Bamboo claims it cannot find '/usr/bin/mvn'

I cannot the agent to recognize that /usr/bin/mvn exists. Hence my matrix says not jobs can be run. I even installed maven from a tar.gz and still bamboo gives the little red x for 'mvn exists'. What can I do to figure out what is going on?

Sorry Piotr, I misunderstood. I added _only_ /home/pstefaniak/apache-maven-2.2.1 as the path and now it seems to be running. Of course this means that maven needs an non-standard install on linux, which, I would think, should be considered a bug. Buy hey, at least I'm past this. Thanks!

Did you add maven as a capability? For the agent?

Yes. I've added /usr/bin/mvn as an executable and it shows in the agent. But when I run the build or view the matrix I get error saying 'mvn exists' (not exits is what it means).

I really wish bamboo would verify an executable when its created not sometime later.

Can you paste the screenshot of your agent capabilities relevant configuration page(s)? I do wonder if you added /usr/bin/mvn as a Maven capability (good) or as an custom executable capability (not good)...

I added it as an executable. But also (somewhere else) I added it by selecting from a list that showed Maven 1.x, Maven 2.x, Maven 3.x. That seemed to make no difference. I have shutdown bamboo for a bit and restarted teamcity becuase we have some builds that need building. I'll get back to bamboo it a bit. Thanks!

Ok I deleted the maven executable and the maven job step and re-added both. Don't see what I did different but the agent can now run the job. However when it does I get various errors:

1) If I give a path to mvn as /usr/bin/mvn it tries to execute /usr/bin/mvn/bin/mvn

2) If I give a path of mvn it tries to execute mvn/bin/mvn

3) If I give a path of /usr I get

I see what happened with the agent not supporting maven. You have to create (or at least update) the job task AFTER the maven capability/executable is defined.

Hm... seems you need to specify the maven home directory (/home/pstefaniak/apache-maven-2.2.1) instead of the mvn itself.

As I mentioned in original post, I already tried that. Bamboo simply added /bin/mvn to the full path of /home/pstefaniak/apache-maven-2.2.1.
