Description John Reiser 2006-09-30 22:48:04 UTC
Description of problem: Attaching an strace to anaconda after Package Install completes, while the rpm database is being updated, shows system calls being performed on filedescriptors with numbers such as 23, 32, and 45. These numbers are too large (they should be at most 10 to 15), and indicate that some fds have been leaked (opened, never closed, and probably unused for a long time) along the way. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): anaconda-184.108.40.206-1 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. Upgrade from FC5 to FC6Pre using rescue disk and HTTP + DHCP; wait for Package Install to finish. 2. Use VT2 to "strace -p <PID of anaconda>" while installer updates rpm database. 3. Actual results: system calls with fds of 23, 32, 45. Expected results: No fd larger than 10 to 15. Additional info: PowerPC Apple Macintosh Mini. Partitons on hda were 1 through 6 (root on hda4, swap on hda5; others were Apple or unused); no other harddrives; only CD was FC6Pre rescue CD.
