xdm-error msg

xdm is working but the xlogin window is very small regarding
to the normal behaviour...and this is not due to Xresources!
in xdm-errors file i've :
Warning: Cannot convert string "-new century schoolbook-
medium-r-normal-*-180-*" to type FontStruct
So I understand that xdm is trying to convert the font
description string into a structure FontStruct...and fails.
Does anybody know the reason why ??
Thanks...

your server tries to use a font which is not available on you client's X-server, and therefore uses a default.
Change the Xresources for xdm to an appropriate font, or install that font on your client.

Actually, i think this problem may happen also if the font
is present but the fonts.dir + fonts.alias files are
corrupted...i'm not sure.

yes, these files must be up-to-date too
