The current 2.1.3-r1 version of kdevelop cannot build a search database.
Kdevelop Setup->Documentation->Options->Create search database->Create
Index enginge = ht://dig
yields the following error message:
DB2 problem...: /usr/kde/3/share/apps/kdevelop/htdig/db/db.docdb: Permission denied
htdig: Unable to open/create document database
htmerge: Unable to create temporary word file
Looks like a permission problem.The directory
/usr/kde/3/share/apps/kdevelop/htdig/db is not writable by the user that wants
to create the search database.
kdevelop-3.0_alpha2 is out, where this should be fixed. please test
hmm, i don't like the idea to give all users access to $KDEDIR/share/apps/kdevelop/htdig/db/.
but maybe this would be the best solution? or having a search database in
~/.kde/share/apps/kdevelop/htdig. would be much better. any opinions?
Well, if you can manage it, it'd be best for the ebuild to create a world-readable database after
installing. (This is for the static docs installed by the ebuilds right?)
Hannes - so what's the status of this? Is it fixed in 3.x? If so we needn't worry extremely
about 2.x, and can close this as WONTFIX...
(How long have I been saying 'I wish gideon would get stable already'?)
kdevelop-3.0_alpha* search database works. closing as wontfix.
