This also occurs running gradle on CentOS 5 in an Emacs shell window. I was able to work around it with "export TERM=dumb"

This is annoying. Gradle should have some fallback behavior if the terminal type is not found in termcap.

I'm seeing this issue in my CircleCI builds and have to export TERM=dumb to work around this build failure:

ubuntu@box44:~$ ./gradlew check              

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Could not open terminal for stdout: could not get termcap entry

Is there any progress being made on this issue in the past couple years?

I am trying to run gradle in Concourse CI and getting the same error.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!

This is sill an issue on gradle 2.13. I'm trying to execute gradle inside Concourse CI. Please fix it as soon as possible.

Comment by Biel Simon [ 28/Dec/16 ]

Okay, this i no longer an issue in gradle 3.2.1. I am not aware of when this was exactly fixed but it's fine now.

Comment by Benjamin Muschko [ 30/Dec/16 ]

Closing as it seems to be fixed with latest Gradle version (3.2.1). Unfortunately, I do not know which version fixes the issue.
