poudriere on 12.2-RELEASE failed.

Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a 12.2-RELEASE poudriere jail on a 12.2-RELEASE host
2. Run 'poudriere bulk' specifying the jail and a port list including

Actual result: build failure as shown in attached log snippet

Don't see in log installation of the rust.

Why old icu? Quarterly?

A (hopefully useful?) snippet of the rust log is attached now. Note that this is
from a build a few days earlier using ports rev 553560.  Let me know if you need
more - the whole thing is 7.5 MB.

> Why old icu? Quarterly?

Nope, I don't do quarterly.  It's the version I got when I did 'svn update' a
couple of weeks ago.

The actual error is somewhere within "..." (stripped). Provide full log if you can't locate it.

Compress or upload to a pastebin. Base system has xz(1) and zstd(1). For example,

$ fetch http://beefy6.nyi.freebsd.org/data/121amd64-default/554788/logs/firefox-82.0.3,2.log
$ zstd --ultra -22 firefox-82.0.3,2.log
$ xz -9ek firefox-82.0.3,2.log
$ du -Ah firefox*.log*
 13M    firefox-82.0.3,2.log
233K    firefox-82.0.3,2.log.xz
243K    firefox-82.0.3,2.log.zst

Replace "firefox" with "thunderbird" or any other package you want old build logs for. Maybe compare those logs with local ones to get an idea why the build may fail for you.

Could be a number of reasons: faulty hardware, kernel bug, broken lang/rust, aggressive optimizations, FFI ABI mismatch, etc. Find where core(5) file was dumped and use lldb(1) (or gdb(1)) to get a stacktrace from it. Make another build and get a stacktrace again. If each stacktrace looks different then it's likely due to hardware/kernel.
Comment 10 Steve Peurifoy 2020-11-10 22:56:57 UTC
OK, appears I'll have to change poudriere.conf to preserve wrkdirs
and my build machine is currently attempting to build chromium.

Experience suggests that it will be a while, but I'll do this when
I can.
Comment 11 Steve Peurifoy 2020-11-12 15:18:59 UTC
So after setting 'SAVE_WRKDIR=yes' and firing off another build, I got...

a successful build of thunderbird.

For a number of reasons, I seriously doubt that this is hardware.
The one difference that stands out to me is that in the two failed
instances, builds of other ports were happening on other cores of the
machine.  In the successful build, it was tbird all by itself.
Sample size too small to be conclusive though obviously.  Nothing
suspicious in dmesg/syslog at the time of the failures other than
the actual signal 11 notifications.

This will have to wait until I get a repeat occurrence unless someone
else trips over the same thing.

Comment 12 Steve Peurifoy 2021-04-19 15:42:55 UTC
Since everything has changed and I can no longer duplicate this, it makes no sense to leave it open.
