Description Yaron Minsky 2004-05-23 17:06:58 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040510

Description of problem:
I just upgraded fedora core 1 to fedora core 2, and discovered that
the preferences and system-settings directories have lots of stuff
they shouldn't.  In particular, both contain an Applications
directory, a Graphics directory, an Internet directory, and so on.  It
appears that they have everything from /etc/X11/applnk/

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
Install fedora core 2 on top of fedora core 1.  I doubt this is always
a problem, but I don't know what the underlying cause was.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:05:45 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 2 John Thacker 2006-04-24 16:45:13 EDT
This should be resolved in later releases, but it is still possible 
to get multiple menu entries if you install outside packages that
put things in /etc/X11/applink as well as other places.

Closing due to lack of response from reporter.
