Description Felix Lee 2000-11-18 07:20:27 UTC
netscape-4.76 rpm now includes /usr/share/pixmaps/netscape.png , which is
also in the gnome-core rpm.  this is fine for redhat-only installations,
because it's an identical file.

however, helix gnome supplies different pixmaps, so if you have helix
installed, netscape-4.76 fails to install cleanly.  (or vice-versa)

I don't see a good fix for this problem that doesn't involve changing rpm. 
perhaps marking netscape.png as %config(noreplace) is good enough, but this
seems to be stretching the idea of a config file a bit.  (it might need to
be applied to everything in /usr/share/pixmaps .)

netscape.png, ideally, shouldn't be in gnome-core.

Alternatively, if a package contains 'Icon: something' in its desktop
entry, do we really want to make the package require whatever provides
that icon (because making netscape require gnome-core would be silly.)
