Error from console

Description of problem:

Provisioning of RHSS2.1 through use of kickstart file with latest GlusterFS rpms i.e. glusterfs-libs- fails with below error in console.

"Error Installing package
A fatal error occurred when installing the glusterfs-libs package. This could indicate errors when reading the installation media. Installation can't continue"
The issue can be seen when ISO "RHSS-2.1-20131215.n.0-RHS-x86_64-DVD1" or RHS2.1U1 GA ISO used as source tree 

This came in to light when provisioning of the RHSS machines failed for BVT runs. Beaker provisioning failed for the latest RPMs with below error.

Installing glusterfs-libs-
error: %pretrans(glusterfs-libs- scriptlet failed, exit status 127

This issue is not seen for "yum install" or "yum update" for mentioned gluster RPMs. But I think we will hit this issue when we will create an ISO with the latest RPMs.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a kickstart file for RHSS
2. In the kickstart file use the repo which has the latest RPMs
2. Use RHSS-2.1-20131215.n.0-RHS-x86_64-DVD1 as source tree and try to install the OS

Actual results:

This is interesting issue - can we gather more information here? the 'pretrans' part doesn't seem to do much unless the 'pidof' part thinks that 'glusterfsd' process is running. 

%pretrans libs

 pidof -c -o %PPID -x glusterfsd &>/dev/null ---------> Here! 

 if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then -------> Here! 
   pushd . > /dev/null 2>&1
   for volume in /var/lib/glusterd/vols/*; do cd $volume;
       vol_type=`grep '^type=' info | awk -F'=' '{print $2}'`
       volume_started=`grep '^status=' info | awk -F'=' '{print $2}'`
       if [[ $vol_type -eq 0 && $volume_started -eq 1 ]] ; then
          echo "ERROR: In-service rolling upgrade requires pure distribute volume(s), should be stopped"
          echo "ERROR: Please stop distribute volume(s) before proceeding... exiting!"
          exit 1;

   popd > /dev/null 2>&1
   echo "WARNING: Updating glusterfs requires its processes to be killed. This action does NOT incur downtime."
   echo "WARNING: Ensure to wait for the upgraded server to finish healing before proceeding."
   echo "WARNING: Refer install/upgrade guide for more details"
   echo "Please run # service glusterd stop; pkill glusterfs; pkill glusterfsd; pkill gsyncd.py;"

Also the %pretrans by itself could be causing this issue - Niels i think this is what i was worried?

Comment 3 Harshavardhana 2013-12-18 01:32:37 UTC
Okay so the problem here is %pretrans

The issue is this - https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging:Guidelines?rd=Packaging/Guidelines#The_.25pretrans_scriptlet

%pretrans is invoked very early before the dependencies are met, so a shell cannot be coded into "%pretrans" block - we should instead use "lua" 

http://www.rpm.org/wiki/PackagerDocs/RpmLua - i will sending out another patch.

Comment 4 Harshavardhana 2013-12-18 01:33:58 UTC
Either that we write in "lua" or we completely avoid it by using "%pre" which basically no such restrictions. Its upto you guys to decide, i can go with either way here "lua" a new patch or removing %pretrans as we did before in RHS 2.1 Update 1

Comment 5 Bala.FA 2013-12-18 02:11:22 UTC
Patch is under review at https://code.engineering.redhat.com/gerrit/#/c/17611/
