Description Robert Trace 2013-09-11 01:33:21 UTC
After upgrade to portage 2.2.1, rsync won't install seemingly due to portage trying to run xattr.list() on a file in an NFS mounted PORTDIR.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
# emerge -va1 rsync

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Comment 1 Robert Gill 2013-09-12 22:21:16 UTC
I ran into this issue as well. You can fix it by disabling the 'xattr' USE flag for sys-apps/portage, then re-emerge.

Would it be possible to change portage so that when the exception raised by copyxattrs is caught, a normal copy is tried before failing and exiting?
Comment 2 Jeroen Roovers gentoo-dev 2013-09-13 14:16:38 UTC
With sys-apps/portage-2.2.3 I get:
getfattr: /newaches/gentoo/cvs/gentoo-x86/net-misc/rsync/files/rsyncd.service: Operation not supported

which is non-fatal.

That's with user_xattr enabled for the NFS mount.
Comment 4 Arfrever Frehtes Taifersar Arahesis 2013-09-15 06:17:54 UTC
Robert Trace or somebody else: Please test with Portage running under Python >=3.3. I suspect that a different exception might be raised.
(The fix described in comment #3 is in code used with Python <3.3.)
Comment 6 Zac Medico gentoo-dev 2013-09-15 11:27:37 UTC
This is fixed in 2.2.5.
Comment 7 Robert Trace 2013-09-15 22:18:38 UTC
Since Arfrever asked, here's portage-2.2.1 with python-3.3.2-r2:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/bin/", line 248, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/bin/", line 243, in main
    returncode = copy_xattrs(opts, files)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/bin/", line 179, in copy_xattrs
    _copyxattr(s, abs_path, exclude=exclude)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage/util/", line 75, in _copyxattr
    attrs = _os.listxattr(src)
OSError: [Errno 95] Operation not supported: '/usr/portage/net-misc/rsync/files/rsyncd.service'


Otherwise I can confirm that portage-2.2.6 fixed it with both python-2.7 and 3.3.
