the aggregate plugin mashes the
title of an aggregated post into a filename. This results in long filenames. I have hit a filesystem length limitation on several occasions. Some (ab)uses of RSS, e.g., twitter,
generate long titles. Especially once you throw escaping into the mix:
It would also appear this abrubtly terminates aggregate processing (if not ikiwiki itself). Only after moving my test repo to
/tmp to shorten the filename did I see newer RSS feeds (from a totally different source) picked up.
I have to wonder what filesystem you have there where 147 characters is a long filename. Ikiwiki already uses
POSIX::pathconfon the srcdir to look up
_PC_NAME_MAXto see if the filename is too long, and shortens it, so it seems that, in additional to having a rather antique long filename limit, your system also doesn't properly expose it via pathconf. Not sure what ikiwiki can do here. --Joey
This is an ext4 filesystem with default settings (which appears to mean 256 bytes for pathnames). Despite the error saying file name, it's definitely a path issue since moving my test repo to
/home/jon/wd/mine/wwwhides the problem. I note the following comment in
# Make sure that the file name isn't too long. # NB: This doesn't check for path length limits.
