I couldn't resist downloading the TTF package, and only got a partial
success while installing. It gave this when installed by root on a RH
# rpm -v -i microsoft-ttf-1.02-4.noarch.rpm
chkfontpath: error opening /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TrueType/fonts.dir,
unwilling to add path
I used fuser and nothing was shown as accessing fonts.dir; root also has
perms to get there and the file exists. Since this is a True Type font
package, I assume that means it failed, although it now shows the rpm as
installed. Oh well.
