Error, do this: mount -t proc proc /proc

I am getting this error both on pushes from local to remote and when starting a bash console on PA.

I have been away from PA for a while, but I don't think I've seen this error before.

What happens if you try to just ssh in without the git push?

The ssh works fine, but I get that same "proc" error msg. Here are the last few lines of verbose output for the ssh command ssh -v

Error, do this: mount -t proc proc /proc
Initializing new SSH agent...

That sounds like maybe your bashrc or something is doing something that requires proc. Did you recently add something to your bashrc? (since that will get run upon ssh-ing in)

Traditionally, you could never access /proc

I do not think I have ever edited the default .bashrc file. At least not recently. Here it is:

# Load up standard site-wide settings.
source /etc/bashrc
# start the ssh-agent
function start_agent {
    echo "Initializing new SSH agent..."
    # spawn ssh-agent
    /usr/bin/ssh-agent | sed 's/^echo/#echo/' > "${SSH_ENV}"
    echo succeeded
    chmod 600 "${SSH_ENV}"
    . "${SSH_ENV}" > /dev/null
if [ -f "${SSH_ENV}" ]; then
     . "${SSH_ENV}" > /dev/null
     ps -ef | grep ${SSH_AGENT_PID} | grep ssh-agent$ > /dev/null || {

There is a "ps" command in that .bashrc. That appears to be generating the error message.

Is there a default .bashrc that I should have?

I setup a free new account and copied the .bashrc from there. Problem solved :)

I'm seeing this error when I run pipenv install in my bash console here on Pythonanywhere.

Yes, it looks like pipenv doesn't work with our virtualization system right now :-(

FWIW, I see that error, but apart from that, it seems to play nicely with my virtualenv, and actually installs what I ask it to.

Interesting! Maybe the sandboxing system is only causing problems with a non-essential feature of pipenv. We'd love to know how you get on with it.

I am seeing this, just running ps -ef. I moved .bashrc over to, logged in again, and still see this error. I wonder if something has changed

No, nothing has changed. ps will still not work and if your bashrc is not running it, then something must be. Examine the error that you see to see if you can work out what is running the command that is causing the error.

I saw this error using pipenv as well. I'll let you know if it causes any issues running web2py.

Any idea of the cause and whether it will get resolved? Is it really a non-essential feature of pipenv that I don't need to worry about?

We're not sure right now if it's a non-essential feature, but none of the people who have mentioned that they got the error, but continued to use pipenv, have told us that things were broken, so that's a reasonable indication that it's probably not essential.

We don't currently have a timeline on adding /proc support, but it's something we're looking into.

Whenever I run a pipenv command it shows this error

Error, do this: mount -t proc proc /proc

Error, do this: mount -t proc proc /proc

Then it moves on to doing whatever it was supposed to do.

Do you notice a difference in the output from running it locally? Perhaps it's trying to report something and when it fails at that, it just carries on.

Hello, I’m having the same issue here:

Error, do this; mount -t proc proc /proc

Also when I use the pipenv command.

I’m just getting into this thread in order to receive updates about this post.

Cool. We are currently working on a change that will fix this and hope to release it soon.
