Please file a separate bugreport against fonts-freefont to track that. > I need to mention, that the above patch (adding another udeb to the > build) increases the netboot-gtk image (amd64) from 69 to 85 MB! > Therefore that's probably not an acceptable solution as it is. > But I think Jonas would be able move the relevant glyphs to another > udeb maybe, so that we don't need the whole fonts-noto-unhinted-udeb > in the build? Yes, as soon as (or if at all) I installer team confirms they are ok using Noto Gujarati, I include that font in fonts-noto-hinted-udeb. - Jonas -- * Jonas Smedegaard - idealist & Internet-arkitekt * Tlf.: +45 40843136 Website: http://dr.jones.dk/ [x] quote me freely [ ] ask before reusing [ ] keep private
