"received broken pipe signal" when trying to checkout from local repository from cron
Thu, 9 Feb 2012 14:37:06 -0800
I *believe* this is a bug--when I try to checkout files from a local repository
as a cron job, it issues the following output:
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/.settings
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/com
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/com/site
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/com/site/arcade
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/com/site/arcade/DAC2005
cvs checkout: Updating ARCADE/com/site/arcade/arana
cvs [checkout aborted]: received broken pipe signal
cvs [checkout aborted]: write error
I'm currently using version 1.12.13, however I had the same issue with 1.11.22
which prompted me to update to this version, to no avail. I'm on Red Hat
Enterprise Linux Client release 5 (Tikanga).
The command I run is:
/usr/local/bin/cvs -d /opt/site.dev checkout -DNOW ARCADE 2>
The same issue occurs, however, when using "export" instead of "checkout"
An interesting feature of this is that it works if I run the command normally,
but it fails if run as a cron job.
As workarounds, I've tried having cron launch a new bash process to run the
command, or run it under a different user, but in neither case did this work.
In my application, this might be a showstopper, since I'd like to be able to
automate tasks with the source code on the server (like builds, documentation
generation, and unit testing) as cron jobs, but if I can't export the source
from the repository, I don't see how this is possible (if anyone has any ideas,
though, I'm open). As it is, this might prompt a switch to SVN.
