/bin/sh: eval: line 97: ./mybinary not found

I’m attempting to run a binary artifact in a job that was produced in an earlier job. Here’s the job execution log:

Here’s the .gitlab-ci.yml file:

image: golang:latest

variables:
    REPO_NAME: gitlab.com/group/repo

before_script:
    - mkdir -p $GOPATH/src/$(dirname $REPO_NAME)
    - ln -svf $CI_PROJECT_DIR $GOPATH/src/$REPO_NAME
    - cd $GOPATH/src/$REPO_NAME

stages:
    - build
    - run

compile-linux:
    stage: build
    script:
      - go build -o mybinary
    artifacts:
      paths:
        - mybinary

run:
    stage: run
    image: alpine
    script:
      - apk add ca-certificates
      - ls -la ./mybinary
      - ./mybinary -app=${APP_ID} -secret=${SECRET} -output=output.ext

I’m totally stumped as to why it can’t find mybinary, since in the command right before it I used the ls command to print out information about it (and it is executable). Any ideas what’s wrong with my setup?

I got unblocked by using the debian image instead of alpine, but I’d still like to know why it didn’t work with alpine. =/

I ran into a similar problem and found out what the problem is.

In your stage compile-linux you build the mybinary using the docker image golang. That is Debian based, and because Debian uses the GNU libc, or glibc, mybinary is linked against glibc.

The problem now is that you are using the alpine image in the run job. Alpine doesn’t use glibc, but rather musl libc, and that’s why mybinary can’t find its dependencies.

sh comments this with a rather unhelpful “not found”.

Another solution other than using debian for all jobs would be to use golang:latest-alpine as image.

Hope that helps!
