Thanx for the notice! It indeed had a crash. OS not harmed.
I'm currently performing a sanity check on the nightly VMs.

In the meantime web and rsync services are available to get the last nightly:

Nightly server is down. I'm currently investigating the case.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

So what was that about security updates? :mrgreen:

Every time I perform a kernel/headers update, on the nightly VM's host, something needs to be fixed (e.g. rsync server stops auto-starting, VBox service fails even after vboxdrv re-setup, no-ip client needs some tweaking, etc...).

As long as I have the nightly VMs backed up, I don't worry much, however the anxiety level increases.
Since the last server h/w change, I have an extra disk. I am thinking of replicating the current server disk to that spare one, to be more safe.
"More safe?!?"
Given Murphy's Law of Data Loss, the probability of a hard-disk crash increases with the number of days since the drive was last backed up.
For the "nightly builds" server this probability is currently 1. :)

Hmm.. I wasn't aware kernel upgrades came under the heading of "security update".. :wink: :lol:

Anyway, good to hear you're on top of it.

Due to the increased frequency of "internal compiler error: Segmentation fault" issue, for both Windows and Linux nightly builds, I will proceed in running a comprehensive memory test on the TerraStorage server, to at least exclude the case of physical memory issues.

On that matter a server downtime is planned as follows:
Server Shutdown: 5/Apr/2015 21:00 (UTC)
Server Startup: 7/Apr/2015 21:00(UTC)
(following server shutdown, the next cumulative update, for Windows and Linux nightly build, will be available Wednesday morning)

This means that following server shutdown for Windows and Linux
  • Oolite update (i.e. rsync service) will be unavailable,
  • nightly build releases will freeze at Sunday's nightly build
  • alternative links, for Sunday's nightly build full download only, can be found below:
    • Linux package (32bit x86 distros): Oolite-Linux x86
    • Linux package (64bit x86_64/AMD64 distros): Oolite-Linux x86_64/AMD64
    • Windows (32bit): Oolite-Windows x86
    • Windows (64bit): Oolite-Windows x64
Mac nightly releases will continue to be updated (being built outside of TerraStorage) and will be available at:
http://oolite.org/nightly/mac/

Thank you for your patience.


EDIT 2015-04-05: Updated with alternative links for Windows and Linux Sunday's nightly.

EDIT 2015-04-08: Unfortunately the memory test showed that all memory banks were faulty. I managed to find some spares, but the memory test showed that one bit, one single annoying bit in a pool of billions, is faulty (if life is a simulation, someone is really having fun with me). Anyhow, for the time being, I am running the server with this known defect.

EDIT 2015-04-09: Windows and Linux alternative links have been disabled.

A different mishap for terrastorage will keep the server down for a couple of days more.

Terrastorage down due to extensive memory check. Read here.

EDIT (2016/05/14):
Test completed successfully.
