suckless: dwm, st and missed terminus font

After upgrading on Fedora 26 I’ve got wrong font in my dwm and st. It was painful to look at.

During investigation, I’ve found that there, firstly, font terminus name has been changed from “Terminus” to “xos4 Terminus”. So, that could be solved by changing font name in dwm and st configs, it’s easy.

Secondary, fontconfig-devel package provides incorrect include directory in pkg-config’s file. The bug is reported to redhat: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1474072

The patch:--- /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/fontconfig.pc 2017-07-23 17:52:51.844365570 +0300 +++ /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/fontconfig.pc 2017-07-23 18:09:14.221529256 +0300 @@ -1,7 +1,7 @@ prefix=/usr exec_prefix=/usr libdir=/usr/lib64 -includedir=/usr/include +includedir=/usr/include/fontconfig sysconfdir=/etc localstatedir=/var PACKAGE=fontconfig

Rebuild. Done.

Looks like, I missed something on my home machine, but in the latest commit on git.suckless.org have no dependency in fontconfig.h

Upgrade Fedora… manually.

Fedora’s manual (any many other copy-paste blogs, damn) describes the following steps to upgrade system:

sudo dnf update --refresh sudo fedup download --releasever=24 --allowerasing sudo fedup reboot

Guys, don’t worry about “fedup” it’s just an alias script to “dnf system-upgrade”

I did that steps, reboot finished aaaand.. nothing! F23 on the board yet.
Sure, the post not about happy end and easy way (:
