#8065 new defect

Zephyr tzc config given in doc is incorrect.

Reported by: wcattey Owned by: seanegan
Milestone: Component: Zephyr
Version: 2.5.3 Keywords:

Description

The FAQ info to configure Zephyr with tzc at: http://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/Protocol%20Specific%20Questions#ZephyrProtocol

says to specify the tzc string as follows:

/path/to/tzc -e "%s"

Note the quotation marks around %s.

It doesn't work. The helpful (sic) error message you get is, "invalid output by tzc (or bad parsing code)"

I stepped through the code and tzc_cmd_array contains: "%s" but line 1636 in zephyr.c for %s with no double quotes. Indeed, the default strings don't quote the %s. Removing the quotes results in a working use of tzc.

Someone should re-confirm that we're not supposed to put double quotes around the %s, and correct the documentation.

  • Component changed from unclassified to Zephyr
  • Owner changed from lschiere to seanegan

Given that none of the developers actually use zephyr and it is only maintained through patches, someone who actually uses it is going to have to do the investigatiion.

Maybe move to Patches Welcome?
