• Dupe fileareas w/mutil

    From boraxman@21:1/101 to All on Friday, July 15, 2022 00:24:40
    I am experiencing unexpected behaviour with MUTIL's Import_FILEBONE.NA section.

    My section's configuration is at the bottom. The problem is that each time I run mutil, the file sections are added over and over. I'm using the fsx_file.na file from the fsx package, but I get the same results with my own file. For the Import_FIDONET.NA, once the message sections defined in the import file are added, they are not duplicated each time I run mutil. Mutil recongises that these groups are created and does not do it again.

    But for the file sections, each time I run mutil, it adds the FSXNET Fileecho List, over and over each time, resulting in a new duplicate each time. I feel this is incorrect, and that mutil should only add them if they don't already exist.

    I'm using Mystic BBS v1.12 Rev 47 on a Raspberri Pi running Debian Buster.

    My configuration.


    filename = ach_file.na
    lowercase_filename = 1
    root_dir = /mystic/files/

    ; Use echotag for base description and FTP name

    use_echotag = false

    ; Convert tags to lower case for filebase base filename/dir
    ; True or 1 for yes, false or 0 for no

    ; Default values when creating a new file base

    dispfile =
    template = ansiflst
    acs_list = s20g5
    acs_ftp =
    acs_download = s20g5
    acs_upload = s255g5
    acs_hatch =
    acs_sysop = s255

    ; true/false type values 0=false 1=true (newscan 2=forced)

    new_scan = 1
    free_files = 0
    show_uploader = 1
    anon_ftp = 0

    Hello boraxman!

    You should probably post this to the MYSTIC FidoNet echo, as g00r00 is not on fsxNet any longer, so he won't know of the problem otherwise...

    (He might be on some other networks as well, but I'm not sure exactly which ones...)

    I haven't used those import routines myself -- I try to catch up with any new echos manually instead by monitoring the FSX_NET echo (and others). :)

    Best regards
