Flash text on Fedora Core 5

Hi there. This is just a little reminder, or HOWTO, or something, that might help others to fix a problem that I've had to handle myself. If you're experiencing troubles with Macromedia's Flash plugin on Fedora (Core 5 here) in a way that you can't see any fonts on Flash, you'll just have to do this:

# mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/
# ln -s /etc/X11/fs/config /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fs/config

You can blame on this to Macromedia's personel, that chose to staticly refer to the X fonts in their binary blob. It seems that the problem is solved on Flash 9, already in beta for Linux.
