Seems a not unreasonable expectation. Moved to shared-mime-types as I
*think* that is where such a change would need to go.
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2004-06-19 07:15:07 EDT
Severity set to low because opening a comamnd line and using rpm works
for installing packages.
Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:17:55 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 4 John Thacker 2006-10-28 13:54:02 EDT
Closing per lack of response.  Note that FC1 and FC2 are no longer
supported even by Fedora Legacy.  Please install a still supported
version and retest.  If this still occurs on FC3 or FC4 and is a
security issue, please assign to that version and Fedora Legacy.  If it still
occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct version.
