Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468705
comet tail in solar plugin is oriented tangentially it should be radial
Last modified: 2009-12-18 01:39:52 EST
Description of problem:
plymouth plugin solar comet tail points tangentially to the orbit of the comet
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. configure solar plugin
2. update initrd
comet tail is tangential
comet tail radial
I thought this might crop up. The problem is that although incorrect it looked a bit weird with the tail sticking out radially. To fix it the comet image just needs to be rotated 90deg counter clockwise. Perhaps we might be better without the comet at all.
What do you think Ray?
I don't have a super strong opinion either way.
I guess it might look more natural turned if it were slightly animated with particulates flying out of the tail.
A couple of people have come up to me and asked about it, so I think for F10 we should either drop the comet or make it look natural turned.
(putting on target list for GA, but it could always get changed in an update post-GA)
*** Bug 470821 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
There was a small thread about this upstream here:
Charlie made in animated, but it still looked unnatural in it's acurate orientation.
Right now I think we're going to go with the wrong way, but we might remove the comet entirely, if there is significant opposition.
So after talking with Charlie about this, we came the conclusion it's probably better to just drop the comet for now.
We might be able to come up with a better solution later.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.
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 10'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 10 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:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
