• Editor Problem after update

    From HusTler@1:103/705 to All on Tuesday, October 01, 2019 16:00:21
    Hey DM.. Errrr I mean Hey Synchronet SysOps.....

    I just updated Havens BBS following MarisaG instructions line by line. Here they are:

    cd /sbbs
    backup_bbs
    export CVSROOT=:pserver:anonymous@cvs.synchro.net:/cvsroot/sbbs
    cvs update -d src 3rdp
    cd /sbbs/src
    ./cleanall.sh RELEASE=1
    cd /sbbs/src/sbbs3; make RELEASE=1 USE_DOSEMU=1 install
    cd /sbbs/src/sbbs3/scfg; make RELEASE=1 USE_DOSEMU=1 install
    cd /sbbs/exec
    cvs update -d
    jsexec update

    I then ran the command chown -R bbsowner:bbsowner /sbbs and reboot

    Now when I try to post a message with Fseditor or Syedit I get this:

    !JavaScript /sbbs/exec/SlyEdit.js line 1: SyntaxError: illegal XML character

    !ERROR compiling /sbbs/exec/SlyEdit.js

    The sysop has been notified.

    AND


    !JavaScript /sbbs/exec/fseditor.js line 2: SyntaxError: illegal XML character

    !ERROR compiling /sbbs/exec/fseditor.js

    The sysop has been notified.

    A little help please.

    I'm posting this with the internal Synchronet editor

    My guess is you have a merge conflict in that file. Run "cvs status" on the file and "cvs diff" check the status and see the differences between your local
    file and the matching revision in of that file in CVS. If you don't care about
    your local changes to the file, then use "cvs update -C SlyEdit.js" to get a clean copy.

    !JavaScript /sbbs/exec/fseditor.js line 2: SyntaxError: illegal XML character

    Ditto.

    It made sense to me the problem had to do with the editors so I Downloaded the editor files (jsedit and slyedit) and replaced them. I'm not sure if that's
    the right way to do it but it works fine now. Thanks for your reply.
