Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 434623
tastymenu is a Kicker applet and thus useless on Fedora 9
Last modified: 2009-06-09 20:26:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Tasty Menu is a Kicker applet, which means it is entirely useless in a KDE 4
environment as Fedora 9 is providing. There is no Kicker in Fedora 9 anymore.
I don't know how it gets along without using the Kicker library (which is no
longer available), so it wasn't caught in the broken dependency checks, but
the package is actually non-functional in Fedora 9 and should be retired for
Fedora 9 or later by following the procedure described at:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Can you please follow the
The package should be marked dead.package and blocked from at least dist-f9
(f9-beta too if possible).
Okay, I think I've got it. I don't have the ability to modify the wiki, though.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
This has been blocked from Fedora 11 and higher, we can't remove it from the F9 and F10 release repos.
