Description (last modified by jackburton)

The step "Installing MIME database" of haiku build doesn't work correctly and produces some weird output on Ubuntu Edgy Eft.

This is the error message: build/scripts/build_haiku_image: 120: +: not found build/scripts/build_haiku_image: 120: +: not found Entry `generated/tmp/mime/mimedb18750_0.mime' is a directory. Command failed: Is a directory Command was:

cp :generated/tmp/mime/mimedb18750_0.mime

/myfs/home/config/settings/beos_mime/application/msword build/scripts/build_haiku_image: 120: +: not found resource(1, "META:TYPE") "application/msword"; resource(1, "META:TYPE") "application/ogg"; Entry `generated/tmp/mime/mimedb18750_0.mime' is a directory. Command failed: Is a directory Command was:

cp :generated/tmp/mime/mimedb18750_0.mime

/myfs/home/config/settings/beos_mime/application/ogg

The filetypes in the resulting images are also incorrectly set.

I think it could depend on the bash version. stefano@shiryu:~/haiku/haiku$ bash --version GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release (i486-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

The following patch fixes the problem. I won't commit it because I'm not sure it works on previous bash versions.

Out of curiosity, what does (( ... )) do? :-)

Absolutely nothing :( In fact I just noticed this doesn't fix my problem. I just searched around for the specific problem and somewhere I read that for math operations you should use (( )). But as I said, this doesn't fix my problem.

Replying to jackburton:

Apparently these warnings are harmless, and the boot problem I was having was related to another thing.

Replying to jackburton:

Since rev 19344 building the database works under Edgy Eft too. The problem is that Edgy Eft symlinks /bin/sh to /bin/dash and dash doesn't contain many bash extensions like doing arithmetic operations inside [ ]. Output redirection to /dev/null doesn't work yet, though.

Resolution: fixed

Fixed in rev. 19345. &> is a bashism, not supported by dash (and sh)
