[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: febootstrap
Version: 2.1-4
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

I tried a febootstrap of Fedora 12 and it failed. The failure seems to
be coming at the end, probably from fakeroot or febootstrap itself.


Attached is the full log with the details.

Which package is this?

Segfaults are in any case caused by incompatibilities between glibc in
the host and appliance.  You have to only install an operating system
which is compatible with the host OS.  In Fedora we recommend only
installing (eg) Fedora 12 on Fedora 12, because that way you know that
glibc won't have problems.

I use debootstrap to install debian and ubuntu versions in chroots.
I have installed ubuntu 8.04 on debian testing and a bunch of other
combinations and never seen that before.

So why is febootstrap even made available to be installed under debian?

This is kind of old, I really need to update this to the
latest version.

It does in fact work, but not in all cases.

Hi,

I'm using febootstrap since some week and indeed, I'm able to reproduce the bug.
However, I disagree with the severity serious as it doesn't renders
package unusable.

After the segfault and the febootstrap cache removal failure, the
boostrap is functional.
You can chroot and use it as expected (note: you should cleanup the
cache yourself if you want more space).

Anyway, a new upstream release will be appreciated. If you don't mind,
I could upload a NMU if needed.

Cheers,

Fathi

Yes please.  The version in Debian is ancient.

These segfaults are almost certainly caused by glibc in the chroot not
matching glibc outside the chroot.  In practice when we do this in
Fedora we ensure that the glibc versions are identical.

This in turn may be caused because we aren't setting the correct
LD_LIBRARY_PATH(s) up inside febootstrap, so that we're in effect
mixing internal parts of the two different glibc versions.  I haven't
really had time to look into this in any detail.

I don't recollect now but there were issues with the half baked chroot 
environment. That was the justification for the severity.

Do you get those segfaults as well if you run febootstrap with
--no-clean?

If it is just the clean which fails, I agree.  At least in the original
logfile, I do not see any other segfaults.

I still have a single segfault instead of the bunch of segfaults:
Complete!
/usr/bin/febootstrap: line 93: 15649 Segmentation fault      [
"$clean" = "yes" ]

You know my opinion on the severity of the bug.

Ritesh, could you describe the issues ?

The segfaults seems related to yum cache cleanup and it doesn't seems
a big deal.

Cheers,

Fathi

If there indeed is an issue, please bump the severity back again.
