Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds
Having just pushed the patch from bug 1275037, seamonkey-release is getting the following errors from "Cron <root@staticadm>": Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds... Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds... Couldn't get build lock; waiting another 15 seconds... Couldn't get build lock. at bin/build-exclusive.pl line 51. with the following subject: (cd /data/static/build/seamonkeyproject-org; bin/build-exclusive.pl; /data/static/deploy -nq www.seamonkeyproject.org) who do I ask for help?
Jens, any idea? I've scanned through the patch for bug 1275037, and I'm not sure how I did this.
Sorry, no idea. You need to get someone with access to the build host to check/reset the cron job, maybe remove the lock file, too. Don't know who exactly to ask, though.
with the help from :jlaz (*thanks!*) found out that we have three cron jobs running: # update www.seamonkeyproject.org */10 0-7,9-23 * * * root <script> 0-10,30-59/10 8 * * * root <script> 20 8 * * * root <script> *sanitized for public consumption.. :) due to some lock contention issue.. two (or more) jobs were probably trying to get a lock on the same lockfile (/tmp/smprojorg-build). I told :jlaz to comment out those and create a new cron job: */10 * * * * root <script> Since I don't know who created the original cronjob, perhaps someone can explain the cron jobs. (btw, I had trouble groking that 2nd entry.. :) Anyway.. this seems to be unhorked.
