Description Ville Skyttä 2004-09-02 18:50:31 EDT
It would be nice to have kdebase (~ konqueror) to own the mozilla
plugin dirs.

In short: %{_libdir}/mozilla/plugins is the generic location for
mozilla plugins; and plugin packages could have a rpm dependency on
that dir, not a specific browser.  I don't want to have mozilla
installed to be able to use plugins with konqueror...

For more discussion, see bug 131247.  Will attach a suggested patch.

Own Mozilla plugin dir(s)
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-09-03 08:21:44 EDT
Ville, it's perhaps better if the plugin package should own the
%{_libdir}/mozilla, %{_libdir}/mozilla/plugins.
Comment 3 Ville Skyttä 2004-09-03 13:30:56 EDT
But that does not help with the initial requirement, it actually would
make it impossible to implement, see bug 131247.

When installing a plugin package, we need a way to specify a
dependency: "this package requires a web browser that loads Mozilla
compatible plugins from $dir".

So a foo-plugin package would have:

   Requires: %{_libdir}/mozilla/plugins

Now, if any _plugin_ package owns that dir, the dependency is not
reliable any more, because it would be satisfied by that plugin, not a
Comment 4 Ngo Than 2004-09-05 17:33:55 EDT
it's fixed in 3.3.0-2.
