8.218. shared-mime-info

Updated shared-mime-info packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The shared-mime-info packages contain the core database of common types. Programs and desktops consult the MIME database to determine the correct MIME type for a file.

Bug Fix

Due to optimizations performed by the Anaconda installer, the glib2 packages, which the shared-mime-info packages depend on, were not yet installed when the shared-mime-info's post-installation script was run. As a consequence, a harmless error message was reported. This update adds an explicit dependency on glib2 for the post-installation script to only run after the glib2 packages have been installed, and the errors no longer occur in the described situation.
Users of shared-mime-info are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
