Default Application not allowed to write to disk?


****yze a --debugmsg +relay,+file,+dosfs logfile.
strace is not too helpful, since it doesn't show what's going on on the
windows side (although a read-only file create certainly IS a problem).

What you showed us is opening the temp directory, obviously
to find out where to put the temp file itself. For this
read only mode is enough. Do not be misled!

I dunno, I'm thinking somehow it's not writing something though, or not
able to. It looks then, like it's finding the right directory ok. All
looks well there. Just it isn't able to write to it right now.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to try that next. I don't know all the
different things that I can use on the command line, even after reading
the man pages (got to go back and do that again, too, I see).

I'm hoping this will give a clue to me what is happening. Maybe I might
not have some permissions set right.

There may be something else here. For DOS/Windows a read-only directory
means something else then in Unix. For DOS/Windows it means that you are
not allowed to delete the directory, for Unix it means you cannot
create/delete files/subdirs in it. For this reason wine refuses to make
directories read-only, but your app may have found a way to do it still.

So is your directory read-only? ( Check with "ls -l /tmp" )

Anyway to study the log Andreas asked for is the logical thing to do. It
is probably long, so zip it and put it somewhere on the net and post its
url.

Well, I found the problem, thanks to Andreas' incantation and the
resulting log. What happened was, a /tmp/Temp Files directory
was made on installation or first run of PSP, but there seemed
to be another dir within that which needed to be made, but
wasn't. This dir was JSC10024_usrname (where username is the
name of the account that is to use the PSP program). I created
this dir, and made this dir and the Temp Files dir as well both
world-write. And now the thing works! It will render effects
and plugins no problem, and will do flood fills now too.

Now I will need to study that man page again for more debug
options because the text is not rendering. I'm sure there's
something in there to watch for that as well. I'll nip away at
it.

But I want to thank you guys for hinting me along. I couldn't
have found the problem without all your help.

As a followup to your post - I got it working! Thank You! I made
another post about it in here on how I fixed it. Apparently it
was looking for another directory that just wasn't there. Once
made and proper permissions set, it worked!

I am grateful for your help. I couldn't have done it without your
hint.
