Description James Cassell 2009-10-22 16:37:34 EDT
Description of problem:
When eclipse is installed on Fedora 12 (currently rawhide,) two eclipse icons are shown in "Applications -> Programming"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install eclipse
2. go to open eclipse from Applications->Programming
3. be confused as to which you should pick
Actual results:
There are two Eclipse links in Applications->Programming

Expected results:
there should be only one link to Eclipse from Applications->Programming

Additional info:
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -ql eclipse-platform|grep .desktop

this isn't so much of a functional problem as much as it is a user confusion problem  (I certainly was confused)
Comment 1 Alexander Kurtakov 2009-10-23 06:58:18 EDT
Thanks for the report. It is fixed in rawhide. I don't consider this critical enough for requesting releng to tag new build and I would also like to add some ppc64 fixes which are not quite ready yet. 
So this will be pushed as an update once Fedora 12 is out.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
