Hi Mattias, i have tested the update in a DPM installation and we have checked that when enabling gridftp redirection the server just simply crashes. Then we have found out that in order to built the dpm-dsi with the new version of gridftp we had to make some code changes on our dsi , which i don't see in your commits. So it looks strange to us that you could built without touching the code. Could you please confirm that you haven't touched the code? i think we need to release by ourself the new version with the code changes cause we cannot go in production with this release

karma: -1


The root.log lists the correct versions were installed for the build:

  • globus-common-progs x86_64 16.0-1.el6
  • globus-gridftp-server-devel x86_64 9.0-1.el6
  • globus-common x86_64 16.0-1.el6
  • globus-common-devel x86_64 16.0-1.el6
  • globus-gridftp-server x86_64 9.0-1.el6

The build succeeded without code changes.

To check that it still builds today I just made scratch builds for rawhide and EPEL 6 which both succeeded without ny code changes.

When you say "in order to build the dpm-dsi with the new version of gridftp we had to make some code changes" does it mean that you had to make changes to make it compile, or it compiles without changes but changes are needed to make it work correctly?

i really don't understand why the build is working in your case..cause our build in jenkins was failing with :

DEBUG: In file included from /builddir/build/BUILD/dpm-dsi-1.9.6/src/dmlite_gridftp.c:10:
DEBUG: /builddir/build/BUILD/dpm-dsi-1.9.6/include/globus_gfs_internal_hack.h:276: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'globus_l_gfs_storattr_t'

which we fixed with https://svnweb.cern.ch/trac/lcgdm/changeset/11887

i can give you more details tomorrow when i will back to work.

When building packages in koji there is no network available, so the gen_include.sh script - which downloads source rpms using yumdownloader - can not be run. The globus_gfs_internal_hack.h header is therefore not re-generated during the build, but remains the version included in the sources.

thanks a lot Mattias! actually since we've introduced this way of automatically updating the header some release ago and it's already in production we have been lucky that nothing broke!! I will test the new version once in testing
