Description of problem:
FC4 has been out for a year, and I'm surprised no one has noticed this bug. gkrellm does not find plugins with the x86_64 architecture. It is looking in the wrong directory.
To work around this problem:
ln -s ../lib64/gkrellm2/
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gkrellm and gkrellm-wireless for x86_64
2. Run gkrellm and select Configure...
3. wifi plugin is missing
Actual Results: plugins not found
Expected Results: plugins found
gkrellm thinks plugins are located in /usr/lib/gkrellm2/plugins/
gkrellm packages are installed in /usr/lib64/gkrellm2/plugins/
I can confirm this bug, as I'm sure anyone with x86_64 FC4 can; is this fixed or
being worked on in FC5?
FC5 works, I've tested it with the wireless monitor on x86_64
