Installing xorg-x11-xauth is usually enough.

Yeah I added that one (xorg-x11-xauth), xfs (started), and yet when i
run an app, no go.


# ssh -Y user@remote_host

# app &

No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on http://fontconfig.org

So I tried installing a few fonts:

# yum install xorg-x11-fonts-100dpi xorg-x11-fonts-75dpi.noarch

Still the same error.

Perhaps, run:

yum groupinfo "X Window System"

and look under the "Mandatory Packages" section for a clue?
