Addons installation process

Post by hno » Sat Sep 13, 2008 1:35 am

Addons which require a reboot to install uses the following installation process

the addon file is dumped by the gui in /tmp, and it's name added to /.new_addons

There may be more than one addon installed one reboot, but will only work unless the .tmp.X0aPR7p "hack" is used (the rest will be ignored in such case)

For each filename listed in /.new_addons

1. The addon is verified (md5)

2. The tar file is unpacked

3. If /.tmp.X0aPR7p got installed this is run, removed and the system is rebooted

repeat for each addon listed in .new_addons.
