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):
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.
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.
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.
