FS#620 - pkgadd reports a package as installed if disk space runs out while installing a prebuilt package

Hello. As mentioned here:


prt-get, possibly because of pkgadd, thinks a package is installed if disk space runs out while installing a prebuilt package.

As discussed in the comments there, it's possible that pkgadd is reporting the package as installed even though it obviously encountered errors with disk space.

The "installed" package needs to be removed and additional space freed before it can be correctly installed.

Cheers and thanks. ;)

pending release

The same holds true if the destination can't be written to, because it's mounted read-only.

Cheers, deepthought

Test case:

mkdir /var/cache/test{,-ro}
mkdir -p /var/cache/test/var/lib/pkg
touch /var/cache/test/var/lib/pkg/db
mount --bind -o ro /var/cache/test{,-ro}
mount --bind /var/cache/test{,-ro}/var/lib/pkg
pkgadd -r /var/cache/test-ro ...pkg ; echo $?
pkgadd -r /var/cache/test-ro ...pkg ; echo $?

if (archive_read_extract(archive, entry, flags) != ARCHIVE_OK) {
// If a file fails to install we just print an error message and
// continue trying to install the rest of the package.

Somehow, probably when flyspray was restored, the patch was lost. Added again.
