Mark /etc/sysconfig/nspluginwrapper as a config file in the rpm
Last modified: 2008-04-02 14:16:08 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):
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
Config file is reset
Config file should be left as is.
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
Examples: gecko-mediaplayer* and mplayerplug-in*
Or just add those to the don't wrap rule.
added to nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.5-26.fc9
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 18.104.22.168. When the
wrapper is installed, the plugins silently fail to work.
Uninstalling nspluginwrapper fixes all of these issues.
