For those of you aggravated by the problem where the drawer does not work
(works initially but then stops ... especially after re-login), I have
created a patch. The problem results in the launcher buttons in the drawer
not working. Given the current state of FC 1, fixing this problem has a zero
chance before general availability.
This refers to problems:
The problem has been fixed upstream (around 16 Sep) and the patch is attached
to 104492. This patch was created by a diff comparing button-widget.c in the
gnome-panel-2.4.0-3 tarball against that available from the cvs as of today.
The patch picks up three additional fixes in the cvs which are pretty much
restricted to button-widget.c or just make some simple changes to text.
I have built some rpms based on this patch and test it -- it appears to fix
the problem. As with other such limited testing of code, your milage may
Build your own update from the patch in bugzilla or the prebuilt rpms are
available via anonymous ftp at ftp://czarc.net/pub/
and are named:
These packages will not be there forever but should be around for at least a
couple of weeks.
