Description Trevor Cordes 2014-04-22 21:16:59 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to use Igor Gnatenko's kernel-package to bisect the kernel for Fedora 19 to solve another bug, as per this page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/User:Ignatenkobrain/Kernel/Bisection

Following the instructions, at the ../kernel-package/kernel-package.py stage I get this output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "../kernel-package/kernel-package.py", line 342, in <module>
  File "../kernel-package/kernel-package.py", line 330, in main
    options = Options(WORK_DIR)
  File "../kernel-package/kernel-package.py", line 47, in __init__
    self.hcommit = self.repo.head.commit
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/git/refs/symbolic.py", line 168, in _get_commit
    obj = self._get_object()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/git/refs/symbolic.py", line 161, in _get_object
    return Object.new_from_sha(self.repo, hex_to_bin(self.dereference_recursive(self.repo, self.path)))

    oinfo = repo.odb.info(sha1)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/db/base.py", line 256, in info
    return self._db_query(sha).info(sha)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/db/base.py", line 239, in _db_query
    if db.has_object(sha):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/db/pack.py", line 88, in has_object
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/db/pack.py", line 71, in _pack_info
    index = item[2](sha)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/pack.py", line 492, in sha_to_index
    return PackIndexFile_sha_to_index(self, sha)
ValueError: Couldn't obtain fanout table
Exit 1

It seems similar to bug #1004918.  Without Igor's scripts, I don't see how I can easily bisect vanilla kernel with Fedora's config (I am new at it).

Bug #1004918 seems to indicate it is because I am running 32-bit.  Igor says it does not happen on 64-bit.  He said to open a new bugzilla for it.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow instruction on web page
2. ../kernel-package/kernel-package.py

Actual results:
errors as above

Expected results:
completes so I can build the kernel to test

Additional info:
possibly a 32-bit only bug

Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 21:19:18 UTC
This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora 
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is 
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no 
longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will
be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 20:11:17 UTC
Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.

I'm now running F21, and I need to use his scripts to compile another 32-bit PAE kernel and the bug remains.

Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2015-05-31 22:50:36 UTC

Comment 6 Trevor Cordes 2015-06-05 04:14:49 UTC
My box against which I filed the original bug report is still running F21 (22 is a little new for me).  Is it possible to get this update pushed for F21?  Then I can directly test if it solves my bug.  Thanks!

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2015-06-09 15:15:57 UTC
GitPython-1.0.1-1.fc22, python-gitdb-0.6.4-1.fc22, python-smmap-0.9.0-1.fc22 has been pushed to the Fedora 22 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

Comment 8 Dennis Gilmore 2015-06-09 22:41:59 UTC
there is a F21 build in koji, I have not pushed it yet as I wanted more testing first

Comment 9 Trevor Cordes 2015-06-10 08:02:29 UTC
I just got from koji:

And I still get the same bug error:

  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gitdb/pack.py", line 500, in sha_to_index
    return PackIndexFile_sha_to_index(self, sha)
ValueError: Couldn't obtain fanout table

Relevant packages:

Is there something else I need to install from testing?

Or should I reopen this bug??

Comment 10 Trevor Cordes 2015-06-10 08:04:22 UTC
Oh, I just saw:

installed it and still bug remains.

Comment 11 Trevor Cordes 2015-06-10 08:08:11 UTC
I can't see a way in bodhi to leave karma for the F21 version?

Anyways, it looks like the new version does *not* solve my bug.  Can we reopen?
