Description Michael Meissner 2001-04-06 18:23:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-ac3 i686)

Both the emacs and xemacs in the Wolverine release fail when reading
articles that have MIME headers with the message:

	Symbol's function definition is void: mailcap-parse-mailcaps

The 7.0 version of both emacs and xemacs works correctly.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select news.vmware.com as newserver.
2. go to group vmware.for-linux.configuration
3. read article 6691 by David D. Huff.
4. Please contact me if you need all of my .el files.	

Actual Results:  You get the error message about not being able to find
mail-parse-mailcaps, even if you explicitly load in the file from the gnus

Expected Results:  You should get the article instead of an error message.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-04-06 18:36:09 UTC
This has been fixed, in semi-1.13.7-9 (for Emacs) and in xemacs-21.1.14-10.

The issue was the semi includes it's own mailcap file, not compatible with the
standard one. It has since been renamed.
