|Summary:||Contact merge of number dialed manually via Skype fails due to internal error|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Applications] Contacts||Reporter:||Donn Morrison <donn.morrison>|
|Status:||RESOLVED FIXED||QA Contact:||contacts-bugs|
|Priority:||Low||CC:||andre_klapper, jorgen.scheibengruber, mike_morrison, sivan|
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM: 1. Open the Telephone application. 2. Select the dial pad. 3. Change call type to Skype. 4. Enter and dial a number (e.g. +1250XXXXXX) 5. Hang up (or proceed with call, it doesn't matter as long as the number gets into the recent calls list). 6. Close the dial pad, returning to the list of contacts in the Telephone application. 7. Find the above dialed number in the list (should be at the top). 8. Tap the number and select Merge. 9. Select desired contact for merge. EXPECTED OUTCOME: One expects the merge to succeed. ACTUAL OUTCOME: A notification is displayed saying that the merge failed due to an internal error. (Impossible d'exécuter l'opération. Erreur interne.) I have also tried the above steps making sure the field (Skype number) does not already exist in the contact I am merging with, and the error is the same. REPRODUCIBILITY: (always/sometimes/once) always EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED: OTHER COMMENTS: This functionality works correctly if the call type is cellular. The merge is successful.
I can confirm that this also happens for me. In English the error message says: "Unable to preform operation. Internal error."
> "Unable to preform operation. Internal error." sorry, should have been "perform".. i was typing too fast.
Weird. I cannot reproduce it here. I have queried internally for reports with that error message and "merg" and I only found one open ticket. Looks similar to int-115085 which does not apply anymore. If you are tech-savvy you could try to export OSSO_ABOOK_DEBUG=all before starting the addressbook, but this probably will not output a lot either. :-/
How reproducible is this? Always? How often did you try? Like "8 out of 8 tries"? Confirming as per comment 1.
(In reply to comment #4) > How reproducible is this? Always? How often did you try? Like "8 out of 8 > tries"? Yes, for me, it happens 100% of the time. I cannot merge any phone number called using Skype with an existing contact. Can you please tell me how I can use OSSO_ABOOK_DEBUG=all before starting the address book? Running: $ OSSO_ABOOK_DEBUG=all osso-addressbook doesn't seem to work, since the address book is already running. Killing it and the e-adressbook-factory doesn't work; they are quickly respawned again.
I can confirm. Andre, I think we don't have this one in the internal bugzilla yet, could you please copy it there?
Just wanted to add, this will happen with the same scenario when creating a new contact out of the dialed phone number in Skype mode. It is always reproducible (just choose "new contact" instead of merge) and always crashes the contacts app, slows down the machine a bit until it recovers.
The next public update will include a fix for this. To answer popular followup questions: * Nokia does not announce release dates of public updates in advance. * There is currently no access to these internal, non-public build versions. A Brainstorm proposal to change this exists at http://maemo.org/community/brainstorm/view/undelayed_bugfix_releases_for_nokia_open_source_packages-002/
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the fix will be available to users). Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).
