Subject: Hangs on ptee
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 573b
When installing a module within the CPAN shell, the installation hangs if if a question is asked, other than a prerequisite question. For example if the user is asked to enter a path name. After hitting return not only does it hang but even SIGINT and SIGQUIT are ignored - the only way out is to kill ptee which stops the installation procedure. An example ptee command is: sh -c /usr/bin/perl /tmp/CPAN-Reporter-CW-K9wHoWQ1 2>&1 | /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/auto/Tee/ptee /tmp/CPAN-R... This happens on a variety of operating systems and hardware.

Yikes. I'll check into it. David

Is this happening when there is a command_timeout set? If so, could you please disable it and see if the problem goes away? Thank you, David

My value for inactivity_timeout is 300 seconds. My value for version_timeout is 15 seconds. I can't find the any reference to a field called command_timeout in CPAN/Config.pm. Maybe you meant inactivity_timeout rather than command_timeout. I changed inactivity_timeout to 0 and so far things are working better. I haven't done testing on enough platforms yet to be sure, but it is possible that is where the problem lies.

Those two are CPAN.pm config settings. I mean, have you set 'command_timeout' in your .cpanreporter/config.ini? (See CPAN::Reporter::Config for details) It's possible that there is a bad interaction between CPAN and CPAN::Reporter's timeouts. -- David

I have no reference to command_timeout in .cpanreporter/config.ini. I am still finding things are better after changing inactivity_timeout to 0 in CPAN/Config.pm - and I can't think that's a co-incidence. It may help you to find what's wrong. -Nigel

Patches in the repo swap out use of Tee and 'ptee' in favor of Capture::Tiny. After that is released to CPAN, please let me know if this issue re-occurs. As no other reports of this problem have come in, I'm downgrading the severity of the ticket. I will also mark it 'stalled' until I hear how the forthcoming version works.

Sorry, it's no better. I set command_timeout=300 in .cpanreporter/config.ini and I get the same hangs on user input, e.g. it hangs on this after I hit return. This is with 32- and 64-bit Linux on 5.12.4.

I have same problem on Ubuntu and Debian. Removing "command_timeout" helped. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net

I have latest CPAN::Reporter and Capture::Tiny. Both OS'es are run in latest VirtualBox. I can enter anything, but pressing Enter does not result in program accepting it. Input can be interrupted with Ctrl-C. -- Alexandr Ciornii, http://chorny.net
