Description Daniel McNamara 2009-04-22 07:13:37 EDT
Description of problem:

Original versions of gallery2 in worked as expected. Upgrade to latest version (gallery2-2.3-5.fc11) caused gallery2 to cease operation (you can't run the upgrade either). To fully test a fresh install was done. Configuration screens will work but upon completion gallery2 fails in the same manner

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install gallery2 in Fedora 11 beta
2. Run through setup (this should work) - During install a warning will be shown that gallery2 is failing an intergretity check with the jar and php-Smarty files being missing.
3. At the end of setup gallery2 will show only blank output
Actual results:

Gallery2 failing due to errors

Expected results:

Shiny gallery stuff!

Additional info:

Appears related to the changes implemented for BZ 484240 - from the HTTP error logs:

Random additional note: BZ 464566 referenced in the changelog appears incorrect. Possibly meant to be BZ 484566 ?

I'm not exactly sure how I got into this state, but this morning after the gallery2-2.3-7.fc10.noarch upgrade was installed via yum updates, I did not have a "smarty" link or directory in /usr/share/gallery2/modules.

Force re-installing the rpm did not fix it because the logic to create the symlink looks like

  if [ -d /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty ]; then
    rm -rf /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty
    ln -s ../../php/Smarty /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty

Since the directory did not exist, no symlink was created.

Seeing the logic, I was able to create the symlink and am off and running, but thought I should report this for posterity and others trying to resolve this problem.

Comment 5 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-04-28 12:18:21 EDT
I see the flaw, I should move the link creation out of the loop.
Comment 6 David L. Crow 2009-04-28 12:23:00 EDT
Be careful.  If the symlink already exists and the ln command currently in the script is run again, a symlink will get created in the link destination (i.e. /usr/share/php/Smarty).
Comment 7 Gwyn Ciesla 2009-04-28 12:45:35 EDT
New version I'm building is the following:

#symlink to system smarty
if [ -d /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty ]; then
  rm -rf /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty
if [ ! -e /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty ]; then   
  ln -s ../../php/Smarty /usr/share/gallery2/lib/smarty

This should prevent that eventuality.
