[SRU] Update to 0.4

Bug #1786265 reported by Sebastien Bacher on 2018-08-09
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
bolt (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

* Impact

That's a new component and a piece of hardware enablement. The update is having dbus API changes and is not a bugfix only version, but we believe it's better to follow improvements in that new stack than stay on an early version which is incomplete and unmaintained.

The service has no rdepends out of gnome-shell which already works fine with the new version

The summary of the changes can be found there

* Test case
- log into an Ubuntu session
- connect a new Thunderbolt device
- check that gnome-shell displays the request for authentication for the device and that the authentication can be validated/the device can be used

* Regression potential

There are quite some code changes but bolt is limited to authentication of Thunderbolt devices, we need to test that the boltctl command line and the GNOME integration keep working to auth/revoke devices.

@seb128 that's only cosmic - is there a bionic update?

Yes, it's waiting for review in the SRU queue

I think there has been some delays in SRU reviews recently due to .1 freeze and holidays though...

The few new features are rather unfortunate, but seeing that there's a lot of unit-testing present that's being run built-time, I suppose we can put it under the MRE case.

@sil2000 ok it works for me, from lightdm. However the mouse and keyboard don't work in UEFI, grub or plymouth without booting into windows first

@tagrain hey! Thanks for giving it a spin - could you also report which version of bolt did you use for testing?
