Description Toralf 2002-05-07 04:05:16 EDT
Description of Problem:
GNOME-1.4 has no handler for RPM files.

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

How Reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:/Actual Results:/Expected Results:
Well, I think you know what I'm talkining about.

Additional Information:
I've modified the gnorpm package in GNOMEhide so that it registers a handler for
application/x-rpm. The new/updated files will be attached. This is far from an
ideal way of handling RPMs, I think, but it's *a lot* better than telling the
user that nothing can be done.

Comment 4 Toralf 2002-05-07 04:18:16 EDT
Some more comments:

1. One thing I *really* dislike about GnomeVFS is that this kind of update is
necessary in the first place. Obviously, the old (GnomeMIME) style "open" keys
ought to have been picked up automatically.

2. I can't figure out how to tell Nautilus to pass serveral file arguments to
the same handler. Too bad, as it makes installation of packages with
dependencies even harder.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2002-05-07 08:55:43 EDT
It may be possible to address both of those comments (multiple files and 
avoiding a gnome-vfs build) but I'm not knowledgable enough about gnome-vfs to know.
Comment 6 Havoc Pennington 2002-07-06 18:33:56 EDT
Rawhide has dropped gnorpm, but we're working on a replacement tool. Should
appear in the near future.
