Description Bob Wainscott 2004-09-06 01:55:21 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.2)

Description of problem:
When I double-click on a downloaded RPM file, Gnome tells me "there is
no action associated with this file".  What happened to packages
automatically unpacking on double-click?

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Downlaod an RPM file
2.  Double-Click the file

Actual Results:  Get the box from Gnome asking me to associate a
program or application to the file.

Expected Results:  The package should unpack and install.

Also does this in KDE as well.
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 2004-09-06 09:22:13 EDT
The *.rpm extension is IANA registered to Real Audio, not RPM,
and so mime type association between file and application

WONTFIX should be taken as CANTFIX.
