Key Status/Updates:

  • YP 3.4 M1 was built and is in the QA process.
  • The intermittent ltp hanging issue is continuing to be tracked down, currently thought to be a kernel bug introduced around the 5.0 -> 5.1 kernel version window. We ended up unblocking M1 since it is clear the LTP issue will take longer to unravel. Whilst aufs was initially thought to be a possible cause, it wasn’t the issue.
  • We are working around the autobuilder centos8 issue which is an issue with the upstream centos kernel where syscalls were backported in the latest version and don’t work properly.
  • We have a 10th anniversary T-shirt and some other Yocto Project items (hoody, stickers, mugs etc.) now available at https://yoctoproject.org/shop (EU and Americas sources)
  • The multiconfig changes in bitbake continue to cause problems, we still need simpler test cases to reproduce issues rather than huge builds. The existing patches seem to fix some workloads and break others. Richard is trying to fix but trying to fix autobuilder issues and other problems and these are slow builds to debug.
  • Intermittent autobuilder issues continue to occur and continue to be at record high levels. You can see the list of failures we’re continuing to see by searching for the “AB-INT” tag in bugzilla: https://bugzilla.yoctoproject.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=AB-INT

We are working to identify the load pattern on the infrastructure that seems to trigger these.
