Description Rex Dieter 2006-02-10 07:50:51 EST
Includes
%post 
%{_bindir}/update-mime-database %{_datadir}/mime &> /dev/null

But is missing
Requires(post): desktop-file-utils
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-02-10 12:19:52 EST
Nevermind... update-mime-database comes from *this* package (shared-mime-info),
not desktop-file-utils.
Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-03-30 10:16:05 EST
OK, brainfart at first attempt, let's try again.  

Per
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ScriptletSnippets#head-d37d740d062d3aa6013aab44a79de88a6c1fe533
and discussions on the FE mailing list (I can dig up references if you want), it
was agreed that it is wrong/wasteful that *every* rpm that includes application
.desktop files with
MimeType=
entries must include
Requires(post): desktop-file-utils
Requires(postun): desktop-file-utils

Instead, it was proposed that some core bit of any desktop that supports the use
of shared-mime-info (like Gnome) should itself include
Requires: desktop-file-utils

Now, I'm not sure if adding the Requires to shared-mime-info is the best place
for it, but it should be somewhere.

redhat-menus nowadays depends on it, maybe that's enough?
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2006-04-09 13:10:40 EDT
Ville, yeah, it's a round-about way to get to the same result...
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2006-07-24 16:55:10 EDT
I'm content with the Req being redhat-menus, so let's close this out (and I'll
update the wiki to drop the extraneous Requires bits)
