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):
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.
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.
