Subject: Investigating Cirrus CI FreeBSD failures
Date: Fri, 20 May 2022 20:38:53 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I spent a bit of time investigating the Git Cirrus-CI failures on FreeBSD.
It seems something goes wrong with the Perl installation, as most failures 
are in, and the error messages are: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.32/mach/CORE/ Undefined symbol "strerror_l@FBSD_1.6"

The first instance is in t9001.6. (See for example [1]).

I know next to nothing about Perl or FreeBSD, but simply changing our image
to FreeBSD 13.0 makes all failures in t9001 disappear [2]:

diff --git a/.cirrus.yml b/.cirrus.yml
index 0d94d89f6c..d1ea14362f 100644
--- a/.cirrus.yml
+++ b/.cirrus.yml
@@ -9,7 +9,7 @@ freebsd_12_task:
-    image_family: freebsd-12-2
+    image_family: freebsd-13-0
     memory: 2G
     pkg install -y gettext gmake perl5 vim

Is this something that we should do ? Or should we stick to FreeBSD 12
and try to debug this installation problem ?
