Description Tuomo Soini 2014-10-15 07:24:28 UTC
Created attachment 947112 [details]
Proposed patch - honor %_smp_ncpus_max

Description of problem:

rebuild of java-1.8.0-openjdk package fails on a machine with big number of cpu cores.

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


How reproducible:

Nearly always, the more cores, the more often random build failures happen.

Actual results:

If build machine has 24 cores build always fail with my limited testing (eight tries).

Hi, does the build fail without the patch, or does it just not use the right number of cores?

Comment 3 Tuomo Soini 2014-10-15 20:42:57 UTC
Build fails without patch. With patch and %_smp_ncpus_max 8  build works.

This is work-around only, real problem is in openjdk makefiles.

There is no similar problem with java-1.6.0-openjdk or java-1.7.0-openjdk.

Comment 4 Deepak Bhole 2014-10-16 14:30:29 UTC
Ah, so this is just 8-specific. Jiri, please take a look when you get a chance.

Comment 5 Tuomo Soini 2014-10-16 16:07:00 UTC
Did I say it somehow unclearly?

With 8 cores or less there is no problem.

With 24 cores build fails always without patch and number of cores limited.

Comment 6 Deepak Bhole 2014-10-16 16:08:28 UTC
No you were clear. I meant OpenJDK8 specific :)
