For future commenters:

TLDR: | From source build (slow) | Pre-built binaries (fast)

Unlike the original community version, this repo builds ceph from source. Ceph is a large, complicated project so this takes several hours on a good build server.

To get a similar experience to how community/ceph worked (pre-built binaries) use ceph-bin instead.

@pbazaah thank you I used usb stick as tmp to install it) And before I had received messages as below: " No such file or directory"

The upstream recommends 40G minimum, 60G to be safe.

I had a 26 GB free space and after 92% of building to get out of space. How much space is needed to build this?

I am aware, if you feel like, you can strip out the stack trace and add it as a comment, either here or on this issue:

Beyond that, you can fix your problem right now but using the prebuilt binary packages:

Otherwise, I am planning on investigating this a bit this weekend.

I try update manjaro with Package manager and i also have an error related to osd_legacy_options.h for

/var/tmp/pamac-build-myUserName/ceph/src/ceph-17.2.5/src/common/options/legacy_config_opts.h:7:10: fatal error: osd_legacy_options.h: No such file or directory

If you have the chance, could you pull out the complete compile error stack trace for that error and post it on that issue (or here).

In the mean time, you could try another compile as typically the issue is intermittent.

v17.2.5 has been released, and Archlinux is finally on the current Ceph release again!

Its been an interesting couple months, and I've definitely learned a lot about CMake, but I'll probably be taking a break from pushing releases now, until after the new year, serious bug fixes excluded.

Yes. Quincy doesn't support leveldb anymore. See

You can show this in post_upgrade().

So, I'm quite likely to release 17.2.5-1 this weekend.

I did hit one strange issue during tests (see below) but both initializing a new cluster, and upgrading from v16 work.

On my v16 upgrade, I encountered a segfault in a mon, due to using leveldb as a kv_backend, which has been deprecated since at least Jewel and is not supported in Quincy.

I have no idea why, the whole test is scripted so I didn't run something weird on one of them.

Regardless, I strongly encourage anyone that runs a cluster to follow the below instructions before you start upgrading monitors.

Ensure mons use kv_backend rocksdb

During testing I encountered a mon that was using leveldb instead of rocksdb. This is super weird, as leveldb was deprecated back in v10... and this test cluster was installed with v15... so WTF.

cat /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-$(hostname -s)/kv_backend

This should report: rocksdb.


If it instead reports leveldb you need to run the following:

    # These assume you name your mons after your hostnames. If not, adjust accordingly
    mID=$(hostname -s)
    MONMAP=$(mktemp monmap.${mID}.XXXXX)

    systemctl stop ${SERVICE} && sleep 2

    ceph mon getmap -o ${MONMAP}
    mv /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-${mID} /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-${mID}.bak
    ceph-mon -i ${mID} --mkfs --monmap ${MONMAP} --keyring /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-${mID}.bak/keyring
    chown -R ceph:ceph /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-${mID}

    systemctl start ${SERVICE}

Once you confirm that:

  1. The mon is running and happy,
  2. The kv_backend now reports rocksdb

You can remove the backup monmap:

rm -rf /var/lib/ceph/mon/ceph-$(hostname -s).bak
