Cheers fellas, I thought that Portage left me for dead, but the above fixed the problem for now. I am not going to rsync for the moment until it has the all clear. I use the belnet server a lot. Anyway, can someone say in very clear terms what _users_ should do for the moment when they see the eclass errors?

Once again, cheers, blurb...


Suggestion: Do the fix as above. Then leave everything alone until the 'all clear' is given.

Works for me. :-)

Hey, no need to know linux in and out - just know murphy, that's all ;) Since gentoo is bleeding edge, things happen time and again, but usually just single packages and the fixes are faster than with any other distro.

to be truthfull, this bad experience (lots of things not working) is a good point to get me in. I'm a support person. I do tech support for a living. disaster recovery IS my life, lol. soo seing how well gentoo is recovering from this rather big problem is showing me how quick they react to crap, and it's good :)

sides, I know murphy well, and right now he's being rather quiet from what I can see, LOL. as far as my experience goes anyway

right now slowly re-sync ing the thing from the working mirror. set the retry value to 40 in my make.conf and set it to try every 20 minutes seince I can'T get in now. going to bed soon, hoping it'll be fix when I get back :)

Sure is faster response...!!!

But, this problem could be announced al Gentoo's Home Website with a warnning sayind something like this:
Don't sync until advice (or do at your own risk) :evil:
A lot of trouble can be evited (and a lot of unusefull byte traffic)

Some more info what happened from klieber on #dev:

we generate metadata server-side for portage -- that happens on rsync1.us.gentoo.org

rsync1 pulls updates from cvs

cvs was heavily loaded at the time, so it ended up starting two cvs up processes and two metadata-regen processes, with the net result being Bad Things

robbat2 is fixing that problem by ensuring the script uses a lockfile from now on

PostPosted: Tue Jul 01, 2003 10:51 am    Post subject: portage version and SYNC hint Reply with quote

Hi there,

I read in another thread that reemerging portage would fix the problem.
emerge portage didn't work, but emerge portage-2.0.48-r2.ebuild in the respective dir in the portage tree did (I didn't realize that 2.0.48-r2 was masked). It didn't solve the problem though.

Afterwards I found this thread and tried to fix the problem using the SYNC=... hint from this thread, and I tried to downgrade portage to 2.0.48-r1 which is stable. This fails:


Code:

root@existenz# emerge portage
Calculating dependencies ...done!
>>> emerge (1 of 1) sys-apps/portage-2.0.48-r1 to /
>>> md5 src_uri ;-) portage-2.0.48-r1.tar.bz2
>>> Unpacking source...
>>> Unpacking portage-2.0.48-r1.tar.bz2 to /var/tmp/portage/portage-2.0.48-r1/work
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Archive contains obsolescent base-64 headers
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

bzip2: I/O or other error, bailing out.  Possible reason follows.
bzip2: Broken pipe
        Input file = /usr/portage/distfiles/portage-2.0.48-r1.tar.bz2, output file = (stdout)

!!! ERROR: sys-apps/portage-2.0.48-r1 failed.
!!! Function unpack, Line 294, Exitcode 2
!!! failure unpacking portage-2.0.48-r1.tar.bz2


The tar.bz2 is extractable with tar -xjvf so I fear I have a problem because of the unstable portage version. Does anybody have a hint about how to go on from here?

Cheers,
Holger

Holder backup your /etc/make.* files befour do this, anyway read all this topic and you will find help about this.
Code:
cd /usr/portage/sys-apps/portage/files/
tar xjpUvf portage-rescue-2.0.47-r10-x86.tbz2 -C /


About the rsync, it's fixed well great, that's why I love gentoo;)

Obrigado, Tó, that worked.

What is a bit strange now though is that when portage calculates the dependancies and shows the sequence |\-/ (the turning dash) there seem to be a few newlines between each step so everything is scrolling now, which didn't happen like that before. But that seems only to be a cosmetical problem.

{humor}
Tsk, tsk. Even I, JoeDumbUser, know to use lockfiles for critical processes. --hehe--
{/humor}

In all seriousness though, the responsible Gentoo team members are to be congratulated for their fast work! Thanks guys.

"emerge rsync" should be transactional in terms that after screwing the tree up it must be capable to roll-back to the previous tree (to status before "emerge rsync").

BTW, what is the bug # for it?

I can close the Jack Daniels bottle, things are working fine again at "ftp.belnet.be". I have to say that the Gentoo community is like no other, I'll never consider another distro in my life. Man, this fix ripped through the Web today.

Go back a page in this thread and read how you can replace portage *r2 with *r1, which will fix the unpacking problem.

Thanks to ElCondor, now everything is "in-sync" again. Nothing was missing for me in the "oneinall copy-paste solution": http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=393533#393533

Well, that was a funny morning, wasn't it? We all know, if computers are ever to have a soul, they would be evil anyway. Nevertheless we never give up to tame them, keep them tied down in the chains of proper processing, doing (somehow) as they were told to. We put so much strength and effort into this, so much emotion, that we only become better - in technique as well as in our soul ;)

And best of all: we humans stick together! We need no aliens, no matrix, just to fight our own simple creations standing under our desk. And we succeed.

Sometimes I fell a little bit closer to the point when I might be able to say: "Hey, my job isn't all bad ";))
