rpm -ivh cabextract-*.rpm
Fetch the latest msttcorefonts .spec from corefonts's Home,
Build & install
Prepare your build environment,
echo '%_topdir %(echo $HOME)/rpmbuild' > $HOME/.rpmmacros
mkdir -p $HOME/rpmbuild/BUILD

Tweak the .specs to point to relevant SF mirrors (vi msttcorefonts-*.spec),
Build the binary, install it and restart the X font server,
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
rpm -ivh $HOME/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-*.rpm
service xfs restart
Fix the path for phpsyslog,
mkdir /usr/share/fonts/truetype
