Anyone used it yet?

    Presumably lost under whiteout.
At the first update attempt, flash was paused while playing a video. After the update flash just played on from where video was paused, which did seem a bit suspicious. Play continued to the end of video without problem. Leaves one to surmise that files of new version only required upon flash activation.

At the second documentary invocation of Update following reboot, flash had not been activated. (Flash is always set to Ask to Activate). To play a video required to click on Allow Activation. After clicking this nothing happened, which was when wipeout discovered.


Remedy is either to reboot or deactivate flash before attempting update. The script could do this by checking for flash activation and then

Code: Select all

read p q < <(ps x | grep libflashplayer.so)
kill $p
followed by deactivation.

Upon reboot with activation of updated flash module, found all plugins wiped out! Despite

So far not been able to find cause of this. Rebooting with previous flash module remedies the situation.

Firstly thanks for the way you approach trouble shooting. Everyone should take a look how it's done. It makes my work much easier.

I guess I never thought about fringe user case scenarios such as updating flash mid way through using it. I will look at adding a function to kill it and remove any modules/packages installed before updating. Thanks.

ps x | grep libflashplayer.so
You searched the active processes and found libflashplayer.so being used.

root@porteus:/home/guest# echo $p
3317

You got the process ID of the active libflashplayer.so

That ID appears to be that of the echo or read commands. Firefox and flash were opened prior to those commands and should have numbers lower than 3300 imo.

      Thanks for pointing this out. It appears that the grep process has been started a bit after the ps process, and so gets to be listed by it.

Wow!! :shock:

You're amazing Bogomips.

So many nuances I've never seen before. Or know what they mean. :D

Thanks for taking the time. :beer:

It appears that the grep process has been started a bit after the ps process, and so gets to be listed by it.
pgrep is a much better alternative.

BTW How does this work?

Code: Select all

[[ $p ]] 
I suspect it means if $p is not blank to then proceed.

The other nuance that I don't understand deals with removing the / and the end of the file's name. [[ ${f%?} ]] How the heck does that work?

The running pgrep or pkill process will never report itself as a match.
The process name used for matching is limited to the 15 characters present in the output of /proc/pid/stat. Use the −f option to match against the complete command line, /proc/pid/cmdline.

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ pgrep -flu guest libflashplayer.so                                
1603 plugin-containe                                                               
guest@porteus:~$ pgrep -fu guest libflashplayer.so
1603

guest@porteus:~$ p=$(pgrep -fu guest libflashplayer.so)
guest@porteus:~$ echo $p
1603
There are just so many greps, so let's see what we can have:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ compgen -c | egrep 'grep$' | sort -u
bzgrep
egrep
fgrep
grep
lzegrep
lzfgrep
lzgrep
pcregrep
pgrep
ptargrep
xzegrep
xzfgrep
xzgrep
zegrep
zfgrep
zgrep
zipgrep

Thank you Bogomips.

I have never seen the ${f%?} option before. To remove a character at the end of a string I use ${f: -1}.

Thanks for your hard work Bogomips. I will take a look at these script when I am travelling. File sizes mean I can reupload on very little bandwidth.
