Status on the Stretch release

Postby None1975 » 2017-04-15 13:23

Hi. This is a brief status. First off, a list of items with progress:
* Secure boot support: We got a signature from Microsoft on our shim bootloader.
* OpenSSL transition: Done.
* MySQL -> MariaDB transition: Done.
* gcc-5 removal: Done.
* RC bugs (key packages): We went from 150 to 40 RC bugs (since 2017-02-04).
* The stretch-backports suite now exists.
* DSA have successfully upgraded several servers including one buildd for all architectures except for arm{el,hf}.
* We are almost done with the "Before the freeze" part of the release checklist (just missing some buildds being upgraded to stretch).

Then we got some items that are WIP or where we are stalled:
* DSA have upgraded a arm{el,hf} buildd to stretch, but it fails to boot. At the current time, the cause is not known.
* Secure boot: We are still waiting for the FTP-masters to add signing support in DAK (#821051).
* We still got 40 RC bugs in key packages and we are getting further and further between fixes.
* We got some pending reviews of the release-notes from the kernel team and d-i.
* We have done some of the binNMUs for updating "Built-Using" headers,
but we are not done with all of them yet.
* We still have some pending bugs about issues for upgrades from jessie to stretch.

Just a note:

While the release update announcement mentions stretch-backports, it's still not quite ready.

See https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a ... 00010.html for details.

A Big Thanks to everyone who works on Debian! I never cease to be impressed by the extent to which the Debian community goes to perform a methodical, systematic release process that always results in the best possible Debian. I really don't care how long it takes. Botched up quickly is not an option. 8)
Nobody would ever ask questions If everyone possessed encyclopedic knowledge of the man pages.

After upgrading from jessie to stretch, my system worked properly until reboot at which time the database server wasn't running.

Investigating I found
Code: Select all
# /etc/init.d/mysql start
was terminating at:

Code: Select all
# /etc/init.d/mysql start
+ set -e
+ set -u
+ test -x /usr/bin/mysqld_safe
+ exit 0


mysqld_safe does not exist on my system and I can't locate the package in stretch that supplies it using the normal methods.

Code: Select all
# updatedb
# locate mysqld_safe
/etc/mysql/conf.d/mysqld_safe_syslog.cnf
# apt list --installed |grep mysql

WARNING: apt does not have a stable CLI interface. Use with caution in scripts.

I opted to replace /etc/init.d/mysql and /etc/mysql/my.cnf with the distribution versions. However, this didn't permit mysqld (mariadb) to start:

# mysql
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2 "No such file or directory")



The problem cleared up upon reboot.

Looking forward to it. Although running Neon on my laptop for the last few weeks has been a fairly positive experience getting back to Sid will be great :)

edit: meh. Decided I did wanna play, blew away Neon and installed Sid directly from mini iso. Was kinda cool to get to Unstable without going through Testing :mrgreen:
we see things not as they are, but as we are.
