Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 247222
Missing MIME type for .ico files
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
The MIME type for files of type image/vnd.microsoft.icon (standard extension
.ico) is not defined in the standard file /etc/mime.types . This file format is
a standard format accepted by IANA, as described at
Since this is an IANA defined file type, please add this definition to the
standard mime.types file.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put an icon file in the DocumentRoot directory of your apache web server
2. With firefox, go to http://localhost/favicon.ico
Garbled text appears in the web browser
An icon appears in the web browser
Note: This also needs to be done for other supported platforms/releases,
including RHEL 5. However, I will not open a separate report for each (unless
you request it).
Fixed in mailcap-2.1.25-1.fc8. Thanks.
As for RHEL5, please contact Red Hat Support to get it escalated.
