|0002673||VCMI||Launcher||public||2017-05-04 10:31||2020-04-27 10:09|
|Priority||urgent||Severity||crash||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.next|
|Summary||0002673: Uninstall mod wipes and removes all files from home directory|
I didn't run the game yet and started the vcmilauncher via terminal in my home directory. I installed some mods via the launcher, but then decided to uninstall one again. The uninstall failed and wiped my complete home directory.
Thanks dudes, you are the best. Fortunately I have a one month old backup with all important files. But seriously...
I installed daily-builds vcmi via the ppa for linux. Run the vcmilauncher in my home directory and uninstalled a mod that I just had installed. The next moment my desktop environment goes crazy and then the launcher throws an exception and crashes. Some shock-seconds later I check my home directory and find nothing. Thanks for the data wipe.
- Do some sanity checks when deleting files.
- Or prompt with list of files for deletion.
- Or restrict on a specific folder.
|Steps To Reproduce||1. Install vcmi via daily build ppa for linux.|
2. Start vcmilauncher in home directory
3. Install mod
4. Uninstall mod
5. Hope you have a backup
|Additional Information||I am not willed to try the reproducibility.|
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|I'll investigate it ASAP. Though this is really weird since there was no changes in launcher in last few years and obviously nobody reported anything like that before.|
First I'm very very sorry I just forgot about this one and didn't fixed it straight away and in this case nothing I could post going to justify that... Sorry...
Postmortem: if mod installed and immediately removed without launcher restart then empty path is passed to QDir which usually mean user working directory on Linux. QDir::removeRecursively applied on it. I not sure when exactly that problem appear, but might be during some resource system refactoring since I can't believe it's here from the beginning.
I still can't understand at all how in year I didn't manage to wreck my own home directory. Probably I was just super lucky...
|No problem. That's one of those mystic errors that appear out of nothing with a big bang.|
This is certainly not appear out of nothing.
It's just insane to remove something recursively without prior check...
