• core files are bad: debug them with gdb
    • For most crashes with LICOS:
      • $ gdb `which python` core.12345
      • (gdb) where
      • to get a traceback. core.12345 is the most recent core file in your running directory.
      • Traceback will tell you approximately where you failed.
      • You can also 'print' variables to determine their contents.
    • to turn them offish, "limit coredumpsize 0" in cshrc will turn the size down to 0, but won't prevent the file from being created.
  • When starting scriptEngine, sometimes the logging manager port is in use.
    Kill the 'artsd' process and restart.
  • To remove the 'artsd' problem above:
    • From Konqueror, Settings->Configure Konqueror->Plugins
    • On the Plugins page, select the Plugins tab
    • uncheck "Use artsdsp to pipe plugin sound through artsd"

    This is probably due to the ScriptEngine not gracefully terminating some VSC originated threads.
  • When working with the testbed powering off and on the SIU requires the TelemetryProxy to be restarted (09/27/05).
  • When working with the testbed, the following message was observed on the DiagnosticProxy (09/27/05):
