Known Issues and Workarounds in the 2.2 Release

Featured Software cannot be disabled through the user interface (Issue 1348)

The Featured Software feed cannot be disabled through the user interface. Instead, you must edit the defaults.cfg file.

Workaround: Edit the defaults.cfg file, which resides in a platform-specific location:

  • On Unix: ~/.updatetool/defaults.cfg
  • On Mac OS: ~/Library/Application Support/updatetool/defaults.cfg
  • On Windows: \Documents and Settings\dipol\Application Data\updatetool\defaults.cfg

In the defaults.cfg file, change the line:

featured.feed.url = http://updates.sfbay/atom/featuredfeed.xml

to this:

featured.feed.url

Then, restart updatetool.

"OK" button label not translated in ja locale (Issue 519)

When running updatetool in the ja locale, the "OK" button label is not translated to Japanese in all instances.

Workaround: None.

On Windows Vista, the desktop notifier is blocked from running as a startup program (Issue 721)

When you log in to Windows Vista as a user with Administrator privileges, Vista informs you that it has blocked some startup programs.

Workaround: Do one of the following:

  • When Vista informs you that it has blocked some startup programs, use the notification interface to manually unblock the notifier.
  • Use the Vista Task Scheduler to register the notifier application. See http://www.jimmah.com/vista/Applications/autostart_admin_program.aspx for instructions. When following these instructions, point the Task Scheduler action to launch the registered notifier, whichshould be located at:

    C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\Update Tool Notifier.exe

On Windows Vista, command line tools require "Run as Administrator" privilege in certain cases (Issue 721)

When running Update Center commands such as pkg and the pkg/updatetool bootstrap, the command shell you run them from must have "Run as Administrator" privilege in these situations:

  • Update Center has been installed under Program Files.
  • You are using the command line tool to manipulate an installation image under Program Files.

Due to the Vista UAC (User Account Control) feature, command shells do not by default have the "Run as Administrator" privilege even if the user you are logged in as has administrative privileges.

Workaround: Start the command shell with "Run as Administrator" privilege. Here are two ways to do so:

  • Right-click the Command Prompt icon and choose "Run as Administrator" from the context menu.
  • In the Start menu, enter cmd in the command box and then press Ctrl+Shift+Enter instead of Enter.

On UNIX systems, shell syntax errors appear when launching updatetool (Issue 582)

If you run the updatetool command from a directory whose path includes a special shell character such as "(", an error message similar to the following appears:

sh: syntax error at line 1: `(' unexpected

Workaround: None. The message is harmless and can be ignored.

On Mac OS X 10.4, the Update Tool application may fail to start (Issue 687)

If you run the updatetool command from the command line you may see an error of the form:

open[7289] LSOpenFromURLSpec() returned -10827 for
application (null) urls
file://localhost/Users/Smith/Desktop/gfv3/updatetool/bin/../UpdateTool.app/.

If you double click on the UpdateTool application from the Finder you may see the message:

You cannot open the application "UpdateTool" because it may be damaged or incomplete.

Workaround: To resolve this problem, first try running (or re-running) updatetool from the command line. If that does not work, rebuild the Launch Services database by running this command:

`locate lsregister` -kill -r -domain local -domain system -domain user

On Mac OS X, running sudo updatetool does not grant the Update Tool root privileges (Issue 768)

After using sudo to run Update Tool with elevated privileges, attempts create images in directories controlled by the root user fail, and images created in other directories are owned by the current user.

Workaround: Do not use sudo. Instead, log in as the root user before running updatetool.

On Mac OS X, trying to stop the notifier hangs the terminal window (Issue 961)

On Mac OS X, entering the following command to stop the notifier sometimes hangs the terminal window:

# updatetool --notifier --shutdown

Workaround: When this occurs, press Ctrl+C to regain control in the command window. Then, follow these instructions to stop the notifier:

  1. Launch the updatetool GUI.
  2. On the toolbar, click Preferences.
  3. In the Preferences window, click the Updates tab.
  4. On the Updates tab, uncheck Automatically check for updates.
  5. Click OK.
  6. On the File menu, choose Quit to quit the updatetool GUI.

On Solaris 10, running updatetool on the command line produces "CRITICAL" python GTK messages (Issue 709)

When you run updatetool on the command line on Solaris 10, several CRITICAL messages may appear; for example:

** (python:1678): CRITICAL **: file blueprint-draw.c: line 81: assertion `GTK_WIDGET (widget)' failed

Workaround: None. These messages are harmless and can be ignored.

On OpenSolaris 2008.11, text in online help appears to overlap (Issue 933)

In online help, some letters appear to overlap, while others appear to be spread too far apart.

This problem arises because Arial, the default font for updatetool online help, is not available on OpenSolaris 2008.11.

Workaround: Click the "A" button in the online help window and choose a different display font for the online help.

On 64-bit Ubuntu 8.10, running updatetool produces several "Gtk-Message: Failed to load module" errors (Issue 893)

When you enter updatetool in a terminal window, several messages that begin with "Gtk-Message: Failed to load module" appear. However, updatetool launches and functions normally.

Workaround: None. These messages are harmless and can be ignored.

pkg handles unknown locale with poor error message (Issue 983)

Attempts to use pkg when the locale setting is not known by the system produce a confusing error message. Usually, the message includes the phrase "unsupported locale setting"

Workaround: Before using pkg, set the locale to the UTF8 form of the locale; for example

export LANG=en_IN.utf8
