"MacOSX Darwin 7.9.0 pawn Dep" is red http://tinderbox.mozilla.org/Camino/ The reason is, as countless times before, the following error: make: ../../../config/config.mk:802: pipe: Too many open files Maybe it's worth spending a couple of minutes whipping up a cron script that does something like this: IF tinderbox-status == red AND grep tinderbox-log "Too many open files" THEN reboot
I'm not sure this will matter much in the near future given that we're (Camino) planning on switching to 10.4-only building. It'd definitely help right now, but mento has some other things that can handle this, iirc.
A reboot won't help, it needs to be clobbered in the directory with the dependency file that's causing make to open too many files. It's a bug in the version of make that Xcode 1.5 uses. There's a bug open about this. Xcode 1.5 is the only supported toolchain on 10.3.9, and these Camino tinderboxes are the last 10.3.9 boxes around. We had a workaround, based on the fact that once make hit this, some variables wouldn't be expanded properly and it would try to execute a command "m", so I put a script at /usr/bin/m to do the clobber. It worked until a few weeks ago, when something in a core makefile changed enough that make no longer attempts to run "m". I don't think it's worth worrying about too much, since we're going to be getting rid of the 10.3.9 tinderboxes in short order.
The affected boxes are almost dead anyway. WONTFIX.
