Change History

  Changed 4 years ago by skierpage

The same thing happened to me after olpc-update --usb to os851. I restarted into the new version, and ran Software update which offered to update a lot of activities, some new. I unchecked Wikipedia and WikipediaEN to save space and updated the rest. This worked and ~/Activities has the new and improved activities, but Home screen Favorites (ring) view doesn't show the new activities like Stop Watch and Words, and List view doesn't show them and shows the old versions and dates for activities like Browse.

I downloaded a new activity GeoQuiz, and that showed up in the Home screen without triggering an update of the rest.

I looked in shell.log and aside from lots of MANIFEST warnings I noticed a traceback from a *collection*, Bible-en.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/bitfrost/update/actinfo.py", line 186, in get_libraries
    l = libbun.ContentBundle(path)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sugar/bundle/contentbundle.py", line 62, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sugar/bundle/contentbundle.py", line 163, in _parse_info
    'bundle_class' % self._path)
MalformedBundleException: Content bundle /home/olpc/Library/bible-en must specify either global_name or bundle_class

I've repaired that error but don't know how to trigger rebuilding the Home screen's activity list.

I suspect the Home screen will update if and when I restart Sugar.

skierpage, that's a different issue, please open a new ticket. Your system is choking on a now-invalid bundle. But this specific bug (of version numbers not updating) happens even when all installed bundles are valid.

Scratch that. Same bug.

(the malformed bundle thing is already handled gracefully, just the fact that an exception was logged was confusing me)

bitfrost fix for review

  Changed 4 years ago by dsd

  • priority changed from low to normal
  • next_action changed from reproduce to review
  • milestone changed from Not Triaged to 10.1.2

Bumping the priority as the same bug results in new activities not appearing until sugar is restarted. Marked for 10.1.2 as this is a regression.

Fix attached, please review.

  • next_action changed from review to package

Tested on XO-1 build os851, applied patch manually, restarted Sugar, used Software update to install an activity not previously installed, after this the activities were now correctly shown in home view in favorites view (F3, ctrl-1) and list view (F3, ctrl-2) without requiring a restart.
