versin 2.0.8

Post by jazcyk » Sat Sep 13, 2008 1:48 pm

1) I experienced severe difficulties unpacking this build. Windows Vista unzipper crashed repeatedly and Filzip finally succeeded in 4th try (it would not unpack the tarball at all). Were the archives built on Mac (I ask this because I had similar problems wiht zip archives distributed by MySQL, where I was told they were built on Mac)? Please at least test unpacking on Windows (with the built in Windows tool)!


2) Is it intentional that the archive ships with version control info (.svn folders and scripts)? I think it should not and I never saw it before!

export ..

As regards 2) I think you should use SVN 'export' command.

FTP upload takes considerable more time with all those small SVN-related files. And manually deleting them all is also annoying!

Hi,

it was my first built on MacOS X, 2.0.9 will be better. :-)

Hi,

the SVN export script is fixed in SVN.

unpacking

Post by jazcyk » Fri Oct 17, 2008 9:49 pm

Unpacking the zip-archive on Vista is still a big problem with Vista built in zip program (PMF 2.09)! Windows Explorer crashes repeatedly at 40%. Please have the ZIP's built on Windows!

btw: why is it packaged recursively (folder inside folder inside folder)? I managed to unzip with Filzip program, but only after unpacking the 'inner folder' (phpmyfaq) only. Unpacking the 'outer folder' (phpmyfaq-2.0.9) also gets stuck here!

Anybody else having such problems?

Hi,

I don't have a Vista license. I don't have any problems on Windows XP Home and Professional.

I'll check my package script once again.

Best regards
