Description Colin Adams 2005-06-15 08:33:42 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-GB; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

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
Categories=X-Fedora;
 to
Categories=Game;X-Fedora;
and then to run update-desktop-database

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
xboard-4.2.7-10.fc4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See description

Additional info:

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....
