#11766 assigned bug

New filetype only available after reboot

Description

This is hrev48693.

After installing a package that provides a new filetype, that new MIME is only available after a reboot. For example, I installed "Remember" (available thru haikuports) which installs a new type $dataDir/mime_db/text/x-event.

These added MIME types don't have a BEOS:TYPE set as "application/x-vnd.Be-meta-mime" as the other MIME types that come with the system. Problem?

That's a known issue and also an item on the package management TODO list.

Another example is "QuickRes" installable from HaikuDepot. It also only appears in the FileTypes prefs' "Application types" and Tracker's "Open with..." menu after a reboot.
