I have Xvfb running on my OpenVZ host OS (CentOS 5), but when I attempt to execute Xvfb within a VE (tried centos-5-i386-minimal and centos-4-i386-minimal OS templates) I receive the same error:

----------------------------------
# export DISPLAY=:1.0
# Xvfb :1 -screen 0 800x600x16 &

Could not init font path element /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/CID/, removing from list!

Fatal server error:
could not open default font 'fixed'
----------------------------------

I am installing Xvfb using "vzyum 1 install xorg-x11-server-Xvfb" to install Xvfb on the VEs (the package is named slightly different on the centos-4 template).

I tried installing x11-fonts-base package, and several others, but none seem to include this mysterious "fixed" font file.

Any ideas where I can find this default font or how I can install it?

Thanks
