Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 179240
vice not present in distribution
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
Description of problem:
vice is not present in the current Fedora Extras 4, while it was before.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Actual available vice is 1.19.
Actually this is not really a bug report or enhancement request,
I was just wondering why vice disappeared from the repository,
while it is still present in the package list of bugzilla.
Vice was considered legally problematic for FE because it contains Commodore ROM
images. It could be packaged for FE if the ROM's were removed but then the
package would not work out of the box making it just look broken so it's better
to not offer it in the first place.
