Subject Re: Buildbots update
Date Fri, 19 Feb 2016 23:11:26 GMT
Steps 1-4 first delete the "source" directory, do a fresh SVN checkout
(not update) into "source", delete the "build" directory, and copy
"source" to "build". The build is then run in "build". This was the
only robust way to get it working and fix all the errors and timeouts
that were happening earlier. I think that's confusing you here.

On linux64-nightly I've changed the buildbot script to cache downloads
across builds. In 9 builds, it hasn't helped one bit: all 14 missing
tarballs must have failed every single time.

The only thing that made a difference, getting it reduced from 15
missing tarballs to 14, is fixing the upstream URL for vigra in
main/external_deps.lst. This tells me it's access to SourceForge that
is the problem here.

In r1731307 I patched
main/solenv/bin/ to log the HTTP
status line when a download fails, and it finally showed what's really

download from
failed (501 Protocol scheme 'https' is not supported
(LWP::Protocol::https not installed))

I've asked infra to get LWP::Protocol::https installed on all the
buildbots and they're working on it.

We also need to update our build instructions to install it when building.
