|Platform||core2duo, openSUSE 11.1||OS||Linux||OS Version||22.214.171.124-rt21|
|Summary||0002741: installation fails: update-mime-database does not work if directory does not exist|
|Description||prefix is /usr/local|
when you run "sudo scons install", you get this error message:
scons: Building targets ...
update-mime-database: I don't have write permission on /usr/local/share/mime.
Try rerunning me as root.
the actual reason is that /usr/local/share/mime does not exist. a workaround is to symlink it to /usr/share/mime, but ardour should detect this. plus an error here should not abort the actual installation of the ardour2 binary.
should be a blocker for 2.8.1 imho.
|Steps To Reproduce||sudo scons install|
(where PREFIX=/usr/local and your distro does not have /usr/local/share/mime)

||should have noted that you need to enable FREEDESKTOP=1 to trigger this issue|
||i'm more likely to just disable the FREEDESKTOP option, to be honest. we handle this very differently in 3.0, and for 2.X, integration with the desktop is best left for distros.|
