strange error may because of shell?



When I am doing petalinux-config, I got error like this:


INFO: Checking component...

INFO: Config linux [INFO ] config linux *** End of the configuration. ***

Execute 'make' to start the build or try 'make help'.

/bin/sh: 1: pushd: not found

/bin/sh: 1: popd: not found

make: *** [post-config-auto-config] Error 127 ERROR: Failed to post config linux ERROR: Failed to config component linux

Usually this is because shell not bash, but I am pretty sure I am using bash.. Unless the ubuntu 16 is using dash??? in my /etc/passwd it shows my shell is /bin/bash

by the way, I noticed when I am sourcing settings64.sh from petalinux, there is warning 

WARNING: /bin/sh is not bash


Does someone face same problem too?

Hey Dakefeng,

Sorry for the delayed reply due to the long weekend. As you have observed, the recommended shell for PetaLinux is Bash. I am not certain what you mean by making a link from bin/sh to bin/bash, however there are a couple ways to change the default shell. If you haven't already, I would suggest using the chsh command and linking to /bin/bash, such as

chsh -s /bin/bash

There are a handful of other dependencies that PetaLinux has that are easy to overlook. The PetaLinux reference guide has a list of packages you should install in order for the program to run properly, starting on page 9 I believe.
