I ran make -j5 ptestlong and the compilation has been stuck on this screen for over 1 hour:

[dochtml] [thematic_] dumping object inventory... done
[dochtml] [thematic_] build succeeded.
[dochtml] [thematic_] The HTML pages are in ../inst/share/doc/sage/html/en/thematic_tutorials.
[dochtml] Build finished. The built documents can be found in /home/user/sagemath/inst/share/doc/sage/html/en/thematic_tutorials
[dochtml] Elapsed time: 1729.2 seconds.
[dochtml] Done building the documentation!

Everything on the screen is static except for the blinking cursor at the end after the last line.

I know the process is still running because ps -ef | grep -i make shows that the process has been running for nearly 6 hours now.

  • Has the build frozen or is this what i should expect from running make -j5 ptestlong?

I would just kill it. No idea.

And if it has finished building doc, then the rest should be good to go as well.

It never recovered. Not sure what happened but at the 6 hour mark, I decided to stop it by force.

There are some rare cases where an error in the documentation build can cause the docbuild to hang, due to the lackluster error handling in the multiprocessing module.
