Description jeramy smith 2002-07-15 04:14:40 UTC
Description of Problem:
The linked patch adds full working fluxbox support to redhat switchdesk.
There are many redhat/fluxbox users and I troll my fluxbox rpms in #redhat on
OPN as much as I can. I have already integrated gdm/kdm support and redhat menu
support but to integrate more I will need this small patch to go upstream.

You didn't attach the patch to the bug report, and the URL you supplied
contains nothing but a 404 error, and a cute girl with an iBook.  So
I can't evaluate this for inclusion right now.

Closing bug WONTFIX.  Feel free to attach the patch to the bug report
if you still have it using the file attachment link below and I will
look at it and consider it.  No promises however.

took away the file from the URL and searched around - he just forgot a portion 
of the URL (or added that subdir later)


I'll attach so it won't matter :)

We're going to be removing switchdesk from the distribution as both
KDM and GDM have a method of performing roughly the same task so
switchdesk is kind of redundant even if the featureset doesn't match
100% with what gdm/kdm does.  Most users just use the default anyway,
and it's easy to configure with kdm/gdm.  Those using other mechanisms
generally customize their systems more heavily and know what they're
doing enough to make the required configuration changes by hand without
much trouble.

Closing WONTFIX under obsoletion.
