Description Martin Birgmeier 2019-07-28 06:48:50 UTC
- FreeBSD 12.0-RELEASE-p7 #4 r349733M amd64 (and i386)
- rebuilding many packages using portmaster (due to the recent change from gcc8 to gcc9)
- letting the system run overnight
- machines do not have a direct internet connection and no proxy is configured

- at about 3:30 a.m., portmaster fails because pkg cannot get a lock on its database

- This probably happens while downloading vuln.xml and checking against it - maybe the database is already locked while the system is (unsuccessfully) trying to download vuln.xml?
Comment 1 Martin Birgmeier 2019-07-28 07:40:46 UTC
just noted bug #232350
Comment 2 Martin Birgmeier 2019-07-28 07:42:46 UTC
Created a new periodic.conf, hope it will work:

[0]# cat /etc/periodic.conf 
# $MBi$

# disable nightly pkg checks if portmaster is running
# https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=239488
# https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232350

if /bin/ps -axwww | /usr/bin/grep -q '[p]ortmaster'

Are commands allowed in this file?

Thanks Martin. This is the same issue as bug 232350 so we'll close this as a duplicate.

Your solution in comment 2 is effectively the same (implemented slightly differently) as bug 232350 comment 22
