equo, sulfur -> bad marshal data [Solved]

Postby thenthenio » Mon Nov 02, 2009 21:53

One week ago or so sulfur updated 790 packages (and downloaded 3.8GB!!!).
My system did not have any problems until now that I noticed that the update applet shows as a wrong way street sign.
Sulfur was not loading so I tried equo and these are the results:
Code: Select all
# equo                   
Traceback (most recent call last):       
  File "/usr/bin/equo", line 25, in <module>
    SysSettings = SystemSettings()         
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/libraries/entropy/core/__init__.py", line 37, in __new__                                                                               
    instance.init_singleton(*args, **kwds)                                     
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/libraries/entropy/core/settings/base.py", line 62, in init_singleton                                                                   
    from entropy.cache import EntropyCacher                                     
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/libraries/entropy/cache.py", line 21, in <module>     
    from entropy.misc import TimeScheduled, Lifo                               
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/libraries/entropy/misc.py", line 19, in <module>       
    import urllib2                                                             
ValueError: bad marshal data

Code: Select all
# sulfur
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/sulfur/sulfur-client.py", line 24, in <module>
    from sulfur import SulfurApplication
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/sulfur/sulfur/__init__.py", line 40, in <module>
    from entropy.misc import TimeScheduled, ParallelTask
  File "/usr/lib/entropy/libraries/entropy/misc.py", line 19, in <module>
    import urllib2
ValueError: bad marshal data

No matter if with or without command line options!!!
I synced Sabayon overlay and I emerged entropy, equo and sulfur.
Prior to emerging version was 0.99.3.1, now it is 0.99.3.6 but the result is exactly the same.
It seems it does not depend on equo sulfur or entropy, it is something due to an external cause.
Python is 2.6.
Running 20 days old fresh SL5 install x86_54 Gnome (but with KDE also installed.

Does anybody have any idea?

Many thanks.
Mauro

Hardware instabilities.
urllib2 is a Python module, not Entropy related.
Try to reinstall dev-lang/python if possible (if you can't, download the package for your architecture from sabayon.org/packages and unpack it (the .tbz2 is a .tar.bz2) to / => tar xvjf your-file.tbz2 -C / ).

Ciao Fabio,
I'm honored to get help directly from you!
What do you mean with hardware instabilities?
Yesterday the only thing I did was emerging entropy, equo and sulfur but, after that, they were not working as before.
I did nothing more, I did not reinstalled python.
Today, just after logging in, I saw the Sun icon of the notification applet and so I understood entropy was working (124 packages updates were pending), in fact from the command line equo was responding as usual!
So, I'm disoriented, I can't understand what happened...

Grazie Fabio anyway.
Mauro

most likely a minor fs corruption caused by an power outage?
my bet ... my guess ...

dev-lang/python-2.4.3-r1: gives "ValueError: bad marshal data" for (almost?) every module
linux is free, the expertise to harness it is not!
you don't make so much money selling open source software!
You make MORE money USING it, just like google!
