Booting from ZFS partition and UI fonts (pushing it)

Hi :)

I found in forum that with ZFS on boot there's something with fonts - I couldn't set it up like this on my but I've got an idea how to try to tackle this, I'm attachin' program called ftxvalidator that may be simpler to allow for figuring out things, together with code of it that I was able to generate with some uncommon tool. You run it like this f.e.:

Code: Select all
./ftxvalidator -r -o FontValidation.plist /Library/Fonts/ArnoPro-Regular.otf

I thought of enclosing FontValidation.plist I got running this cmd for ArnoPro-Regular.otf.

If that helps with anything and you can support for doing quality stuff, I'd be grateful if you could send me some funds via PayPal to audiovisart@gmail.com. I do skilled programming/design things for Linux more often, this is a new one for macOS. Let me know if I can assist you in relation to this somehow even though I think you're much more into it than I am.

All great & S2YS

Alas, finally setup Catalina ZFS-boot, which does not run well. But I had a couple of minutes to try
Code: Select all
# ./ftxvalidator -r -o FontValidation.plist /Library/Fonts/ArnoPro-Regular.otf
objc[1152]: Objective-C garbage collection is no longer supported.

Lundy,

Can you check it on 10.11.6? It ran fine on mine several minutes ago, my simple thinking is that if you can find out what's incorrect on El Captain and solve it there, it'll probably also be good on Mojave, Catalina. I don't know if there's ArnoPro, I was running it for another font now.

As it happens, fonts appear to work correctly on Catalina. So we may have fixed the issue somewhere along the way.
