existing /var/tmp/fatsam.test breaks the test suite

Bug Description

We're getting serious PQM downtime because of failures in the test suite caused by the fact that a fatsam.test directory already exists.

It may make sense to stop using a hardcoded directory and instead generate the name.

Stuart Bishop (stub) wrote :

We can't generate the name due to the mechanics of the config system (the path is read from the config file, not generated at runtime, and changing this would introduce a whole host of other issues such as how to tell the suprocess what it should be using, how to test that read-from-the-config file actually works when the test suites don't do that, etc.)

The LibrianTestSetup should nuke it if it exists.

At a glance, this hasn't been fixed yet. Whose job is it?

Stuart says it doesn't happen very often, which means that it's not a particularly high priority.

Changed in launchpad:
status: New → Accepted

Plus, the fact that PQM now runs tests in a chroot should prevent it from happening altogether.

I thought spiv said he'd look into this. spiv?

I believe this part of LibrarianTestSetup means this was already fixed:

    def setUpRoot(self):
        if os.path.isdir(self.root):
        os.makedirs(self.root, 0700)

status: Confirmed → Fix Released
