For any git process running from our RDi Eclipse environment we are receiving messages such as : bsh: git-receive-pack: not found . So as RDi connects to the ssh repository on our server it's not finding the git executables. The binaries do exist on the system within /QOpenSys/pkgs/bin. I've updated the PATH environment variable and the .profile file so the path is recognized when signing on to the system with a ssh request. If I directly ssh onto the server, I can call git commands with no issues. For some reason the eclipse environment within RDi doesn't recognize the /QOpenSys/pkgs/bin path.

The git support in Eclipse implemented by EGit does not use native git but relies on JGit, the Java implementation of git.
I suggest you ask the IBM product support. I don't use RDi and have no idea how it's implemented.

Thanks for that explanation. I did open a problem with Rational Developer for IBM i, but since Git is an open source solution, they were unwilling to support my problem. Hence why I'm going down this journey, using this forum. But I appreciate the jGit explanation. The RDi plug-in shows up as eGit though.

I finally figured out what was going on with RDi and the ACS Open Source Package-based Git. RDi expects everything to exist in /QopenSys/usr/bin regardless of enabling new paths within system environment varibles or .profile SSH login path directives. So I inserted symbolic links within /QOpenSys/usr/bin to resolve the problem.
