Scons compile error

Hi Folks,

I've recently started getting errors when compiling the head with scons, which looks to me like I'm not piping the results of a git command correctly.

scons: Reading SConscript files ...
WindowsError: [Error 2] The system cannot find the file specified:
  File "C:\Users\greg\src\titanium_mobile\SConstruct", line 6:
    import package
  File "C:\Users\greg\src\titanium_mobile\site_scons\package.py", line 24:
    p = subprocess.Popen(["git","show","--abbrev-commit"],stderr=subprocess.PIPE, stdout=subprocess.PIPE)
  File "c:\Python26\lib\subprocess.py", line 623:
    errread, errwrite)
  File "c:\Python26\lib\subprocess.py", line 833:

I am running git version on windows 7.
Any clue as to what would cause this

  • Hi Gregor

    I just ran into this issue, and have updated ticket #2427 with all the information I discovered. My installation of scons now successfully compiles titanium_mobile.

    Hope this helps
