Resolution: Auto Closed
Fedora 19+ (and certainly many of linux distro)
I have a pretty complete site to publish to a git repository.
I'm unable to publish it because linux limits command arguments to ARG_MAX kernel argument (unmodifiable): http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/38955/argument-list-too-long-for-ls
And for sure, the command is veeeeeery long (more than two or three Jenkins console pages).
This bug is at least blocker for my concern.
The exact error:
The error: Cannot run program "/bin/sh" (in directory "/var/lib/jenkins/jobs/OsgiliathEF-Site-Deploy/workspace/target/scmpublish-checkout"): error=7, Liste d'arguments trop longue
An alternative could be either to pass a shell file containing arguments, either simply automate this task (what I'm doing now):
- edit .gitignore and unignore target/staging directory
- git add target/staging && git commit -m "Initial dist subtree commit"
- git subtree push --prefix target/staging origin gh-pages
- rollback and delete last revision
There are maybe best alternatives such as using xargs or make scalable equivalents of the command:
