After uninstalling opengl-games-utils and quake3 I removed all the ioquake3 and point release files/directories I could find.
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2008-01-02 10:58:13 EST
What is the output of:
rpm -q --verify quake3

Comment 2 Philip Ashmore 2008-01-03 17:20:53 EST
# rpm -q --verify quake3
S.5.....   /usr/bin/q3ded
S.5.....   /usr/bin/quake3
S.5.....   /usr/bin/quake3-smp
# yum -y remove quake3
# yum -y install quake3
# rpm -q --verify quake3

Still no menu entries.

Shouldn't there be one under "games"?

> Shouldn't there be one under "games"?

Yes one called "Quake 3 Arena", and there is, atleast on all my testing systems.

You do not happen to have updates-testing enabled by default, do you?

To be sure, what is the output of: "rpm -ql quake3" ?
And what of: "cat /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop" ?
Comment 4 Philip Ashmore 2008-01-03 18:40:09 EST
My updates-testing repo is disabled.

# rpm -ql quake3

# cat /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Quake 3 Arena
Comment=Quake 3 Arena demo launcher, will automatically download the needed
Comment 5 Philip Ashmore 2008-01-03 19:43:11 EST
I just installed alienarena, as a test - no menu entries there either.
I checked /usr/share/applications/fedora-alienarena.desktop - it looks very
similiar to quake3's.

Either it's a problem with my installation, a KDE problem or it's a KDE
install-from-live-CD problem.
Comment 6 Hans de Goede 2008-01-04 04:15:54 EST
Looks like a KDE problem to me, as those are both perfectly valid desktop files.
Changing component to KDE.
Comment 7 Lukáš Tinkl 2008-01-04 07:57:18 EST
Try running kbuildsycoca --noincremental to see if it helps.
Comment 8 Philip Ashmore 2008-01-04 08:06:16 EST
I just copied "kbuildsycoca --noincremental" to konsole and ran it.
No change in the (lack of) quake and alienarena menus.
Comment 9 Rex Dieter 2008-01-07 12:20:49 EST
Um, just installed quake3-1.34-0.6.rc4.fc8

No menu entry.

rpm -ql quake3 | grep desktop

no /usr/share/applications/fedora-quake3.desktop on my box.

looks like a broken build/pkg to me.  Reassigning back to quake3
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-01-07 12:24:10 EST
Looks like that's by design, it appears.  

quake3-demo (or quake3-urbanterror or others) contain the .desktop files
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2008-01-07 12:25:17 EST
fwiw, installing quake3-demo worksforme.
Comment 12 Hans de Goede 2008-01-07 13:17:56 EST

Then you either have updates-testing enabled, or are doing this under
development. The quake3 quake3-demo split is recent, to allow quake3 (the
engine) to be used by other packages without dragging in the demo .desktop file
and autodownloader stuff.

See comment #4 for clear proof that this isn't the case / issue in the reporters
case. Note BTW, that the same quake3.desktop shows up in KDE's menu just fine on
my system, iow I haven't been able to reproduce this.

Anyways ping-ponging right back to KDE.
Comment 13 Rex Dieter 2008-01-07 13:37:53 EST
updates-testing yeah, I'll try to reproduce without it. (but I doubt it).

If you can provide any additional information on how to reproduce, please do so
and reopen this.
