass to LinuxWorld in San Fran, email me. I have about 400.
