Description Kevin DeKorte 2008-03-11 09:31:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Every time a new version of nspluginwrapper comes out it erases the changes I
have made to /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper. Please stop it from doing that

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install nspluginwrapper
2. Make changes to /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper
3. Upgrade nspluginwrapper
4. Changes are gone and not even an .rpmold file is around

Actual results:
Config file is reset

Expected results:
Config file should be left as is.

Additional info:

I have to make changes to this file, cause the wrapper does the wrong thing to a
lot of plugins. 32bit plugins should not be wrapped on a 32bit platform and
64bit plugins should not be wrapped on 64 bit machines. The wrapping breaks
javascript functionality and in some cases causes plugins not to work.

Examples: gecko-mediaplayer* and mplayerplug-in*

Or just add those to the don't wrap rule.

Comment 2 Bill Adams 2008-04-02 14:16:08 EDT
As a side note, nspluginwrapper conflicts with flash + gecko-mediaplayer. That
is to say that by default, nspluginwrapper should probably exclude
libflashplayer.*,  gecko-mediaplayer* (no dot), nppdf.* (Adobe Reader), and
npica.* (Citrix ICA Client). The problem started with Firefox When the
wrapper is installed, the plugins silently fail to work.

Uninstalling nspluginwrapper fixes all of these issues.
