Well, I'm running 2.6.22. I built the lirc modules myself. They work fine, 
at least with a PVR 350.

There are glibc, qt, and xorg updates to Fedora 7. Do you have those updates 
installed? It looks like I have some kind of a problem rendering the GANT 
menu font, and just that font. Changing font sizes, in theme setup, makes no 
difference. Very weird, everything was fine in FC 6.

I notice that the themes/G.A.N.T./theme.xml file has references to:


xlsfonts does not show that I have any Arial typeface. If you run xlsfonts, 
do you have "arial" fonts showing up somewhere in the list? If so, then I 
need to hunt down the correct rpm that load Arial fonts. If not, then there 
must be some aliasing in Qt of Arial font to some other font, that I need to 
track down.
