The Apple Trailers list is currently a static snapshot from many months ago. I recommend automatically re-syncing with apple.com as soon as the installer detects a working internet connection, so that the user has a good chance of seeing new trailers.

linhes-system: update apple-trailers on first boot, this is done inthe background and only once.
After the first boot, the cron job takes over for updating.

Updated by alien about 15 years ago

The cron.daily fixes I added to http://linhes.org/flyspray/index.php?do=details&task_id=439&project=2&pagenum=2 should fix this so they are updated every day (assuming the box is running at the cron.daily time).

Updated by Human about 15 years ago

That's useful going forward, but until the cron job runs, someone could potentially get trailers from N months ago. The proposal is to run the updater as soon as possible to avoid this.
