this is a mail I sent on the wrong smallwiki mailing-list a few weeks
I finally got the time to install Pier. The main goal is not to have
a rock stable wiki (I would have used SmallWiki for that), but rather
to test Pier.
I installed Pier from scratch, to have the latest versions. (I
followed instructions given on http://smallwiki.unibe.ch/smallwiki/
pier/installationofpier/). As I needed the authentication features, I
installed the Pier-Security too.
The versions I used are:
At the moment, I have 3 kernels running. I noted a few problems :
- Pier-Security: I added users, groups without problem. Then I
disabled the View Command for "Other" users.
The problem is, disabling view doesn't hide contents. ie: "Other"
users can still view the first page of the wiki (even if the links
are grayed), the tree contents, and worst, if they type the address
directly, they can view all the pages of the wiki. (this problem was
already reported by Cédrick Béler, and I fixed it quick&dirty by
modifying PRContentsWidget and PRTreeWidget to only display content
when context isValid)
Another thing, even after fixing the first problem, when I click on
Login, the context becomes valid, and the tree contents are displayed.
- When PRFilePersistency is instanced, it doesn't actually create
the log file. So when using the Log or Changes commands before saving
anything, I get a FileDoesNotExistException.
- When a page is deleted, when I use Changes or Log Commands, I get
an UndefinedObject error. If I manually delete the log, the problem
- Would be interesting to have a way to change the default log file
name (I added this in my image)
- mutex: I got a strange problem. Suddenly, one of the 3 kernels
stopped accepting logins. The page just froze when I tried to login.
I found that something went wrong with a process in this kernel's
mutex. I tried to play with the blocked process, sending resume and
terminate messages, but I probably shouldn't have, because the image
locked, and the VM segfaulted, so I couldn't investigate it more
- Do you have a bug tracker for Pier ?
