FontConfig Cache Builder service fails



Managers,

The FontConfig Cache Builder Service fails on one of our servers.

-bash-3.00$ svcs -xv
svc:/application/font/fc-cache:default (FontConfig Cache Builder)
State: maintenance since Tue Apr 08 09:08:31 2008
Reason: Start method failed repeatedly, last died on Killed (9).
See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-KS
See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M fc-cache
See: /var/svc/log/application-font-fc-cache:default.log
Impact: 1 dependent service is not running:
svc:/application/graphical-login/cde-login:default

This leads to xwindows not starting up.

-bash-3.00$ tail /var/svc/log/application-font-fc-cache:default.log
[ Apr 8 09:05:40 Method property group 'stop' is not present. ]

It seems that there are two versions of SUNWfreetype2 installed on the
system.

-bash-3.00$ SUNWfreetype2 FreeType2 Font library
(sparc) 6.6.2.7400,REV=0.2004.12.15
-bash-3.00$ pkginfo -x SUNWfreetype2.2
SUNWfreetype2.2 FreeType 2.1.2 Font library
(sparc) 6.4.1.4000,REV=0.2003.01.10

The server is running Solaris 10 Update 4.

Is the best way of fixing this
pkgrm SUNWfreetype2
pkgrm SUNWfreetype2.2
pkgadd /path/to/good/SUNWfreetype2

or am i going to run into dependency hell?

Thanks
Karl
