The mojave variable "thornlist" cannot deal with absolute path names; update repo fails then...

Create issue
Issue #730 closed
anonymous created an issue

Using Eclispe (indigo classic), I have tried to build with a new thornlist.

Therefore I have entered the following name in

mojave -> edit variables

/home/alibeck/Cactus-Simfact2-NewRepos-save/Cactus/test-ali.th

Staring then "update repo"

gives me:

[1m[31mError: [0mCould not open Cactus//home/alibeck/Cactus-Simfact2-NewRepos-save/Cactus/test-ali.th

So mojave tries to open a file called

Cactus//home/alibeck/Cactus-Simfact2-NewRepos-save/Cactus/test-ali.th

instead of

/home/alibeck/Cactus-Simfact2-NewRepos-save/Cactus/test-ali.th

    This is the most serious ticket open, and has been open for seven months. Is Mojave a dead project? Or is this ticket's priority wrong? Or has this issue already been addressed?

    From the ticket description, it looks like there is a trivial workaround, so I don't see how it could be a "blocker". I suggest that it be demoted to "minor".

    Mojave is a live project, but somehow we've not gotten into the spirit of using Trac. Will look into it.

    If the user opens the .mojave.xml file inside the Cactus source tree in the project, the parameter that following the --update is currently written as Cactus/ and if you delete the Cactus/ then this option would work.

    If the user opens the .mojave.xml file inside the Cactus source tree in the project, the parameter that following the --update is currently written as Cactus/ and if you delete the Cactus/ then this option would work. For the future checkouts, I will rewrite the .mojave.xml file. I don't have permission to rewrite the file. I will request Steve to change the file.
