Default VPS has issues emerging everything

Hi there,
something went wrong during a previous update and now revdep-rebuild
will kind-of freeze around 30%. When it freezes like that, the
hosting company shows one of it's CPU core is used at 100% non-stop
and the rest is idle. I have tried `emerge -e world` and with system,
they all fail similarly.

I managed to reconfigure it to have a working console and started
the `emerge -e system` from the console. After a while it froze, but
typed a ctrl-z to suspend the process, then %% to resume it and it
"unlocked" it. It often hung like in between two phases of the emerge
process (like after unpacking source, or just before doing the
install, etc). I was able to resume the emerge like that a good dozen
times until now, and now it's really locked, not responding at all...
seems like all 4 cores are used at 100%.

It hung while emerging perl and I've included the output on the
console below so you can see exactly where it hung. I will now force
a reboot on it and retry emerging just perl, I will reply to the list
with my results of that.

Uhhg....doesn't sound good at all.

If it's dieing on emerge -e system I'd be a little suspicious of a
drive or file system failure of some type. Do you have access to
smartctl to get to info on the drive? fsck possibly?

Good luck,
Mark

I re-emerged perl and it hung a few lines above my previous issue I
copied in prev email. But I was able to ctrl-z+%% to unfreeze it.
I'm not sure what to do now since the problem is still there...

I'm not sure what critical package deal most with the ability to check
for dependencies (revdep-rebuild was freezing, this one froze while
finding dependencies)... if anyone has a guess, I'll try rebuilding
that pkg and the winner gets a genuine 100$ of monopoly money.

emerge -e @system

needs to be able to determine dependencies. I think it doesn't get
much more basic than that.

What version of portage are you using?

Portage itself gets emerged pretty late in the emerge -e @system
process on my machine. You might try:

1) emerge portage
2) rm /usrportage/distfiles/*
3) eix-sync (or emerge --sync I guess)
4) emerge -fe @system
5) emerge -e @system

Also, smartctl -a /dev/sda

your drive and see if there are errors getting reported.

times until now, and now it's really locked, not responding at all...
seems like all 4 cores are used at 100%.

It hung while emerging perl and I've included the output on the
console below so you can see exactly where it hung. I will now force
a reboot on it and retry emerging just perl, I will reply to the list
with my results of that.


<<SNIP>>

Have you enabled python3 by any chance? eselect python list should show
2.6 as the active python.


Just a thought. Someone else did this the other day and had troubles.

Default VPS has issues emerging everything

This issue happend after a 'emerge -uDN world' after I had not done
any updates for a bit over 60 days. (I was just too busy)

I already have:
sys-apps/portage-2.1.9.25

and I don't have smartctl, what pkg is it in? I'm not sure it will
give valid info though as this is a VPS and everything is XENified.
My root device is /dev/xvda to give you an idea...

But I did run an fsck, a pretty thorough one like fsck.ext3 -c -c -f
or something like that... I also added another option that made it
super verbose, so I don't know if anything was found, just that
*filesystem was modified* by it...

I just did the following emerge, these packages had not been
recompiled by the emerge -e system that crashed. They all compiled
top shape, but the problem doesn't happen on every package, so it's
hard to tell...

emerge app-shells/bash sys-apps/util-linux sys-fs/e2fsprogs
dev-lang/python sys-apps/portage sys-apps/baselayout sys-fs/udev
sys-apps/busybox

I will redo a simple fsck.ext3 -c -c -f /dev/xvda and see what it says
exactly (if it says anything). And then i will --sync and -e @system
again... I'll reply to the list with my results...

Thanks,
Simon

Default VPS has issues emerging everything

Ok, the fsck reported nothing wrong...
I still got the same bug again... while doing `emerge -e @system`...
It got stuck right after the ">>> Installing" line below...

Dale, I just checked my python version and it was already 2.6, i set
it to 2.6 again, just in case, and continued my emerge (the ctrl-z +
%% worked at this point).

I'll reply here again with the next issue...

Thanks,
Simon
