Since when do RPM's run make? I think i missed something here...

I mean... this has todo with the install of the thumbnailers, right?
So... when you install from source... you NEED to update the
mime-database, just as much as you would need to when you install with
a package-manager.

But in the second case, isn't it something handled by the package-managers?

* Stephan might just be terribly mistaking, but i do not see the real
issue here.
