Hi,

There are various problems shown on
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/overview?distri=opensuse&version=FTT

The most prominent is the btrfs crash on i586 filed as
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=887046

But there are various others - not affecting the staging prjs for some
unclear reason. One reason for this is that kernel on i586 is less
stable, but we have no resources to stage also i586.

Another bug is seen at - the upgrade path is now broken for a while ;(
https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/11570/modules/upgrade_select/steps/5

So don’t wonder why there are no factory updates…

Greetings, Stephan

From my point of view, factory is not broken – or not seriously broken.

I’m current running factory, and using it for this reply.

What I am seeing, is that there have been no updates to factory for around three weeks.

With the way that factory is currently working, there’s a kind of hidden factory that we don’t really see. That’s where proposed updates are tested. But they don’t get into the factory repos until they test successfully.

There a good outline of the procedure in this factory mailing list message. The procedure seems to be working pretty well, so that those of us running factory are seeing a reasonably stable system. Incidentally, that message I just cited is part of a thread on the future of tumbleweed. You can click the “Previous” and “Next” links to scroll through the thread.

So, using factory, I am still finding my system quite stable. But updates are lagging. For example, there’s a flash update for opensuse 13.1, but that has not shown up in factory and probably won’t until the current problems are resolved.

Well, that’s why he says it is broken, because the factory does not
produce :wink:


Cheers / Saludos,

(from 13.1 x86_64 “Bottle” (Minas Tirith))

JFYI, Factory got published last night (still in the middle of the update myself, so can’t say of the state post-upgrade)

Thank you. I guess I’ll have a big update tomorrow morning.
