RPM Odin 0.7.1 doesn't work

Reported by: David McKenna Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: general enhancement
Component: odin Version:
Severity: low Keywords:


Uninstalled the last Odin using Warpin, then installed 0.7.1 using YUM INSTALL LIBODIN from the netlabs-exp repository. Install went fine, but both Flash and Java don't work now.

I found an entry in OS2.INI 'KLIBC' that contains the keyword 'OdinPath?' that was set to the old Warpin entered path. I changed that to 'C:\usr\lib' and now Odin based stuff works.

Thanks for testing (the unannounced release -). The presence of OdinPath? in OS2.INI means that the WarpIn? de-installation procedure failed on your side (it is supposed to delete this key); we can't do anything about that from RPM.

However, this key is used by other software (to locate Odin I suppose), not by Odin itself. Can you tell me what software didn't work until you fixed? And also, does it work if you remove "OdinPath?" completely?

At least, Java (OpenJDK) works well w/o OdinPath? in OS2.INI at all.

I noticed this with Flash (preview 2) - it did not work in SeaMonkey? 2.3 until I changed the key to c:\usr\lib. I tried removing the key altogether, and still Flash would not work. I'll try and test some other things...

I changed the RPMs so that when libodin is installed, a proper OdinPath? value is written to OS2.INI. Please update (the new packages version 0.7.1-2 are in netlabs-rel already). Note that you will have to re-install the odin-doc package (if you have it installed) to re-create WPS objects for the documentation.

Hmmm... when I try YUM UPDATE I don't get anything...

You probably need to run "yum clean metadata" before "yum update" to pick up the latest metadata from the repository right now.
