#55827 new defect

sandbox-exec: execvp() of 'sh' failed: No such file or directory

Description (last modified by ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt))

Each of these port fails to install with the same error. I have a fresh installation of HighSierra MacPort, no migration from old ports.

Below an extract from /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_math_gnuplot/gnuplot/main.log

:info:extract sandbox-exec: execvp() of 'sh' failed: No such file or directory
:info:extract Command failed:  cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_math_gnuplot/gnuplot/work" && /usr/bin/gzip -dc '/opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/gnuplot/5.2.2/gnuplot-5.2.2.tar.gz' | /usr/bin/tar -xf - 
:info:extract Exit code: 71

If I execute from prompt the above command, it succeeded. Same behavior, with different file names, for the other ports in subject.

I hope someone can help me,

many greetings

Are you using trace mode? If so, maybe it's a similar problem to #55575; the workaround is not to use trace mode.

If you're not using trace mode... Has it ever worked? If so, what changed?

I don't know what is trace mode, I don't think to use it.

I installed new ports after the recent High Sierra updates (now 10.13.3 (17D47)) and I encountered the problem. So I made a new fresh MacPort installation and I began from the ports that I needed. Now all ports gave this error.

It could be a problem of file/directory rw permissions or similar, but I can not figure how to check it and why it happens now.

What's the output of ls -lash /bin/sh and which sh on your system?

Please try

sandbox-exec -p '(version 1) (allow default) (deny file-write*)  (allow file-write-data (literal "/dev/null") (literal "/dev/zero")  (literal "/dev/dtracehelper") (literal "/dev/tty")  (literal "/dev/stdin") (literal "/dev/stdout") (literal "/dev/stderr")  (literal "/dev/random") (literal "/dev/urandom")  (regex #"^/dev/fd/")) (allow file-write*  (regex #"^(/private)?(/var)?/tmp/" #"^(/private)?/var/folders/" #"^(/private)?/var/db/mds/"))' sh -c true

on your system.

Check Console.app for messages from sandboxd while you do this and provide these messages.

Can it be the warning about setting world read permission relevant ?

The messages you provided are all from kernel. There should be messages from sandboxd that explain the sandbox violation. You should also see these messages when running the MacPorts commands. If you do not see any sandboxd messages it's probably unrelated to the sandbox (although I really don't know what else would be causing this).

The warnings printed by selfupdate may just be another instance of the same problem, since that uses system, which internally uses sandbox-exec. It's interesting to see that you were able to install precompiled packages, because I'd assume those use the same mechanism for extraction, but I didn't verify that (or they may have a different sandbox profile).

So: Please check Console.app for messages from sandboxd.

Sorry, I found no message after issuing the command. many greetings sim

comment:12 Changed 2 years ago by neverpanic (Clemens Lang)

Can you put sandbox_enable no into /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf and try again to see whether this is sandbox-related at all then?

Done. Sorry but no console message related to sandbox.

This is the console output related to gnuplot installation:

So just to make sure I understand this correctly, you're saying the installation still failed with sandbox_enable no?

MacOS error -67062 occurs when a code signature is required to do an operation but no signature is present:

$ security error -67062
Error: 0xFFFEFA0A -67062 code object is not signed at all

Unfortunately it's not clear what that operation is. MacPorts does not need code signatures for its operation. My best guess would be that a code signature on some system binary got lost for whatever reason. Unfortunately my knowledge ends here. I can only assume that this is a system problem. Try rebooting or refreshing your macOS installation.

The installation of previously mentioned ports, yes. But, I have to correct my previous claim that all ports fail ot install. I tried emacs and it will succeded. I don't need it, but it succeded.

So currently these are the port that systematically fail to install: ghostscript, gnuplot, cvs, gmp.

Many ports depends on them, so pratically I can not install any port that I need.

I will try immediatly a reboot; about reinstalling macOS, it will be more difficult.
