Why buildbot SVN checkouts fail

Ah! This is the one that's messing up. Could someone take a look at
this and see why it's failing? It doesn't even seem to be getting to
the "svn" checkout.

Hi Bill,

[sorry I was not subscribed to llvm-testresults, and noticed this only now]

This is a buildbot bug apparently, see
http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/284 and http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/255.

You can fix this on the buildbot *slave* by editing your buildbot.tac
file, and adding this line:
usepty = 0

I had the same problem for a buildbot I run for another project, and
after adding that line to the clients I never encountered
the problem again.
A nice side-effect of adding that line is that now the buildslave's
stdio logs have stderr lines in red.

Best regards,
--Edwin

Excellent! I added the lines. Thank you for the suggestion. :slight_smile:
