svn commit mail python stackdump

Postby bramr » Fri Dec 03, 2010 9:54 am

Hi all,

My DS210+ hosts some svn repos. CLients use ssh+svn for access.
I want to get commit-mail running.
Packages installed (amongst others):

Code: Select all

ipkg install python      # version 2.5-1
ipkg install svn           # version 1.6.15-1
ipkg install svn-py      # version 1.6.15-1
ipkg install py26-trac  # version 1.12.1-1 - yes, also running tracd  :D

python mail script: ... /
with config ... nf.example modified to my wishes.
File <repo-path>/hooks/post-commit:

Code: Select all

export PYTHONPATH=/opt/lib/svn-python
/home/svnsw/bin/ commit "$REPOS" "$REV" /home/svnsw/bin/mailer.conf

Note: I modified to full paths, and added PYTHONPATH, otherwise python fails to load the svn bindings.

Test the mailer from the command line results in a python stack dump:

Code: Select all

> ./post-commit /home/svnsw/sw/zz_try_app/svnroot 5
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/svnsw/bin/", line 1436, in <module>
  File "/opt/lib/svn-python/svn/", line 281, in run_app
    return func(application_pool, *args, **kw)
  File "/home/svnsw/bin/", line 101, in main
    repos = Repository(repos_dir, revision, pool)
  File "/home/svnsw/bin/", line 1122, in __init__
    self.root_this = self.get_root(rev)
  File "/home/svnsw/bin/", line 1136, in get_root
    root = self.roots[rev] = svn.fs.revision_root(self.fs_ptr, rev, self.pool)
  File "/opt/lib/svn-python/libsvn/", line 244, in svn_fs_revision_root
    return apply(_fs.svn_fs_revision_root, args)
TypeError: argument number 2:

I am stuck...
Can this be caused by a mistake in the mailer.conf file?
Some version incompatibility of installed packages?
Any suggestion how to fix this?

Thanks for any help, Bram.

Problem solved.

Somewhere around the line, I noticed package "python" requires python25,
while package "svn-py" requires python26.
So, the script invokes python 2.5.x (using the regular "python")
while it loads svn bindings based on python 2.6.x.
I considered that risky, so reinstalled all, but only the packages
based on python 2.6.x and not the regular python.
To obtain a "python" command, manually created synlink:

Code: Select all

ln -s python2.6 /opt/bin/python

Python stackdump is gone now.
Mailer works.

Can you help me with this? What are the steps for making SVN send an email on code commits? I couldn't understand your explanation in your post.
