    No don’t (WAS : Downgrade your gnome-pilot!) (Score: 1)
    by hobbes on Tuesday, November 06 @ 13:54:14 GMT

    Seen on debian-devel-announce just minutes ago :


    gnome-pilot 0.1.62 had a serious bug in the backup/file conduit code which caused the synched Palm device to crash hard, requiring a hard reset

    and therefore a loss of data on the device, under two circumstances:

    1. While installing a new file

    2. While restoring backed-up files

    This has been fixed in 0.1.63-1, now in incoming. It is recommended that all gnome-pilot users upgrade as soon as possible. Upstream also recommends that you delete all prior backups; they can be found in the backup/ directory of

    your Palm’s directory, as configured in the druid. Simply removing the backup/ directory is sufficient.
