Help me fix sdtfontadm program

Hi all.

I am trying to add font to use however sdtfontadm fail so many times regardless of using GUI or CDE. It look likes a very regular error.

It release "Segamentation Fault (core dump) ./sdtfontadm "

The serious of this problem is its hard to find a way without reinstalling the OS.

And the program cannot run.

Have anybody experience about this error? Please help me.

Thank you and Regards.

its Solaris 10 newest ...

@seg: thank for ur tip. I also tried so hard on google but maybe i not lucky or i don't use right key words Smilie

My work is adding some Unicode font for FireFox in en.UTF-8 locale. Today i found that it just require add the font path and vi /etc/fonts/fonts.conf like this:
<dir>/usr/openwin/lib/X11/fonts</dir>
<dir>/font</dir>
<dir>/usr/openwin/lib/locale/KOI8-R/X11/fonts/TrueType/</dir>
<dir>/usr/openwin/lib/locale/ar/X11/fonts/TrueType/</dir>
# /usr/dt/bin/sdtfontadm

and not require use the sdtfontadm to add font Smilie

So fixing sdtfontadm is not necesscary. But i will try patching and notice if it sucess then.
