beagle-thunderbird missing beagle.xpi
Last modified: 2008-07-27 13:42:26 EDT
Description of problem:
Beagle does not index the thunderbird email since the beagle.xpi is missing.
From the build in the koji. We are just compiling it but not installing it.
make: Entering directory
zip -q9 beagle.xpi chrome.manifest install.rdf chrome/beagle.jar
make: Leaving directory
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
No thunderbird mail getting index.
Beagle should index the thunderbird emails.
I will look into this, I have a sneaking idea that this requires the firefox
plugin which can't be used because it doesn't support the FF3 API.
thunderbird+beagle works fine in Ubuntu(Hardy)
I don't think you need to worry about FF3 API -- thunderbird is staying at
version 2 for this release, I'm pretty sure.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
So, basically, email indexing and searching in thunderbird doesn't work at all,
and this is low priority? How can that be?
And why does the beagle-thunderbird RPM currently in Rawhide contain
/usr/lib/beagle/Backends/ThunderbirdBackends.dll.mdb, both of which are in the
beagle RPM as well, when I believe that what it *should* contain is the
thunderbird extension files?
Thanks for the reminder somehow I completely missed this bug.
The good news are: I have fixed it. ;)
beagle-0.3.7-5.fc9 and beagle-0.3.8-2.fc10 should hit updates-testing / rawhide
soon. Please let me know if they work for you or not.
