When I start orbited 0:0.7.10-3.fc11 using ‘/etc/init.d/orbited start’, it appears to start successfully, but actually just starts spinning at 100% CPU and does not accept connections.
It works better when I start it manually by running ‘orbited’.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '11'.
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 prior to Fedora 11's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 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 please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
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.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Luke - I see that you reopened this bug. The version is set to 11, but as F11 is EOL the version needs to be bumped.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Fixed in rawhide. Building for F14 and F13 as we speak.
The problem here was that we ship a custom patch that uses python-daemon to daemonize orbited. This patch, however, runs after the logger is setup and a bunch of file descriptors are open. When the python-daemon code executes, it closes all open file descriptors, and thus causes orbited to spin on them. I moved the code high up in the code path, and the issue seems to be resolved.
