Missing people folder in home folder in nightly builds

In the current nightly builds there is the people folder missing. But this is not the real problem. The problem is that, if you create a people folder in the home folder you need to reboot after this, otherwise all files in the home folder are out of index.

To rebuild: create people folder in a new nightly installation, create a NEW people file in the people folder, try to find it with a query

Works correctly here, I'm not sure I understand the problem. Are you booting the nightly off a CD, a USB stick, or what?

comment:2 by Robert S., 8 years ago

No, i installed a new nightlybuild to my harddrive from a usb stick. Than I boot the new installed nightlybuild... and than i create the people folder, than i create a people file in the people folder and than the new people file is not in the index and can not be found with a BQuery.

That is the BQuery i use:

BVolumeRoster *volumes = new BVolumeRoster();

BVolume *volume = new BVolume(); while(volumes->GetNextVolume(volume) == B_NO_ERROR) {

BQuery *mContactQuery = new BQuery();


mContactQuery->SetTarget(*messengerQueryLooper); BString predicate("((META:name==*)&&(BEOS:TYPE==\"application/x-person\"))"); mContactQuery->SetPredicate(predicate.String());

status_t res = mContactQuery->Fetch(); if(res == B_OK) {

entry_ref ref; while (mContactQuery->GetNextRef(&ref) == B_OK) {

/*some code ;)*/

Out of curiosity, does the same problem arise if you use Tracker to query for it? I can't reproduce this at all. Also, if you run lsindex, what's the output?

comment:5 by anevilyak, 8 years ago

The sample code works as expected over here. Have you tried running checkfs on that volume?

comment:6 by Robert S., 8 years ago


i didn't tried it with the tracker. I will do it tomorrow. I tested it with some installations on diffrent computers and diffrent nightlybuilds (in virtual machines and real hardware) i could reproduce it on every system. I will try it tomorrow on a new installation again and will post the output of lsindex.

EDIT: maybe interessting as well, after creating the people folder it has a standard folder icon and not the "people folder icon" it gets the "people folder icon" just after a reboot.

Resolution: invalid

After further diagnosis over IRC, problem appears to be in user app's code. Closing as invalid.
