Subject [jira] [Created] (SVN-4815) Svnadmin fails on AIX
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2019 07:15:00 GMT
Reshma V Kumar created SVN-4815:

             Summary: Svnadmin fails on AIX
                 Key: SVN-4815
             Project: Subversion
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: libsvn_subr
    Affects Versions: 1.10.x
         Environment: OS- AIX 7.2
            Reporter: Reshma V Kumar
         Attachments: subversion-1.10.4-io.patch

I am testing subversion 1.10.4 on AIX 7.2

# oslevel -s

While executing the following command , it gives error.

# svnadmin create --fs-type fsfs /reshma/svn
svnadmin: E000009: Can't write '/reshma/svn/db/current' atomically
svnadmin: E000009: Can't flush file '/reshma/svn/db' to disk: A file descriptor does not refer
to an open file.

This is because in AIX, fsync called on a directory returns errno=EBADF which makes subversions/libsvn_subr/io.c:svn_io_flush_to_disk

To fix this, I created a patch. Here I am checking if the platform is AIX.
