Description of problem:
However no parent package owns /usr/share/mc/templates
(mc is not a parent package of gnumeric)
I.e. if installing gnumeric without having mc installed,
/usr/share/mc/templates and /usr/share/mc
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install gnumeric
2. yum remove mc
3. rpm -qf /usr/share/mc /usr/share/mc/templates
Actual Results: # rpm -qf /usr/share/mc /usr/share/mc/templates
file /usr/share/mc is not owned by any package
file /usr/share/mc/templates is not owned by any package
This causes these directories to stay around orphaned/unowned upon removing the gnumeric rpm.
Expected Results: gnumeric should own
should not be shipped.
Yet another alternative would be to put
into a subpackage (e.g. gnumeric-mc)
and let this subpackage
Thanks for reporting, I'll just own the dir instead of creating yet another
I concider this bug not worthy of a new release though, I'll fix it when
something that thus warrant a new release comes along.
Hmm, this bug has long been "fixed" by a newer release I just forgot to close
it, on closer examination though it turns out that mc itself doesn't own
/usr/share/mc/templates only /usr/share/mc as /usr/share/mc/templates doesn't
seem to get used by mc at all, and the gnumeric.desktop file _really_ is a
.desktop file, so I'm leaving this bug open to track the fact that this entire
fire should be removed from the gnumeric package.
I've fixed this for the devel branch its also fixed in FC-5 cvs but I don't want
to push a build there purely for this small fix. Once there is reason for a
build on FC-5 this will get picked up too.
