addons error

comment:1 by wenzeslaus, 8 years ago

Can you please elaborate more on how the addons are handled and what actually went wrong? I tis not clear to me if this is something which happens all the time or just when there is error in the source code.

the failure comes up if you have installed a binary addon (e.g. r.geomorphon) built upon an another winGRASS version (e.g. winGRASS7beta1) and you try now to use it with another/newer version (e.g. winGRASS7beta3 or winGRASS trunk).

the error message should contain something like: "you are trying to use an addon built upon an another/older version of winGRASS; please update your addon by reinstalling".

I've seen that in C:\Users\xxxxx\AppData\Roaming\GRASS7\addons\modules.xml there is following entry:

        <libgis revision="62177" />

using this information for a wxGUI-startup message which indicates to a needed addon update?

Perhaps the issue got now solved in r64581?

yes, I was thinking about that, but it's not implemented yet.

no, loading addons by wxGUI on start has been disabled in r64533. But not yet backported.

I was just looking at it, do you plan to backport first the ones (r64499, r64504, r64532) listed on the wiki? r64533 will be easier to backport then.

Everything related to this seems to backported (r64628, r64629). I am downgrading this ticket because it would be still nice to be able to know if addons are compatible or not.
