Re: [Evolution] red-carpet on Solaris just stopped working... new distributions.xml file at fault?

Sorry - I should of mentioned that.  With my fake uname library in
place, I do indeed get that dialogue box.  But to try to catch a truss
or some better idea of why it thought I was now wrong, I was running it
by hand without the wrapper script to get that crash...

Sorry I left this out.

      Thanks for the report.  You're right.  Something is wonky for Solaris
8.  We'll have this fixed in a few hours.

      (On a real Solaris 8 box, you should have gotten a dialog box telling
you that the distribution wasn't supported instead of the crash.)  It'll
be back being supported some time today.

I'm getting the following error from red-carpet as of this morning:

[cddb90]: Reading from the cache:

libredcarpet-ERROR **: file rc-distro.c: line 733
(rc_distro_get_status): assertion failed: (system_distro)
Abort (core dumped)

A bit of research shows that the distributions.xml file (when ungzipped)
has two <distro> blocks at the top for Solaris 7 and 8, both marked
<status> "internal", and then Solaris 7 and 8 both turn up again lower
down as retired and supported respectively, and 9 shown as
presupported.  In all cases the same uname commands and responses are
shown for the <detect> block.

As far as I can make out, no other OS shows the same version twice with
different statii (Latin was never my strong point ;O) and the
distributions file was updated last night...  Can I surmise that these
"internal" blocks were left in by mistake, and are causing this problem,
or do I suddenly have a compatibility problem here?

I should point out I'm actually running on a new Solaris 10 alpha build,
and am using a LD_PRELOADed uname-fixing library to get red-carpet to
work on it.  Not supported, but worked nicely thank you up until now ;O)
