Description of problem:
After upgrading from FC3 to FC4, attempting to run xboard reported
a problem - unable to find libreadline.so.4.
Surmising that the system upgrade had not upgraded this game, I did a yum upgrade on gnuchess and xboard.
But after that, there was no longer an entry on the GNOME Games menu for Chess.
The fix was to edit /usr/share/application/fedora-xboard.desktop to change
and then to run update-desktop-database
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Problem solved locally, but bug created to alert package maintainer.
Thanks for the report. A new build is currently being requested which should fix
the missing Game category
BTW, you're right about the libreadline problem and solution - xboard moved from
Core to Extras, and anaconda doesn't automatically update apps from Extras. A
yum update immediately after upgrade is always a good idea because of that....
