Package name shared-mime-info
Date May 24th, 2007
Advisory ID MDKA-2007:050
Affected versions 2007.1
Synopsis Updated shared-mime-infopackages correct ISO file association

Problem Description

A misconfiguration in the default application priorities was causing
file-roller (an archive manager) to be used by default for ISO
image files, instead of nautilus-cd-burner, for the GNOME desktop
environment. This bug has been fixed with an updated shared-mime-info
package, which also contains additional file types.
