Description Frank Thingholm 2008-03-19 17:23:34 EDT
Description of problem: When downloading a .rpm file (Skype, in this case), no option to "run with installer" is shown - only "run with other program" and "save" are shown. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Rawhide today - and has been so for the last appx. 7 days (haven't tried earlier). How reproducible: Every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click on a .rpm file link on a web page 2. Dialog box appears, options are RUN (with "other program") and SAVE. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Dialog box should suggest RUN "with installer". Additional info: Unsure where this belongs - Firefox, Gnome, Anaconda or Packaging. Well, here it is.

Created attachment 298607 [details] attempt to reproduce Actaully I cannot reproduce it now. This is what I get both with FF2 as well as FF3b4. Reporter, could elaborate a little bit on your environment? Is this upstream firefox binary, or firefox from RH package? Could you reproduce it with running firefox -safe-mode ?

Created attachment 298626 [details] Screen dump FF3 after clicking link to .rpm file. (The file seems to be for Fedora 5, but is the newest from Skype and works fine in Fedora 8.)
Comment 4 Frank Thingholm 2008-03-20 00:38:58 EDT
It's a clean boot.iso install-from-URL rawhide install made after the 19MAR2008 replication. No updates are available from rawhide, I haven't tried to use the update menu item in FF. FF3 reports "3.0b5pre". Opening terminal windows and running "firefox -safe-mode" makes no difference. A screen dump would be exactly the same as #3 (which was made with FF started from GNOME FF icon). And, yes, BTW, I run GNOME - and selected DANISH language and "dk" keyboard during install. (I have filed a separate bug about the "dk" keyboard layout chosen during install not taking effect.)

(Dummy comment with "I am providing the requested information for this bug" set.)
Comment 7 Will Woods 2008-03-27 15:17:11 EDT
In this specific case, the server sends the following header: Content-Type: application/x-redhat-package-manager Firefox correctly identifies it as an "RPM package" but doesn't offer pk-install-file as an application. Tried adding that to the MimeType field in pk-install-file.desktop but it didn't seem to change anything. This is firefox in current rawhide.

will, did you do all update-mime-database magic?

Comment 11 Richard Hughes 2008-03-28 07:57:14 EDT
I've changed the mimetype of pk-install-file upstream to: MimeType=application/x-rpm;application/x-redhat-package-manager; This should fix things. They'll be a release today and should be in rawhide by tomorrow.
