Git z/OS fatal: cannot run less: EDC5129I No such file or directory

  • 1.  Git z/OS fatal: cannot run less: EDC5129I No such file or directory

    Posted 11-27-2019 22:53

    I just started to try git z/OS in our env. following some steps in git documentation website

    I have successfully clone a repository, create a branch (git branch testing)

    When I issue the command git log --oneline --decorate
    It has this error message:
    fatal: cannot run less: EDC5129I No such file or directory

    less is not a standard zOS OMVS shell command, it should be in bash. the error appears that it can not find the less command.

    did a echo $GIT_SHELL, output is /_PRDS/PTZ/bash/bin/bash, which is our Rocket bash installation directory.

    Any expert here know what’s the problem ?

    Hi ecsk,

    Please setup ‘more’ as default pager for git.

    Thanks,
    Alexander

    I was able to get less working on z/OS under Rocket’s bash.

    I uploaded an Ansible role where you can find installation instructions -
