Description Devan Goodwin 2009-03-25 16:18:17 EDT
Description of problem:

Spacewalk setup hangs at the final restarting services stage on Fedora 10. (at least)

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


How reproducible:

100% on Fedora 10, not sure about others.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run spacewalk-setup normally.
Actual results:

Setup prints "* Restarting services." then sits there forever.

Expected results:

Normal completion.

Additional info:

Technically all services have started successfully, the problem appears to be related to new code in Setup.pm sub system_debug originating in commit f5eb2855.

Placing an echo at the end of /usr/sbin/rhn-satellite shows that the script does terminate, but the while loop in system_debug never realizes this.

jabberd service appears to be the culprit, if while hung you switch to another terminal and "service jabberd restart" the original spacewalk-setup process immediately picks up and completes normally. If you remove jabberd from the list of services in /usr/sbin/rhn-satellite, the problem does not occur.

Reverting f5eb2855 also allows the process to complete normally. (though I have selinux disabled and I understand the change was to accomodate selinux in the first place)
Comment 1 Shannon Hughes 2009-03-25 16:34:43 EDT
just a couple notes that i noticed some logic sandwiched between the subroutines upgrade_stop_services and spinning_callback. was that supposed to be orphaned in the main driver area?

Filed a bug 492378 against jabberd.

I'll try to come up with a workaround thou.
