OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy

It's definately being caused by the 3Q-2006, because i moved it to be sure. With it in place not even --help worked.
Any clue what might cause this?

Mod Edit: mad sticky and changed the topic from 'portage fails at global updates with errno 16' to 'portage fails - errno 16 Device or resource busy' - tomk

Same problem here.

No chance of syncing again or emerge an older portage :(

EDIT:

I overlooked

before. Emerge works when the file is moved.

Come on guys there, yours comments are welcome. :D

I had the same error too. I solved moving package.keywords and package.unmask in another place then type
emerge -pv xxxx (where xxx the name of one packet dbus or nmap for example) and then put back these files on thier original path.

Try...

I got away with this one by commenting the lines having "kazehakase" in /etc/portage/package.use.

Hope that helps.
Have a pleasant time ahead.

I had this same problem. I simply got rid of this speedup I'd installed previously : http://gentoo-wiki.com/TIP_speed_up_portage_with_cdb , and then it worked...

Hope it helps

yes, problem is that 4Q-2006 file is saying about moving packages which are included in portage.keywords or portage.*

- so you need move portage.keyword and portage.* file somewhere else
- then run emerge --sync
- move portage.keywords ..... back
- and it;s working as before

Thanks, I got it working again, but it happens again every time I do emerge --sync, forcing me to re-untar the portage tarball.

in my case syncing again was not an option, as running emerge <anything> was non-functional, including just typing 'emerge'. anyways, renamed package.keywords real quick, ran emerge with no options, moved package.keywords back, all ok. haven't tried another sync, just went to work updating software.

I also get a OSError: [Errno 16] but in a different context
I cannot unmerge packages anymore:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 6529, in <module>
    retval = emerge_main()
  File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 6516, in emerge_main
    myopts, myaction, myfiles, spinner)
  File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 5707, in action_depclean
    "unmerge", cleanlist, ldpath_mtimes)
  File "/usr/bin/emerge", line 4340, in unmerge
    vartree=vartree, ldpath_mtimes=ldpath_mtimes)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage.py", line 4304, in unmerge
    ldpath_mtimes=ldpath_mtimes)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage.py", line 7390, in unmerge
    self._unmerge_pkgfiles(pkgfiles, others_in_slot)
  File "/usr/lib64/portage/pym/portage.py", line 7632, in _unmerge_pkgfiles
    os.rmdir(obj)
OSError: [Errno 16] Device or resource busy: '/usr'


I don't know what cases the error but I looked into pym/portage.py:
Code:

         for obj in mydirs:
            try:
               if bsd_chflags:
                  lstatobj = os.lstat(obj)
                  if lstatobj.st_flags != 0:
                     bsd_chflags.lchflags(obj, 0)
                  parent_name = os.path.dirname(obj)
                  # Use normal stat/chflags for the parent since we want to
                  # follow any symlinks to the real parent directory.
                  pflags = os.stat(parent_name).st_flags
                  if pflags != 0:
                     bsd_chflags.chflags(parent_name, 0)
               try:
                  os.rmdir(obj) ### <----------------- THIS IS LINE 7632 <------------------
               finally:
                  if bsd_chflags and pflags != 0:
                     # Restore the parent flags we saved before unlinking
                     bsd_chflags.chflags(parent_name, pflags)
               show_unmerge("<<<", "", "dir", obj)
            except EnvironmentError, e:
               if e.errno not in (errno.ENOENT,
                  errno.EEXIST, errno.ENOTEMPTY,
                  errno.ENOTDIR):
                  raise
               if e.errno != errno.ENOENT:
                  show_unmerge("---", "!empty", "dir", obj)
               del e


So there it does catches EnvironmentErrors (and thus also OSErrors) but raises them again if they do not have the errno explicitly listed which are:

  • errno.ENOENT - No such file or directory
  • errno.EEXIST - File exists
  • errno.ENOTEMPTY - Directory not empty
  • errno.ENOTDIR - Not a directory

(taken from the python docs)

adding
errno.EBUSY - Device or resource busy
to the list solved the symptom (the inability to unmerge stuff) for me but I think it doesn't really solve the problem that the device is busy.
But I have to admit that I don't really understand the process of unmerging so maybe not catching the errno.EBUSY maybe really is a bug. I leave that for others to decide.
