Description Pierre Lejeune 2005-10-13 04:58:02 UTC
When I do an emerge world, emerge hangs just before the source unpacking. I 
can do a normal emerge. I tried to downgrade portage, to reemerge ccache, to 
run python-updater, ... but nothing has helped.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge (-uDavN) world

Actual Results:  
Hanging of emerge world

Expected Results:  
Emerge world succesfull

Mind running with --debug, and posting the output, either in-line or as an 
attachment if the output is large?

Try disabling sandbox, if it continues, strace it please (and attach the log)

Sandbox already disabled. The strace log size is 32 MB so I can't upload it. You
can find it here : from (about) 9h to 22h
(Belgian Time).

Can you do "tail -n 1000 strace_log > strace_log_last_1000" and attach the last
1000 lines?  Also, it would be better if you compressed the 32 MB log with bzip2
to make the download smaller (you were offline when I tried to grab it).

Here is the compressed strace_log (original size is 32MB)
Comment 8 Pierre Lejeune 2005-11-06 07:08:15 UTC
Upgrade to portage-2.0.53-rc7. Nothing has changed. When emerge have something
to do with the world file (emerge (-uDN) world, emerge --depclean, ... not
fetch), it hangs. Emerging "separately" works.
Comment 9 Jason Stubbs (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-11-06 07:35:52 UTC
Does disabling PORT_LOGDIR help at all? It shouldn't, but might.

Is this related to the exec problem?

> Is this related to the exec problem?

Well, bug 104705 should only express itself when portage kills tee at exit time, but in this case it seems that portage does not exit.  Maybe something is wrong with /usr/bin/tee (need to rebuild coreutils)?  Here's a simple test for tee:

echo hello | tee /dev/stdout
Comment 13 Simon Stelling (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2006-04-16 13:48:01 UTC
Assuming tee's broken here. Pierre, if the bug still exists for you, can you please reopen it with the output of

# echo hello | tee /dev/stdout

Closing due to old age
