We should implement a zenity dialog for people who are running tracker

Upstream bug:


As per ATN-30, we should implement a zenity dialog (like we do for people with mode 777 homedirs) that checks for EnableIndexing?=true in ~/.config/tracker/tracker.cfg. It should say something like "You currently have the Tracker indexer enabled. This is known to break AFS. You can disable it by doing $foo".

$foo can either be something like "athrun consult fix-tracker", or we could decide that the number is small enough we should point them at a stock answer on how to edit the file instead.

I note we currently have /etc/X11/Xsession.d/97debathena-homedir-mode. Rather than having a separate script, would it be better to lump these all together in something like debathena-warn-users or something?

Done. The relevant stuff is in /mit/jdreed/debathena/debathena-xsession (along with the fix for ticket #148)

The copy of fix-tracker in the consult locker is wrong. A better copy is in the RW volume, and will make it into the RO locker on Thurs 3/26.

  • Keywords proposed added

Committed in r23680. Uploaded to -proposed.

I'll move it to production when I get confirmation that the package does the right thing both when tracker is enabled and when it's disabled.
