EXDEV: cross-device link not permitted

I am seeing this issue, since this morning. Can you please help me solve this? Everything was working before.


downloading kind from https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/kind/releases/download/v0.8.1/kind-linux-amd64
chmod +x /home/runner/work/_temp/2eecb160-a46e-44cf-9217-e333cb604de4
##[error]EXDEV: cross-device link not permitted, rename ‘/home/runner/work/_temp/2eecb160-a46e-44cf-9217-e333cb604de4’ -> ‘/home/runner/bin/kind’

Our repo using Typescript shows the same error.

I’ve got the same issue for https://github.com/crazy-max/ghaction-docker-buildx

Since virtual environment ubuntu-18.04 20200518.1, /home/runner/work is another partition /dev/sdb1, so rename or links returns this kind of error.

So to solve this, use copy instead of rename.

If it concerns temp files, override TMPDIR env var with home/runner/_temp/tmp

name: build


  TMPDIR: /home/runner/work/_temp/tmp

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
        name: Checkout
        uses: actions/checkout@v2
        name: Prepare
        run: |
          mkdir -p $TMPDIR

@tamalsaha @joonsungum @crazy-max ,

I have created an issue ticket (actions/virtual-environments#922) to report this problem to the appropriate engineering team for further investigation and evaluation.

You can follow this issue ticket and add your comments on it.
