I installed Ubuntu for my development server recently because getting CentOS was such a royal PITA, and it’s all gone very nicely except for one thing: <exec> task is failing on my in some very inconvenient circumstances. It all started when I discovered that most of my circumstances where I was execing “echo” were completely failing. This was easy to fix by using the “echo” task itself. Now I’m finding some ruby programs I very much need to work are failing when exec’ed. Running “/bin/date”, for instance, as a sanity check, results in nothing at all. I run:
<exec executable=”/bin/date” failonerror=”true”>
<arg line=”>/tmp/mess888.lst” />
Results in nothing; no failure; no output.
Can anyone make some suggestions? This is a real disaster if it won’t work.
