Fetcher error reporting
Darren Hart <dvhart@...>
Here is an example of the do_fetch/do_unpack failure that I believe is representative of what Dirk saw and what I have been seeing periodically.
I saw the following while building libproxy in poky-image-sdk-live on a Fedora 13 box behind the firewall. I saw identical failures with opkg on a different machine - also behind the firewall. Both SRC_URIs point to googlecode.
NOTE: fetch http://libproxy.googlecode.com/files/libproxy-0.4.3.tar.gz
NOTE: libproxy-0.4.3: http://libproxy.googlecode.com/files/libproxy-0.4.3.tar.gz has no entry in conf/checksums.ini, not checking URI
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
NOTE: Unpacking /vol/1/dvhart/poky.git/build/downloads/libproxy-0.4.3.tar.gz to /vol/1/dvhart/poky.git/build/tmp/work/i586-poky-linux/libproxy-0.4.3-r2/
ERROR: Task failed:
With opkg, I tried the following which resulted in the same error.
$ bitbake -c clean;
$ rm downloads/*opkg*
$ bitbake opkg
In both cases, using wget to manually download the file and place it in
the downloads directory allowed the build to continue.
