sorry, it's not reproduceable in FC2 and latest FC3. Where do you get
the kdebase-3.2.3-2.0.1.kde? The official kdebase in fc2 is 3.2.2-6.FC2!

drag and drop works fine for me

Comment 2 SZ BEAM 2004-11-11 22:39:44 UTC
drag and drop _into VIM_ works fine for you? This has been broken
since FC1, and I know others who have the same problem.

kdebase-3.2.3-2.0.1.kde came from http://kde-redhat.sf.net/ when I
tried to upgrade to fix this problem. Sorry, I forgot about that.

But this is also confirmed on FC3 as I just upgraded one system. The
versions of the packages on that are

Please reopen this bug, its not fixed and it is confirmed.

Comment 4 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 16:34:00 UTC
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.

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there haven't been any
updates to the report in quite a long time now after we've
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in our current OS release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA", however if you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and are still interested in Red Hat tracking
the issue, and assisting in troubleshooting the problem,
please feel free to provide the information requested above,
and reopen the report.

Thank you in advance.
