Bug Description

Binary package hint: xulrunner-1.9.2

I logged into pbuilder

$ apt-get install xulrunner-dev

Dpkg then hangs at

Setting up xulrunner-1.9.2 ( ...

With xulrunner-bin process taking up all system resources:

29774 root 20 0 33784 112 32 R 98 0.0 3:48.10 xulrunner-bin

I then kill it and get:

Setting up xulrunner-1.9.2 ( ...
dpkg: error processing xulrunner-1.9.2 (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 143

I've left it xulrunner-bin running for 3 hours on my quite modern laptop so there is definatly something strange going on.

Please advice if you need any further information.

Is this still happening (with xulrunner-2.0, as 1.9.2 is going away)?

I'm experiencing a similar issue and I've gotten gdb to show where xulrunner-bin is stuck:

Traced back to The gdb output shows very clearly that jemalloc is re-entring code that's not reentrant on 10.04.2 amd64.

Chris Coulson - It is still happening with xulrunner-1.9.2, which is part of Lucid, which is supported up to 13.04, which makes it really hard to provide builds for LTS. It's been more than a year, and I got bitten by this bug again.

Also happening for me with 11.04 amd64 when trying to pdebuild a package that depends on xulrunner-1.9.2-dev in a 11.04 amd64 cowbuilder. Note that the bugzilla bug report linked from comment #6 links to another launchpad bug, #333624 (which unfortunately has been set to invalid. Should it be reopened for xulrunner-1.9.2-dev?)

Nothing should build-dep on xulrunner any more, horay for fast releases.

If it's broken in pbuilder for you, can you test in sbuild please?
