Hello,

Since Shepherd 0.9.2 the following tests are failing:


It seems that an unexpected #<eof> object is received on the marionette
socket.

* gui-installed-desktop-os-encrypted https://ci.guix.gnu.org/build/1431044/details

It seems that the Shepherd cannot be restarted in the install-system
procedure.

Thanks,

Mathieu

I had a look at the cgit system test, and it seems like this #<eof> is
coming from the NGinx pid file being empty.

Since empty files is a possibility with wait-for-file, I've sent a patch
to [1] which prevents the eof issue, plus another change to make it
easier to debug.


With that change, both of the above tests seem to pass for me.

This could be related to the Shepherd upgrade, but only indirectly, as I
think the failure at least for cgit was also timing dependent.

Nice! I wonder if we should maybe block in wait-for-file until the file
has some content. In the cgit/gitile tests, we will keep going while the
pid file is empty so the nginx server is not maybe completely up yet.

Yes looks like so.

OK so those two are fixed by Chris patch.

Regarding those four, I was able to reproduce the issue this way:

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
$ guix repl
(stop-service 'guix-daemon)
(start-service 'guix-daemon (list (number->string (getpid))))

The latter command hangs and Shepherd becomes unresponsive. I collected
an (attached) strace dump of Shepherd showing that there is no response
on the socket when the service is started.

Note that, this works:

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
$ guix repl
(stop-service 'guix-daemon)
(start-service 'guix-daemon)

So the problem could be caused by the "container-excursion*" in the
"fork+exec-command/container" procedure.

Thanks,

Mathieu

Or from the shell:

herd stop guix-daemon
herd start guix-daemon $$

I was able to reproduce it using a bare-bones.tmpl VM.

PID 1 gets stuck on read(16, …) forever, after reading the string “2866”
(a PID):

This happens because the other end of the file descriptor happens to be
inherited by 2866, which will never close it because it just execs
guix-daemon.

This is fixed by 6abdcef4a68e98f538ab69fde096adc5f5ca4ff4; the log
contains extra details.

Thanks!

Thanks for fixing it! Turns out we still have an issue on all four
installer tests.

The error messages look like:

Toggle snippet (5 lines)
Sep 22 09:49:19 localhost installer[252]: running command ("guix" "system" "init" "--fallback" "--no-grafts" "--no-substitutes" "/mnt/etc/config.scm" "/mnt")

Sep 22 09:49:21 localhost installer[252]: guix system: error: read error while loading '/mnt/etc/config.scm': /mnt/etc/config.scm:63:51: unexpected ")"

Having a look at the configuration file (attached), it seems that the
problem comes from the edit-configuration-file function. As the
rewritten configuration is shorter than the initial because the comments
are stripped by the pretty-print function, we have some leftovers from
the initial config.

I do not really understand why because call-with-output-file is supposed
to use the O_TRUNC flag and remove the existing content of the
configuration file. Plus, calling edit-configuration-file from a guix
repl does the right thing.

Anyways, I pushed fe4663ae2476cb527d4f1f49ff8fa077d43f7251 which fixes
the issue by removing the file before rewriting it.
