make deb fails when building Whirr - OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space

    Details

    • Type: Bug Bug
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: Major Major
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 0.3.0

      Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid). Sun JDK 1.6.0_26-b03

      Description

      During 'make deb' Whirr fails to build because the Sun JVM (running Maven) is out of Permanent Generation space (this is not heap space).
      By setting the env variable MAVEN_OPTS=-XX:MaxPermSize=128m this parameter will be used when Maven evokes the JVM and 128m seems to be sufficient PermGen space to complete the make deb (I have tested this).

      HOWEVER, setting this env variable is not enough. There needs to be a change to package.mk so debuild will 'perserve' this env variable and pass it to the (presumably) forked process where maven runs. See the debuild man pages ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES section for documentation on this.

      So, without the MAVEN_OPTS env var 'preserved' by debuild in package.mk, setting MAVEN_OPTS alone will have no affect on make deb.

      Attached is a suggested change to package.mk (just adding --preserve-envvar MAVEN_OPTS ) - not sure if this is the best way to handle this, but this is what I did locally to complete make deb on 0.3.0

      Here is the make deb output of the error:
