#556 closed defect (fixed)

setup-api.scm's `write-info' doesn't check for setup-info's directory existence before writing it

Reported by: Mario Domenech Goulart Owned by: felix winkelmann
Priority: major Milestone: 4.9.0
Component: core libraries Version: 4.6.x
Keywords: setup-api.scm, write-info, install-extension, setup-helper Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


Usually PREFIX/lib/chicken/BINVERSION exists when write-info is called, but there are certain corner cases (e.g., setup-helper on cross environments) which make write-info fail on trying to write to a file in a directory which has not been created.

The corner case triggered by setup-helper is that it doesn't contain any file to be installed on PREFIX/lib/chicken/BINVERSION besides the setup-info.

The attached patch fixes the problem by making write-info call ensure-directory before actually writing the setup-info file.
