* bug#55587: `guix import texlive PKG` fails with signal 11, no output

Hello,

The guix 'texlive' package importer is not working with any package, as
far as I can tell. It does *some* legwork, managing to figure out the
correct URI of the package, but then errors out with signal 11.

Having had a look at previous bug reports, it seems this "signal 11"
thing is not new (e.g., bug#28303), but in any case I am not seeing any
output after the error (unlike what seemed to be happening in bug#28303)

Example:

hugo@hp-guix ~$ guix import texlive cite
command "svn" "export" "--non-interactive" "--trust-server-cert" "-r"
"59745"
"svn://www.tug.org/texlive/tags/texlive-2021.3/Master/texmf-dist/doc/latex/cite/"
"/tmp/guix-directory.09UnsN/doc/latex/cite/" failed with signal 11 guix
import: error: failed to import package 'cite'

Best regards,
Hugo

Jack, Hugo: What does “type -P svn” say?

Does the bug occur within ‘guix shell subversion’ as shown above?

TIA,

Well, I feel kind of silly now, after actually installing subversion the
command works as expected :)

But I suppose the silent failure is still something that could/should be
improved.

Thanks,
Hugo

Same for me, and I feel equally silly :)

+1 for this. Maybe some day we'll have have guile-svn, but until then an 
error message would be fine.

Best,
Jack

You mentioned an error report from Guix:

  command "svn" "export" "--non-interactive" "--trust-server-cert" "-r" "59745" "svn://www.tug.org/texlive/tags/texlive-2021.3/Master/texmf-dist/doc/latex/cite/" "/tmp/guix-directory.09UnsN/doc/latex/cite/" failed with signal 11

To me that means that an “svn” command was indeed found in $PATH but
that it segfaulted.

What did “type -P svn” return?  Perhaps there was an “svn” command
coming from the host distro, like /usr/bin/svn?

Or am I missing something?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Hi,

I thought I'd replied to this.

I think you might be barking up the wrong tree (or, likely, that 
there are multiple trees here).  I could reproduce the segfault on 
Guix System and encouraged Jack to file this bug.

It's not foreign-distro-related.  The process actually segfaulting 
is Guix, not svn, possibly due to a missing svn.

Kind regards,

T G-R

Indeed, I think Tobias is on the right track here.
However, I can no longer reproduce the `signal 11` error

To answer Ludò, though,

> What did “type -P svn” return?

Before I installed subversion: nothing. Now it shows the correct path to
svn.

> Perhaps there was an “svn” command coming from the host distro, like
> /usr/bin/svn?

Nope, this is on Guix System.

Best wishes,
Hugo

I don’t think so; the error message that was reported is:

  command "svn" "export" "--non-interactive" "--trust-server-cert" "-r" "59745" "svn://www.tug.org/texlive/tags/texlive-2021.3/Master/texmf-dist/doc/latex/cite/" "/tmp/guix-directory.09UnsN/doc/latex/cite/" failed with signal 11

It’s a message from ‘report-invoke-error’ in (guix build utils).  It’s
really svn that’s segfaulting.

Should we close and reopen if/when we have more info?

Thanks,
Ludo’.

Maybe not!  I can trigger it reproducibly:

Fixed in Guile commit 56b1ea9002d2d3967b597aa0ee7595e815b21f23.

Back to the original issue Jack and Hugo reported: you need to add ‘svn’
to $PATH to make things work.  :-)

Thanks,
