(I haven't checked this myself; I'm just speculating).
I'm surprised the second mkdir (of ..../bin) fails, since it uses
"mkdir -p", it shouldn't fail. Actually, I've just tested this:
ordinary user, no perms, existing dir
the following exits 0:
mkdir -p /usr/bin
ordinary user, no perms, r-o file system, existing dir
the following exits 1:
mkdir -p /readonlymount/existingdir
I would argue that the latter should exit 0.
A quick check against Solaris 8 reveals that it does exit 0 in the
So, at the moment, you're stuck :-(. If you just needed to write
the wrapper to another path, I'd suggest looking at the "-w wrapper"
option to build.sh
I'll think about another solution.
