i ran into a number of problems when trying to set up a prelude-manager under a different profile name. some options cause problems or must be used differently than described.

1. the usage of prelude-manager says -prelude --profile=ARG but that does not work. Removing the =_ and writing _--prelude --profile ARG works ok.
2. using --config=ARG gives a warning: Invalid option - "config" (0). but the specified config-file seems to be used anyway.
3. using two options from the --prelude subcategory without the category gives a segfault. adding another --prelude (i.e. saying --prelude --profile foo --prelude --heartbeat-interval=60 instead of --prelude --profile foo --heartbeat-interval=60 works ok). for the other categories, you can give multiple categroy-options per category.
4. --prelude --profile foo (and maybe others) only works if specified before -d

some of this behaviour may be intended, but at least it should be documented...

there could be more issues with the command-line option handling. i did not test this systematically. these are just the ones i ran into...

this was done with prelude-manager- and libprelude-

  • Status changed from New to Assigned

Reword description for readability. Reword summary since this is not prelude-manager specific.

#2 Updated by Yoann VANDOORSELAERE over 16 years ago

Please try changeset r8171, which should fix point 1 and 3. I am not able to reproduce point 4, can you confirm it happen with the patch applied ? Point 2 will be a separate fix.

  • Status changed from Assigned to Closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

Marking as closed. Please open a separate ticket for point 4 if you are still able to reproduce it with r8171 applied.
