Yesterday, I wrote and ran a python
script which executes a
subprocess.Popen(command.split()) where command is string which constitutes
.sh script and its argument. This script was working fine until yesterday. Today, I ran the same script and now I am continuously hitting this error.
p=subprocess.Popen(shell_command.split()) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 679, in __init__ errread, errwrite) File "/usr/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1249, in _execute_child raise child_exception OSError: [Errno 8] Exec format error
I know there are similar questions that have been asked before related to this question, but in my case I tried everything which doesn’t solve my purpose. Using
shell=True does not work because my shell script calls an another shell script before which some environment has to be set in order to run that script. I am badly stuck in this. I just restart my system once. I am using
import subprocess import os import sys arg1=sys.argv arg2=sys.argve shell_command = 'my_path/my_shell.sh ' + arg1 + ' '+ arg2 P = subprocess.Popen(shell_command.split()) P.wait()
arg1=$1 arg2=$2 cd $TOP setup the environment and run shell script build the kernel ... execute shell command .....
