Description Mateusz Piotrowski freebsd_committer 2020-02-23 19:58:27 UTC
I was looking for a way to start Ghidra with a non-default JDK and found out that it is possible by overriding some defaults in the /usr/local/share/ghidra/support/launch.properties file.

Would it be possible to install this file as /usr/local/share/ghidra/support/launch.properties.sample and mark it with @sample in pkg-plist so that user modification are not overwritten by an package update?

More on the @sample keyword: https://www.freebsd.org/doc/en/books/porters-handbook/book.html#plist-keywords-sample

Thank you, this seems like a good idea!
I've just realized I'm also behind with two minor versions (we have 9.1 and the most recent is 9.1.2), so I think I'll make this change with the updated version.

Hi Tamas,

do you need help testing the new version (9.1.2)?
[Don't want to open up a new bug just for a version update]

It might be a good idea to open a new PR so that we could commit the update in case of a maintainer timeout.

I am not working on it at the moment. Return to the pool.
