Description Bill Nottingham 2007-05-05 05:02:07 UTC
We're attempting to bootstrap Extras on ppc64.

maven is proving to be problematic.

We can build plexus-* with --without-maven, similarly for maven-(a couple things).

However, even with --with-bootstrap and --without-itests, the maven build itself

Is there a document somewhere with the precise defines and orderings to
bootstrap the package stack? Has the process been tested recently?

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-05 05:06:58 UTC
Partial build log at http://people.redhat.com/notting/maven.log.

jpprepolayout patch with extra verbosity

Comment 3 Deepak Bhole 2007-05-06 17:30:00 UTC
If the build it starting, it means all of the requirements (whether in bootstrap
mode or otherwise), are being satisfied, and beyond that, there are not
additional things that need to be taken care of before hand.

The log does not show any sort of error. According to the last few lines, all
components built successfully, so there was no reason for maven to quit with
code 1. 

I have attached a patch that will enable debug messages during bootstrap. Can
you please replace the maven2-jpprepolayout.patch in the srpm with the attached
one, retry the build, and post the log?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-08 05:36:25 UTC
Full build log of failure at http://people.redhat.com/notting/maven.log.

Comment 7 Deepak Bhole 2007-05-09 22:28:59 UTC
I am unable to see what is causing the problem.

The issue is that the bootstrap code is doing a system call, executing "mvn
...", and at the end, it thinks it is getting return code 255 instead of the
expected 0. However, running the "mvn ..." in the same environment command
produces a return code 0.

Since the involved code spans projects outside of maven, it will be harder and
time consuming to trace. What is the deadline for this?

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2007-05-10 02:37:09 UTC
As long as nothing we *need* to ship as a ppc64 binary RPM depends on maven, we
can wait indefinitely, and just ExcludeArch it. I just filed the bug because I
was trying to get it bootstrapped so we could have it, and was getting stuck.

Comment 9 Deepak Bhole 2007-09-21 22:27:15 UTC
Just an update --

While the issue remains open (it is a problem with gcj on ppc64), in the mean
time, I have ExcludeArch'd ppc64 and built maven2 on the remaining platforms. So
ppc64 users will have to make do with ppc binaries for the time being, but they
will have maven2 in F8.

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Comment 11 Bug Zapper 2008-05-07 01:40:08 UTC
This bug has been in NEEDINFO for more than 30 days since feedback was
first requested. As a result we are closing it.

If you can reproduce this bug in the future against a maintained Fedora
version please feel free to reopen it against that version.
