Hi:

Welcome to Linux Questions!

I read through these Precise Puppy Forum threads to get an idea of where your files might be that your looking for. The path's to log files I found are:
Code:

/usr/local/java
And
/tmp/xerrs.logfile

thanks Ztcoracat for the quick response and "how to find files link" will no doubt be useful

I know from ubuntu where I have migrated from that ganttproject should write a log file to /home/.ganttproject.d but there is nothing in this folder on puppy so the script exits at a very early stage?

no error file in java but xeers.log reports the following but alas it may as well be written latin.

Your Welcome-

I have never seen anything like this 'read out' that you posted. LOL might as well be written in latin- :confused: Looks like a file is not able to be created and I don't understand why.
In Linux you should be able to make any directory or file that you need to.

Maybe another member with that kind of experience looking at that those errors will come along and explain for you what is up.

Quote:

but there is nothing in this folder on puppy so the script exits at a very early stage?
The application ganttproject should of made a file like you said-(with a working logical script)

Maybe the Precise Puppy Forum has record of this. I'll re-search a tad more and see if there is a solution.

Sometimes looking up the error messages help.
This could be a bug-
Quote:

cp: cannot create special file `/initrd/pup_ro1/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p
https://bugs.launchpad.net/pld-linux/+bug/715918

A member running the same distro as you listed it as well.
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtop...f7f1749c64d084

This error is a discussion in the Precise Puppy forum as well.
Quote:

cp: cannot create special file `/initrd/pup_ro1/dev/snd/pcmC0D0p': No such file or directory
The member tried this:
While the pupsave file is written to the SD card for the first time, there exists no directory ../snd.. in /initrd/pup_ro1/dev/ .
Therefore the copying fails. After I copied the directory ../snd into /initrd/pup_ro1/dev the 'save' to the SD card went well.
Now the xerrs.log reads like this:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtop...f7f1749c64d084

Hope this helps

Hi Ztcoracat

Ganttproject is supposed to write a log file to /home/.ganttproject.d which it is not here is a ccopy of the script

echo statement is print to screen i think but none of these happen so i am assuming it exits early?


#!/bin/bash

SCRIPT_PATH=$0
RESOLVED_PATH=`readlink -f "$SCRIPT_PATH"`
while [ ! "$RESOLVED_PATH" = "$SCRIPT_PATH" ]; do
SCRIPT_PATH=$RESOLVED_PATH
RESOLVED_PATH=`readlink -f "$SCRIPT_PATH"`
done
GP_HOME=`dirname "$SCRIPT_PATH"`


GP_LOG_DIR="$HOME/.ganttproject.d"
# Check if log dir is present (or create it)
if [ ! -d $GP_LOG_DIR ]; then
if [ -e $GP_LOG_DIR ]; then
echo "file $GP_LOG_DIR exists and is not a directory" >&2
exit 1
fi
if ! mkdir $GP_LOG_DIR ; then
echo "Could not create $GP_LOG_DIR directory" >&2
exit 1
fi
fi

# Create unique name for log file
LOG_FILE="$GP_LOG_DIR/.ganttproject-"$(date +%Y%m%d%H%M%S)".log"
if [ -e "$LOG_FILE" ] && [ ! -w "$LOG_FILE" ]; then
echo "Log file $LOG_FILE is not writable" >2
exit 1
fi

# Find usable java executable
if [ -z "$JAVA_HOME" ]; then
JAVA_COMMAND=$(which java)
if [ "1" = "$?" ]; then
echo "No executable java found. Please set JAVA_HOME variable" >&2
exit 1
fi
else
JAVA_COMMAND=$JAVA_HOME/bin/java
fi
if [ ! -x "$JAVA_COMMAND" ]; then
echo "$JAVA_COMMAND is not executable. Please check the permissions." >&2
exit 1
fi

LOCAL_CLASSPATH=${GP_HOME}/eclipsito.jar:${GP_HOME}
CONFIGURATION_FILE=ganttproject-eclipsito-config.xml
BOOT_CLASS=org.bardsoftware.eclipsito.Boot

if [ -n "$(echo \"$*\" | sed -n '/\(^\|\s\)-/{p;}')" ]; then
$JAVA_COMMAND -Xmx256m -classpath $CLASSPATH:$LOCAL_CLASSPATH $BOOT_CLASS $CONFIGURATION_FILE -log -log_file $LOG_FILE "$@"
else
exec $JAVA_COMMAND -Xmx256m -classpath $CLASSPATH:$LOCAL_CLASSPATH $BOOT_CLASS $CONFIGURATION_FILE -log -log_file $LOG_FILE "$@" &
fi


Thanks again
