Thread: Vuze update issue

  1. #1

    Default Vuze update issue

    A failure happened where when I installed vuze then booted it up I got the message:


    The folder "usr/share/java/Vuze is not writable.
    This will prevent future software updates from being applied.
    Please see wiki for details.

    Anyone know a solution to this?

    How exactly?

    If you installed from openSUSE repos, there is nothing to do, it is
    intentional.

    As robin_listas indicated, it's either intentional or you probably installed manually.

    If you install from the correct repo (check https://software.opensuse.org/package/Vuze ) permissions should be correctly set for you.

    If not so, get in contact with the repo mantainer and/or post a bug report.

    Another thread about this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1263003 but I think it won't be much help, instructions are ubuntu-specific.

    To clarify, I meant that (at least for official openSUSE packages)
    autoupdates are disabled for security policy. Instead, you have to use
    one of the system package managers to do it: yast, zypper, apper... That
    is, a single tool to update all. That's our way, different from the
    WIndows way of having each application handling its own updates.

    Admittedly,
    I haven't used Vuze in about 3 or so years,
    IIRC when I installed it from the Vuze site, it created a fairly typical Java directory tree that was portable and would run anywhere, and didn't point to any location external to that tree, so updates and other functionality wasn't a problem.

    A working Vuze wasn't available any other way at the time, so if you installed from a different source you may encounter issues specific to that deployment.
