Description Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2015-04-08 12:10:30 CEST
We should resync our iTALC with the upstream version. There is at least one interesting commit:

"""discard output from slaves when not in debug mode

The demo slave generates some output via rfbLog. If no one reads the
output channel, eventually the buffer fills and write() blocks, causing
the demo server to hang. This fixes that by sending slave output to
/dev/null when not forwarding it."""
Comment 1 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-01-18 17:54:02 CET
iTalc 2.0-2 has been integrated. Shall we update to the git HEAD?

patches/002_thread-wait-for-termination.patch has been replaced by https://github.com/iTALC/italc/commit/0f3334f87acf3bd1e0802e75f53e17c8c4d8169d

patches/009_fix_install.patch has been replaces by https://github.com/iTALC/italc/commit/2dbe5f1902bc5cbf46987ea4bfa459aeb3db623a

Btw: we could use the official debian package, shall I import it from e.g. sid and drop our own?

ucs-school-italc cannot be build on amd64
Comment 15 Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2016-11-09 14:30:19 CET
(In reply to Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich from comment #14)
> ucs-school-italc cannot be build on amd64

Cannot be built because italc has not been built for amd64.
Comment 16 Florian Best univentionstaff 2016-11-09 15:55:29 CET
Rebuild both packages for both architectures:
italc 2:2.0.25-11.94.201611091451
ucs-school-italc 10.0.0-3.57.201611091459

I tested all the basic functionality again including presentation mode as teacher/student, sending commands, sending messages.
Comment 17 Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2016-11-10 12:02:25 CET
OK: updated amd64 UCS@school system to newest packages
OK: functional test
OK: both packages built for amd64 and i386
OK: advisories
Comment 18 Sönke Schwardt-Krummrich univentionstaff 2016-11-10 16:00:48 CET
