Re: Zephyr SDK v0.7.2 - "rm -rf /"

Poussa, Sakari


I had the same issue earlier. I filed the bug which wasn’t able to save you, Mads.

I was lucky enough not to run it under root.

Hi Anas,

Yes, that is correct. I was installing it on OSX. Cannot really give more details about what happened except that I pressed ctrl-C during the installation. It was the only shell I had open at that moment, so I am pretty sure it was caused by the SDK.

Best regards, Mads

Were you trying to install the SDK on Mac OS?
If yes, this issue will be addressed in the latest SDK drop which will be released today.

I downloaded the Zephyr SDK v0.7.2 last night and tried to install it this morning on my MacBook.

During the installation, I cancelled with ctrl-C and somehow it seems to have executed a "rm -rf /" (as root).

Obviously my system wont boot now, so I cannot examine this further until I have it up and running again. Just a heads up and maybe someone should have a glance at the SDK to make sure noone else gets into the same situation.
