What directory were you in when you ran the command? Using strace in this way creates a text file in the current directory which, as a user, you require write access to. I thought that you would be running it from your home directory. If not, change the line to:

Code:
$ strace -o ~/yahoo.trace ymessenger
And then view the file yahoo.trace (plain text) in your favourite editor.

Regards,

I did run it from my home directory... [webwolf@localhost webwolf]$strace -o yahoo.trace ymessenger

I found the log but I have no idea what to look for. It is to large to post here.
