Behaviour of tce-load for already downloaded extensions
« on: March 17, 2010, 08:30:30 PM »
I'm not sure if the following is the intended behaviour of tce-load or if it might be a bug: If an extension has been downloaded, but not installed at an earlier point in time. Another attempt is made to download and install the extension later. The result is that one sees a warning message about the download, but no installation takes place (even though all pre-conditions should be fulfilled). Example:
    tc@box:~$ tce-load -w bvi
    Connecting to (
    bvi.tcz              100% |*******************************| 36864  --:--:-- ETA
    bvi.tcz: OK
    bvi successful.
    tc@box:~$ tce-load -wi bvi
    bvi is already downloaded!

One can obviously install the extension by specifying the file directly:
    tc@box:~$ tce-load -i `cat /opt/.tce_dir`/optional/bvi.tcz
    bvi successful.

I'm not sure whether this is really necessary, as I was actually expecting for the installation to proceed when I specified tce-load -wi ....
