PSA for Mastodon admins Show more
If you use Docker: It seems like the new Docker image with Alpine 3.7 gives regular segmentation faults in the sidekiq process. I believe these crashes may be tracelessly devouring some unlucky sidekiq jobs.
Trying to find & confirm a solution right now. Since it seems like non-Docker instances are not affected, it shouldn't be Ruby 2.5 or gems, but something about Alpine 3.7 in particular.
For Docker users: Release candidate for the segfault fix: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases/tag/v2.3.2rc2
@noiob Please be specific. What frequent error messages? Those specific error messages like in the linked issue?
@Gargron That's about as specific as I can get, since we just got the errors after the 2.3 update and frantically tried to fix the web frontend throwing errors all the time. I didn't read any logs or anything because I don't know where to find them, I just downgraded Ruby and it went away. Might very well be an unrelated issue.
@noiob Okay, good to know. The segfaults wouldn't appear in the frontend. Seems unrelated.
I would count it as a r2. Say the last release was 2.5.21, this would be 2.5.21-r2.
@kd0bpv What does r2 stand for?
Oh, and yes, it is a new release. But that method of versioning indicates that there is no code changes, just packaging/misc changes.
@gargron they're not really immutable, -> latest, stable, ...
but 2.3.2 wouldn't be unreasonable either
@Gargron >testing in production
@Gargron I don't understand what you're talking about. Hoo-boy! I am really not going to like being a computer science major, am I?
@Reginald_Konga I was addressing people who run Mastodon on their servers, which presumes some familiriaility with the terms I was using. Don't worry, you're not expected to know all of that just because you study CompSci...
@Gargron It just seemed like my not understanding your speech was a common occurrence. That's all.
Hey, ich bin immer noch auf 2.2.0 - Sieht der rc2 fuer dich bis jetzt okay aus, oder gabs schon den ein oder anderen Schluckauf?
@walialu bist du auf Docker?
@Gargron Yo, klar!
@walialu rc2 ist in Ordnung. Aber bitte backups haben!
@Gargron Klar, ich bin zu paranoid um keine Backups zu machen! :)
@Gargron So, update ist durch, du bist n geiler Typ! Jetzt kann ich beruhigt schlafen gehen! 🐘 🐘 🐘 🐘
@Gargron I was just about to say that.
@gargron +1. I’ve seen other projects do that; if the release notes are clear then it’ll be fine
