Description Alex Chernyakhovsky 2013-06-17 03:26:19 UTC
Spec URL: http://web.mit.edu/achernya/www/fedora/rubygem-mysql2.spec
SRPM URL: http://web.mit.edu/achernya/www/fedora/rubygem-mysql2-0.3.11-1.fc19.src.rpm
The Mysql2 gem is meant to serve the extremely common use-case of
connecting, querying and iterating on results. Some database libraries
out there serve as direct 1:1 mappings of the already complex C API\'s
available. This one is not.

Note that this package upload will fix #787887, reducing the number of unpackaged gems that need to be installed to run rails.

Comment 1 Vít Ondruch 2013-06-19 10:45:41 UTC
I'll take this for a review.

Comment 2 Vít Ondruch 2013-06-19 12:04:09 UTC
* Test suite
  - I'd love to see the test suite executed during build, since it is quite
    important component and DB failures might result in data loss.
  - We are running test suite of rubygem-pg during build, so I'd love to see
    the test suite of rubygem-mysql2 executed as well.

* License file in main package
  - The %{gem_instdir}/MIT-LICENSE should go into main package [1].

* Move only .so file into %{gem_extdir_mri}
  - Only the platform specific files belongs to %{gem_extdir_mri}, so you
    should do:

    mkdir -p %{buildroot}%{gem_extdir_mri}/lib/mysql2
    mv %{buildroot}%{gem_instdir}/lib/mysql2/mysql2.so \

* Documentation should be marked as %doc
  - Please mark a documentation files (README.md MIT-LICENSE CHANGELOG.md)
    as a %doc.

* rpmlint issues
  - There used to be bug in gem2rpm which causes:

    ./rubygem-mysql2.spec:48: W: macro-in-comment %gem_dir

    Please escape the macro properly.
  - Macros in comments should be escaped properly (but this gets solved as soon
    as the test suite will be executed during build ;)

    ./rubygem-mysql2.spec:68: W: macro-in-comment %{buildroot}
    ./rubygem-mysql2.spec:68: W: macro-in-comment %{gem_extdir_mri}

Comment 3 Alex Chernyakhovsky 2013-06-19 20:25:06 UTC
Hi Vit,

Thanks for taking the time to review. I've corrected all of the issues except for the tests so far, because I'm running into an issue: installing mariadb-server doesn't start mysqld, and when I try to "systemctl start mysqld.service", I get:

DEBUG: + systemctl start mysqld.service
DEBUG: Failed to get D-Bus connection: No connection to service manager.
DEBUG: error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.fk7C3X (%check)

Do you have any suggestions on how I can/should start mysqld in mock in a consistent manner? This is the original reason I left the tests out.


Comment 4 Vít Ondruch 2013-06-20 05:40:15 UTC

I was afraid that it was the reason ;) Anyway, you should be able to run /usr/libexec/mysqld daemon manually with some parameters such as --socket --datadir etc. Then you should provide corresponding configuration.yml [1, 2].

You can take inspiration how it is done in pg test suite [3].

I would say that this is worth of querying upstream for such support as well.

Comment 5 Ken Dreyer 2013-07-27 20:54:48 UTC
Hi Vít, I've tried quite hard to get mysqld to properly start and stop in mock, without success. Also, I don't think that the tests ought to hold up the package review. Do you agree?

Alex, can you please post links to your latest spec and SRPM?

Comment 6 Alex Chernyakhovsky 2013-07-28 00:41:05 UTC
Hi Ken,

I've updated the latest at the same URLs as before:

Spec URL: http://web.mit.edu/achernya/www/fedora/rubygem-mysql2.spec

Comment 7 Achilleas Pipinellis 2013-07-29 18:47:45 UTC
*** Bug 989433 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 8 Miroslav Suchý 2013-07-30 12:18:21 UTC
I agree with #5 that running test in this case is little bit problematic.
Please note that there is new version available 0.3.13

Comment 9 Miroslav Suchý 2013-08-23 13:14:48 UTC
Vit does not have time, I will do the review. Taking.

Comment 10 Miroslav Suchý 2013-08-23 15:04:19 UTC
I really try to make test working. I got this:
DIR=$(mktemp -d)
/bin/chmod 0755 $DIR
chown mysql $DIR

cat <<EOF > /tmp/my.cnf

/usr/bin/mysql_install_db --datadir=$DIR --force --defaults-file=/tmp/my.cnf

/usr/bin/mysqld_safe --defaults-file=/tmp/my.cnf --external-locking --datadir=$DIR &

cat <<EOF > spec/configuration.yml
  host: localhost
  username: root

rspec -I%{buildroot}%{gem_extdir_mri}/lib/ spec

But tests are unable to connect even if I am able to connect from command line. :(
I'm really giving up. No tests.

So rest of the package:
