Got a very strange issue where my system gets stuck when trying to emerge one particular package, app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.78.0-r1

It completes the compile, however when it tries to complete the installation it just sits there forever at the Installing stage, without any errors

Code:

osiris / # emerge app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets

Also when trying to unmerge this package I get similar issues....it just sits there, at the Unmerging stage with no errors..

Code:
osiris / # emerge -C app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets
 * This action can remove important packages! In order to be safer, use
 * `emerge -pv --depclean <atom>` to check for reverse dependencies before
 * removing packages.

 app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets
    selected: 1.78.0-r1
   protected: none
     omitted: none

All selected packages: app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.78.0-r1

>>> 'Selected' packages are slated for removal.
>>> 'Protected' and 'omitted' packages will not be removed.

>>> Waiting 5 seconds before starting...
>>> (Control-C to abort)...
>>> Unmerging in: 5 4 3 2 1
>>> Unmerging (1 of 1) app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.78.0-r1...




I have looked in /var/log/messages and there aren't any errors. I have also tried rebooting, same result

I am running hardware raid 1, with an xfs filesystem and the disks are in good health (ie the raid card utility reports all disks are ok). Could it be disk corruption?

I'm guessing it is unable to remove the existing package for some reason.

I have also tried 'emerge -e system' but once again when it reaches this package I get stuck at the same spot again

Hopefully someone can advise my next move. Other details provided below...

TIA

Art ... you should post/pastebin the build.log as it'll proivde some idea of what task its hanging on. It should be /var/tmp/portage/app-text/docbook-xsl-stylesheets/temp/build.log

Art ... nothing wrong there, the build.log shows nothing unusual except there is no 'qmerge'. If I try and reproduce this the build.log shows this to be the completion of 'ebuild docbook-xsl-stylesheets-1.78.0-r1 install' (which "installs the package to the temporary install directory"). If I then run 'qmerge' (which "installs the package to the filesystem") then the build.log shows the merge. So, no clue why its hanging there, at least nothing is provided in the build.log.

You might try and strace the 'install' stage and see where it gets to ... and if it completes. If this is successful then run strace on the 'qmerge' stage.

best ... khay

You are using the nVidia proprietary driver, which has a history of weird problems when a buggy version slips through. Can you reproduce the problem on an untainted kernel?

Just compiled the latest stable kernel, 3.10.41-gentoo-r1, have booted into the stock kernel, with no nvidia drivers installed....same issue :(

Thanks for the suggestion

Have also booted off a live cd and run a xfs_check and xfs_repair, it found some minor inconsistencies which were fixed, however it hasn't made a difference....so i think the file system is ok

When you merge and unmerge it runs
Code:
app-text/build-docbook-catalog

which regenerates files in
Code:
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xsl-stylesheets

The problem may lie there. Try running emerge with the debug option --debug (-d).

Hi linm,

Looks like you are spot on with your suggestion...

I have rerun the emerge with the --debug switch (which is a nice tip btw) and dumped the build.log file here

http://pastebin.com/gyVd4jP9

It does get stuck on the build-docbook-catalog stage

Actually I am able to reproduce the same behaviour by invoking build-docbook-catalog from the shell...it just sits there

That is a shell script. It should look something like
Code:
# ls -l /usr/sbin/build-docbook-catalog
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 12237 Jan 24  2013 /usr/sbin/build-docbook-catalog

Try adding the -x option to the first line
Code:
#!/bin/bash -x

And run it again.

ok when i run it, i can now see the problem (i think)

Quote:

+ sleep 1
+ ln //etc/xml/build-docbook-catalog-lock.29303 //etc/xml/build-docbook-catalog-lock
+ sleep 1


ie it sleeps forever on lockfile 29303, repeating this over and over...

i found a bunch of lock files present in /etc/xml/ dated from May 26, which sounds about right as I recall having a power failure now that I think about it.

Removing the lock files has resolved the problem, I am now able to emerge this package without issue.

A big thank you to all who contributed to this thread.

Marking as solved :)

This could be worth filing a bug report
