Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143444
xscreensaver-4.10-skip-unavailable-hacks.patch is unnecessary
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:05 EST
This patch (included with xscreensaver-4.10-8.src.rpm from
updates/enterprise/3desktop/) is apparently intended to omit
uninstalled programs from the list in xscreensaver-demo --
but that's what the "ignoreUninstalledPrograms" preference
You already set "ignoreUninstalledPrograms: True" in
xscreensaver-4.10-skip-unavailable-hacks.patch is redundant.
The only effect that the latter patch has is to make it
impossible for users to set"ignoreUninstalledPrograms"
to False, if that's what they prefer.
