I have a GitLab Runner running on a Mac Mini (for iOS app builds). Due to the small size of the internal drive, I have GitLab Runner set to use an external USB3 SSD for doing builds. This configuration has worked for several years.
[[runners]] name = "Mac-Mini - Native" url = "https://gitlab.example.com/" token = "REDACTED" executor = "shell" shell = "bash" builds_dir = "/Volumes/Extra Space/buildbot/builds" [runners.custom_build_dir] [runners.cache]
After upgrading to macOS 12 Monterey, I’ve been having problems with
bundle install that I have to run to set up Fastlane. I traced this issue to a failure to build certain gems due to the space in the path
I renamed the volume to
ExtraSpace and now the
bundle install command works, so I changed the
builds_dir value in the Runner configuration:
builds_dir = "/Volumes/ExtraSpace/buildbot/builds"
It seems that this change has only partially worked, since the CI jobs no longer run at all.
Here is an example output from a job:
Running with gitlab-runner 14.4.0 (4b9e985a) on Mac-Mini - Native REDACTED Preparing the "shell" executor Using Shell executor... Preparing environment Running on Mac-mini.mynetwork.example.com... Getting source from Git repository Fetching changes...

As you can see, both the old path (with the space) and the new path (without it) appear in the log output.
greped through the whole HOME directory of the
buildbot user, but I don’t see anywhere else that this path is mentioned. I tried restarting the runner process, as well as rebooting the whole machine, with no effect.
Why is the old path still being used? What can I do to fix it?
