Subject [jira] Resolved: (TOOLS-3) Magic eliminates unix file command
Date Sat, 04 Sep 2004 10:53:44 GMT

   The following issue has been resolved as WON'T FIX.

   Resolver: Niclas Hedhman
       Date: Sat, 4 Sep 2004 3:52 AM

I suggest that we wait for the Metro proposal and see how that pans out. It is likely that
Magic will either be renamed or that the .metro directory is used instead. I will keep the
issue open.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: TOOLS-3
    Summary: Magic eliminates unix file command
       Type: Bug

     Status: Resolved
   Priority: Critical
 Resolution: WON'T FIX

    Project: Metro Tools

   Assignee: Niclas Hedhman
   Reporter: Joerg Schaible

Environment: Unix, Cygwin

Magic creates a .magic directory in the home directory of an user. Unfortunately this breaks
the unix file command. As long as this directory exists "file" cannot find its magic files
and is no longer able to determin the type of arbitrary files for that particular user. Renaming
or removing the .magic directory makes file work again:

joehni@paddy joehni $ file relnote.pdf
file: could not find any magic files!
joehni@paddy joehni $ mv .magic .magic-apache
joehni@paddy joehni $ file relnote.pdf
relnote.pdf: PDF document, version 1.3

Please rename this default directory!
