Description James Laska 2005-01-11 15:16:29 EST
RPM firefox-1.0-8.i386

I might not have assigned this to the correct component.  HOwever, my initial
instinct is mozilla/firefox.  My apologies if this is incorrect.  Please advise.

I Noticed when I browse the following website which contains a .rpm and a .deb
file.  The .deb has a debian-style icon associated with it.  While the .rpm has
the stock icon.  It would be nice if we could recognize our own packages.


I have attached a screenshot in the event that the above website is not available.

This is not a browser bug.  The browser is faithfully rendering the index page
and icons supplied by the web server.

warren: that was my guess also ... feel free to reassign it to the correct
component ... as I have no idea where this bug should land.

There is no way this is a firefox bug.

The HTML source of the page contains a reference to unknown.gif in one place and
deb.gif in another which is what we render:

<IMG border="0" src="/icons/back.gif" ALT="[DIR]"> <A

Nice catch caillon.  I think this now stands as the worst bug report I've ever
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2005-01-12 21:33:00 EST
Part of the problem here is the "official" IANA (or some other standards body)
recognized use of .rpm is for RealPlayer.  Almost every web server on the planet
has the MIME type of RealPlayer instead of rpm for .rpm.
