Please check README.fedora in xtide-common as commented
in "rpm -qi xtide".

Comment 2 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-26 08:47:35 UTC
README.fedora is in xtide-common rpm.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-29 03:33:55 UTC
a) this readme isn't pointed to anywhere in the app
b) it's still an app that installs a desktop entry for users in the menus that
*CAN NOT WORK* unless root takes some action. That's broken.

Potential solutions:

1) don't ship the desktop entry
2) ship only the US harmonics files - they're OK to distribute
3) potentially use autodownloader if it's applicable here

License issue of US part harminonics data has to
be verified. I sent Dave a mail about this issue.

I meant "David", sorry...

Comment 6 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-30 18:16:38 UTC
Bill, would you try xtide-2.9.3-2.fc8 ?

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-30 18:58:50 UTC
Seems good to me.

Comment 8 Mamoru TASAKA 2007-05-30 19:19:51 UTC
Rebuilt for devel, F-7, FE-6/5.

For devel, FE-6.5, the newest rpms will be automatically
pushed. For F-7, I will wait until how bodhi begins to work..

Closing as ERRATA. Thank you for reporting this bug.
