[FAA] Save changes-module in the PSC

Post#1 by ElectriQT » 02 Feb 2015, 01:20

No check if we are out of disk space in the process of saving the todays system-changes to folder "modules",

Result is 2 bad tings:

a script will hang, so the save session eat up 50-99% CPU and that will never finish/end it self, even after psc is closed.
("killall save-session" , is that the correct way to stop it? Or loose all active work when you do a ctrl+alt+backspace, but that will stop the cpu hogging)


But it also say "module ready!", ....even when nothing was actually written to disk (flash).
And no one knows that it is *not* there.
So if you dont look in the folder and not spot that the last changes are not there when it says "ready", then you will loose all work? Danger!

it is probably not critical,

but the glibc -bug, and flash & updated firefox module, I wold say that have high prio now

for example new linux-users that build a New iso in the configurator, they should not have insecure setup at start. Right?

How can we help?
(yes, the problem with trust is there for important security base-modules, so it might be hard to actually do something as help?)
