feisty to gutsy upgrade tool crashed

Bug #125560 reported by Mark Florian on 2007-07-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
update-manager-core (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Using update-manager-core's do-release-upgrade from within KDE, the upgrade tool crashed.

Here's the output from the tool itself:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/tmp/tmp9Ep-Mt/gutsy", line 56, in <module>
  File "/tmp/tmp9Ep-Mt/DistUpgradeControler.py", line 1255, in run
  File "/tmp/tmp9Ep-Mt/DistUpgradeControler.py", line 1237, in fullUpgrade
    if not self.doDistUpgrade():
  File "/tmp/tmp9Ep-Mt/DistUpgradeControler.py", line 769, in doDistUpgrade
    res = self.cache.commit(fprogress,iprogress)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/cache.py", line 203, in commit
    res = self.installArchives(pm, installProgress)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/cache.py", line 178, in installArchives
    res = installProgress.run(pm)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/apt/progress.py", line 213, in run
    pid = self.fork()
  File "/tmp/tmp9Ep-Mt/DistUpgradeViewKDE.py", line 227, in fork
    self.child_pid = os.fork()
OSError: [Errno 12] Cannot allocate memory

As the error suggests, all system memory (including swap) was used up by the process.

I'll attach /var/log/dist-upgrade/apt.log and /var/log/dist-upgrade/main.log separately.
