I was trying to update the install script for NixOS 3.5.0 but hit a small pb.
I could start the install of EventStore 3.5.0 on ubuntu after installing
sudo apt-get install build-essential g++
by trial and error (I have no idea if I “have a newer compiler which treats warnings appearing as a result of compiling the Google V8 codebase as errors.”)
not adding the werror=no leads to
make: *** empty string invalid as file name. Stop.
But when I try to do a manual source install on NixOS 15.09, I get
- make x64.release werror=no
build/gyp/gyp --generator-output=“out” build/all.gyp
-S.x64.release -Dv8_enable_backtrace=1 -Dwerror=’’ -Darm_fpu=default -Darm_float_abi=default
/bin/sh: build/gyp/gyp: /bin/bash: bad interpreter: No such file or directory
Makefile:389: recipe for target ‘out/Makefile.x64.release’ failed
make: *** [out/Makefile.x64.release] Error 126
And indeed there is no bash program in /bin/
[nix-shell:/tmp/nix-shell-es/EventStore-oss-v3.5.0-src]$ ls -la /bin/
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Feb 24 12:25 .
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 4096 Feb 24 12:16 …
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 63 Feb 24 12:25 sh -> /nix/store/l80ddf18bbig2icv6cmgjfws9a2vm3jj-bash-4.3-p42/bin/sh
However when I inspect the script I dont know which program is looking for such thing.
As an aside, I imagine that’s probably why the script wisely starts with
and not the direct location of bash.
Anyone knows a blessed way to deal with this ?
