make[2]: execvp: Permission denied


Posted on August - 30 - 2009



make[2]: execvp: true: Permission denied

You need to do chmod 755 true on the true script on your bin, For me I had followed the instructions at:

http://blogs.koolwal.net/2009/07/20/howto-installing-git-on-bluehost-domain-hosted-websites/

for installing git on bluehost. I had to make a script called ‘true’, and put it in my local bin to get git to compile.

make[2]: execvp: <YOUR FILE HERE>: Permission denied

These errors mean that your script does not have execute rights. You can ‘chmod 755 <YOUR FILE>’ and it should work.
