Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 195621
Patch turns off *all* debugging info with no way to turn it back on
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
There is a patch in the FC5 RPM, named "beagle-0.2.1-spew.patch" which hardcodes
the debug level of Beagle:
--- beagle-0.2.1/beagled/BeagleDaemon.cs.spew 2006-02-24 01:26:56.000000000 -0500
+++ beagle-0.2.1/beagled/BeagleDaemon.cs 2006-02-24 01:28:44.000000000 -0500

// FIXME: We always turn on full
debugging output! We are still
// debugging this code, after all...
//arg_debug ? LogLevel.Debug :
I can understand dialing the otherwise very verbose output down, but why not
uncomment the line immediately above this one? As a result, it is basically
impossible to debug any runtime issues users encounter because the log level
cannot be changed in the direction of verbosity. (See
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=335819 for an irritating
back-and-forth.) Please fix this for the next release.
Seems to have been applied to fix bug 182660, which (ironically) just suppressed
real error messages/bugs.
So i had a look at fixing this tonight, but our build system is having a hissy fit
This is now released as 0.2.6-1.fc5.2
