#95 closed defect (fixed)

Some bundles install correctly using sugar-install-bundle but not through the Journal

Bug Status:


The bundle at

installs and runs perfectly using the sugar-install-bundle command at the Terminal, but fails to install or run when launched from the Journal. The Journal only unpacks the bundle partially. For example, it unpacks the contents of ACBLSCOR.activity/, but not ACBLSCOR.activity/activity/.

It is worth noting that this bundle was not created using bundlebuilder. Bundlebuilder does not support symlinks, and I need correct handling of symlinks inside this bundle. Therefore, the bundle is created by the "" script included in the .xo.

Until this is fixed, I have to tell users to install this using wget and sugar-install-bundle, because they cannot use Browse and the Journal.

Do you mean #165? Please state what version you are using.

The installation has been fixed with #165. Uninstalling your activity does not work, though.

The file it chokes is a broken symbolic link.
