Description Gary Benson 2005-06-17 12:41:42 UTC
Description of problem:
If you try and build axis with all of ant's subpackages installed then the build
will fail.  Something is repeatedly scanning the system classpath and leaking a
file descriptor for every jar in it.  With all of ant's subpackages installed,
the system classpath is long enough for the standard ulimit of 1024 open files
to be hit.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ant and all of its subpackages.
2. Comment out the workaround in axis.spec (search for OPT_JAR_LIST).
3. Try and build the axis rpm.
A random IO error, which strace reveals to be an open() failing with EMFILE.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 16:12:52 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
