Subject: [gentoo-user] Scripts not working... HELP!
Date: Thu, 28 Apr 2011 05:41:22
1 This message is coming from my 32-bit "hot backup" gentoo machine.
2 For some reason, any script that I call on my 64-bit machine immediately
3 returns to the command prompt. No warnings or error messages or
4 diagnostics. Builtins and compiled executables work OK. For instance,
5 if I have a script named "xyz" that goes like so...
7 #!/bin/bash
8 man bash
10 ..., executing "xyz" or "~/bin/xyz" results in bash immediately
11 returning to to the command prompt. If I type "man bash", it works OK.
12 On top of everything else, getmail seems to go into "forkbomb mode",
13 generating a gazillion processes, and eventually locking up the machine,
14 if I type in...
15 /usr/bin/getmail -v -v -v --rcfile rc_cotse
17 It looks like the script is being totally ignored, e.g...
19 waltdnes@i3 ~ $ emerge anyone home?
20 waltdnes@i3 ~ $
22 Any ideas what gives?
