Description (last modified by scottmc)

If you find any problems with OptionalPackages for alpha3 add a comment to this tracking ticket.

Original Summary: Expander no longer extracts xz archives - wrong path for tar (OptionalPackages)

Using r1a3-rc-hrev41594.

Expander is no longer able to preview or extract *.xz archives, *.zip archives can be extracted. Used to work with r1a3-rc-hrev41552.

My guess: One of the OptionalPackages changed for Alpha 3 (rc hrev41594) is tar. "tar" is now stored in /boot/common/bin/bin (current alpha3) instead of /boot/common/bin (pre-alpha3) and thus not found by expander. When moving tar to /boot/common/bin everything works again.

This should be changed for alpha 3.

Also subversion was built without the patch that cleans up it's directories, and expat was built with incorrect mandir setting, these have been updated now.

Looks like tar, subversion and expat need to be fixed and rebuilt. Perhaps more? If you spot any of the newly rebuilt OptionalPackages not working as expected, post a comment on this ticket. Same goes for the OptionalLibPackages which will get the first wave for rebuilds today.

fixed expat and subversion in hrev41605.

Does the needed clean-up of subversion's directories refer to having - at the moment - a directory /boot/home/.subversion (reminds me of linux) instead of /boot/home/config/settings/subversion (more haiku-like)?

Replying to taos:

Correct, that's how I noticed it. I cleaned that up last year, but when updating to 1.6.15 forgot to update the patch as well. It's fixed now.

Also tar is now fixed in hrev41606.

Let's keep this ticket open as a tracking ticket until all of the OptionalPackages and OptionalLibPackages have been rebuilts for alpha3 and checked for issues. Reports any new issues here.
