Looking at a strace
, this is because libGAP installs a SIGCHLD
signal handler which interferes with Python's multiprocessing.
spkg: http://boxen.math.washington.edu/home/jdemeyer/spkg/libgap-4.5.7.p2.spkg
(signal handler fix only, see https://bitbucket.org/vbraun/libgap/commits/3f4ebd64fc1219858802173cd86b7910040fef36)

I removed the SIGCHLD handler already, you just need to review #14039.
Close this ticket as duplicate.

Replying to jdemeyer:
Not really. I'd like to fix this as soon as possible, which means without waiting for #14187+#14014+#14039.
Well tough, I would like those tickets reviewed as soon as possible because its an immense maintenance burden for me to carry around a patch that rebases all matrix groups.

Volker: you are missing an entry in SPKG.txt
for this version. Should I add it manually or will you do it using your scripts?
comment:9 follow-up: ↓ 10 Changed 8 years ago by
I've added the SPKG entry in http://www.stp.dias.ie/~vbraun/Sage/spkg/libgap-4.6.2.p0.spkg

Replying to vbraun:
I've added the SPKG entry in http://www.stp.dias.ie/~vbraun/Sage/spkg/libgap-4.6.2.p0.spkg
...which is the wrong version. This ticket is about libgap-4.5.7.p2.
comment:11 Changed 8 years ago by
Then I suggest we close this one as superseded by #14039.
comment:12 Changed 8 years ago by
Volker, I don't understand what you're trying to accomplish here. Acting like you're doing now is not helping. As I already said, this is an important issue which cannot wait for #14039.
I can totally understand your frustration that nobody is reviewing #14014, but this ticket shouldn't suffer from that. If you want reviewers for #14014, you could either ask David Roe (which is listed as reviewer) or ask sage-devel.
comment:13 follow-up: ↓ 14 Changed 8 years ago by
I don't understand why it is an issue to fix this blocker before sage-5.9 is released. We are currently at beta0, so it seems there will be at least 1-2 months until this needs to be fixed.
comment:14 in reply to: ↑ 13 Changed 8 years ago by
Sorry, wanted to say: I don't understand why it is an issue to fix this blocker long before sage-5.9 is released. We are currently at beta0, so it seems there will be at least 1-2 months until this needs to be fixed. If #14039 isn't reviewed by rc0 we can talk.
comment:15 follow-up: ↓ 16 Changed 8 years ago by
Why wait for rc0 to fix this? We know the problem and we know the fix.
Imagine we don't fix this before sage-5.9.rc0. The problem on this ticket is causing random strange failures, so for every multiprocessing-related problem that people report, we would need to check whether this ticket fixes it.

And the fix is at #14039.

I'll be happy to tell every one of them that this is their own fault for not reviewing #14039.
Maybe David can tell us how long it'll take...

comment:18 Changed 8 years ago by
FWIW, I've built and tested Sage 5.9.beta0 from scratch with this spkg without issues, but I didn't have problems before either. (Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS x86_64)

Does Sage support libGAP child processes? Otherwise, that feature could simply be removed from libGAP.
