Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1022004
package count doesn't match with actual packages in repodata
Last modified: 2016-07-19 06:30:38 EDT
createrepo_c doesn't seem to cover this scenario well too.
It even sometimes hangs forever; strace output is:
futex(0xdb5fb0, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1C_CREATEREPOLIB: Warning: read_header: Fopen of ./<nvr>.x86_64.rpm failed No such file or directory
Warning: Cannot read package: ./<nvr>.x86_64.rpm
) = 1
write(1, "Pool started (with 5 workers)\n", 30Pool started (with 5 workers)
) = 30
futex(0xdb6024, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 1, NULL) = 0
futex(0xdb5fb0, FUTEX_WAKE_PRIVATE, 1) = 0
futex(0xdb6024, FUTEX_WAIT_PRIVATE, 3, NULL
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1022001 +++
How to reproduce:
1) create a file list with existing packages
2) append a line with package that does not exist
3) run $ createrepo -i <package-list> .
zegrep '<package |packages=' repodata/*primary*xml*
<metadata xmlns="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/common" xmlns:rpm="http://linux.duke.edu/metadata/rpm" packages="3">
Header says 3 packages while there are just 2 of them in metadata.
Fixing this is not going to be simple, as we write the package count to XML header first, then append <package> elements. And it's gz-compressed, so back-patching the right number is not possible.
To fix this, we need to add a 2nd pass (probably conditional, run on failures only). Pretty ugly IMO, but it should fix this, and not make createrepo much slower in the common case where the package count does not change.
Note about the hang:
I've tried to reproduce the issue with no success.
After Dan had updated its createrepo_c to the 0.2.1 version, the problem disappeared. So the "hang part" of this bug is considered as solved.
