Description Christian Krause 2008-05-11 04:50:53 EDT
Description of problem:
the latest update of kdebase4 contains a desktop file which is empty:
rpm -qlv kdebase4 |grep konquerorsu
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root                0 Apr 22 21:44

This results in errors when updating the desktop-database (which happens quite
often during updating):
/usr/bin/update-desktop-database /usr/share/applications
Could not parse file '/usr/share/applications/kde4/konquerorsu.desktop': File is

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 1 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-11 05:00:11 EDT
Confirmed. The offending file is still present in kdebase4-4.0.4-1.fc8 in 
Comment 2 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-11 05:06:00 EDT
The problem is this specfile 

# konquerorsu only show in KDE
echo OnlyShowIn=KDE; 
>> %{buildroot}%{_kde4_datadir}/applications/kde4/konquerorsu.desktop

which should only be there for F9+, and which is also broken there because the 
semicolon is not quoted, so this appends absolutely nothing (the output of the 
empty command) to konquerorsu.desktop.
Comment 3 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-11 05:18:26 EDT
Fixed in 4.0.4-2.fc9 and 4.0.72-2.fc10.
Comment 4 Kevin Kofler 2008-05-11 05:19:10 EDT
Uh, actually that's the other one (the unquoted semicolon), this one is fixed 
in 4.0.4-2.fc7 and 4.0.4-2.fc8 of course. :-)
