Description Chris Weyl 2006-11-16 12:14:43 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to use File::MimeInfo in an environment where the shared-mime-info
package is unavailable yields an error message:

"WARNING: You don't seem to have a mime-info database.
The shared-mime-info package is available from

(see, e.g., bug 215865)

Add an explicit requires: shared-mime-info to perl-File-MimeInfo.
Comment 1 Patrice Dumas 2006-11-16 12:39:32 EST
Indeed, perl-MimeIinfo is useless without shared-mime-info!

Fixed in 0.13-3
