Description Ajay Sharma 2003-12-10 08:36:37 UTC
when you start up Azureus (the current version in portage) it prompts you to update to the latest version.  So I clicked "finish" to download the update and relaunch Azureus.  Problem is that the new version is saved into ~/.azureus/Azureus-new.jar and is never actually copied over to /opt/azureus/Azureus2.jar.  So when I restart azureus I get the prompt again.

I've tried running azureus as root just to make sure it's not a permission problem (obviously everyone can't write to /opt...) but the problem persists.

Also, I "forced" the upgrade by copying the downloaded version to /opt/azureus and then recieved this error when starting it up:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/gudy/azureus2/ui/common/Main

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge azureus
2. start azureus
3. when prompted to download latest version, click 'finish'
4. azuerus will download a new version and quit (when it should've restarted)
5. when you manually restart it, you'll get the familiar prompt to update to the latest version.
Actual Results:  
azureus downloaded the update into ~/.azureus but didn't actually copy it over
to /opt/azureus.

Expected Results:  
When I restart after the update I should be running the latest version but I'm
still running the older one.

I'd prefer a new ebuild over using the 'auto update' thing they have installed
to be honest....   thanks everyone!

Comment 1 Luke-Jr 2003-12-10 14:54:15 UTC
Because this is a binary package, what I can do with it is limited. This prevents modifying the upgrade process to use Portage. I *was* able to disable the upgrade itself by editing a shell script Azureus uses. Due to an upstream bug in the original script, it didn't work as I intended with non-root running it. -r1 has this fixed and will/should display an informative message. Upgrading the ebuild requires significant changes, so I will not be able to do it until my finals are over (2 weeks).

about which package are you talking ?

emerge azureus -s
[ Results for search key : azureus ]
[ Applications found : 0 ]
Comment 3 Ajay Sharma 2004-01-03 04:03:29 UTC
well, it was in portage at one given time...  but I guess it has since been removed.  

I'm running the latest version outside of portage anyway, so I don't really know what to do with this bug anymore...
Comment 4 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-04 20:52:02 UTC
azureus has been removed from portage with the comment:

"removing, for more info ask seemant"

Assigning to seemant for clairification.
Comment 5 Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-09 08:33:40 UTC
java folks, can you add this package into portage
Comment 6 Karl Trygve Kalleberg (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-05-28 05:19:06 UTC is in the tree. I think this matter is no longer valid.
