Random failure to find bash on Windows/Cygwin slave


    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Open
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Unresolved
    • Component/s: cygpath-plugin
    • Labels:
    • Environment:
      Hudson 1.383
      Master: Ubuntu, glassfish
      Slave: Windows XP, Cygwin, running via JNLP

      It looks like either cygpath sometimes does not return the right information, or Hudson does not use the cygpath information to find /bin/bash. The log snippet below shows a few things:

      • Timing - It found bash twice within 10 seconds, and then the 3rd time it failed to find it
      • When it worked, Hudson called C:\cygwin\bin\bash. When it failed, Hudson called /bin/bash. This is what makes me think that it didn't use the cygpath value

      I found one thread in the forums which suggested just using bash instead of /bin/bash in the shell environment variable. Would that take care of something like this?

      The two success cases:

      09:56:19  $ C:\cygwin\bin\cygpath -w /bin/bash
      09:56:19  [spectrum_tap2] $ C:\cygwin\bin\bash -xe C:\DOCUME~1\OR-ENG~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\hudson3300316933213918666.sh
      09:56:19  $ C:\cygwin\bin\cygpath -w /bin/bash
      09:56:20  [spectrum_tap2] $ C:\cygwin\bin\bash -xe C:\DOCUME~1\OR-ENG~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\hudson2834466993129794225.sh
      09:56:20  + '[' '' '!=' true ']'
      09:56:20  + echo 'Build description: Build skipped'
      09:56:20  Build description: Build skipped

      And the failure, 3 seconds later:

      09:56:23  $ C:\cygwin\bin\cygpath -w /bin/bash
      09:56:27  [spectrum_tap2] $ /bin/bash -xe C:\DOCUME~1\OR-ENG~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\hudson5829219388252082290.sh

      I don't know what component this should be, so I set it to 'core'.
