Various functions fail when Confluence is installed on RHEL 7.4 due to OS-level font bug



      Customers have observed various problems if Confluence is installed on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 due to a system font problem on the operating system level (see: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1484079). Please view the linked bugs/KBs below to workaround this issue in Confluence.

      This also affects RHEL 7.3, per the comments in the above RHEL bug and this duplicate: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1479563


      • Short term - create health check warning in logs and possibly Support Tools to warn administrators whose installations are hosted on RHEL 7.4
      • Longer term - We should explore moving away from system fonts as a dependency
