RNtrack 2.1.9/Lnx
Hi Michael,

I know this is the Husky echo, but I'm hoping you might be able to help me out
with an issue with RNtrack.

I think I have everything set up in the config file correctly. I have been
trying to run some tests through it on my test system, and I'm getting the
following error:

Internal Error!!! Please, read report.err in documentation.
---------------------------------------
2020-10-22 21:06:10 RNTrack 2.1.9/Lnx
Check point: 309
Signal: 11
---------------------------------------
--- RNtrack 2.1.9/Lnx stopped.

I was trying to route a netmail message to a node that connects directly to
this system.

It seems to be this section where it's crashing.

ScanDir: "/home/dan/mystic/netmail/out"
Mask: * * * 1:305/3.* * * *
Action: RouteFilebox Direct 1:305/3

I also put the logging on 5, and this is the last few lines:

2020-10-22 21:06:10 Message is equal to mask.
2020-10-22 21:06:10 Route message from 1:317/3.1 to 1:305/3 via 1:305/3
2020-10-22 21:06:10 Split kludge. p == 'Via', p2 == '1:317/3 RNtrack
2.1.9/Lnx 22 Oct 2020 21:06:10 UTC-0600'
2020-10-22 21:06:10 --- RNtrack 2.1.9/Lnx stopped.

I'm pretty sure it's something in my config file, but I haven't been able to
track it down. Everything up until that point seems to be working fine. I've
tried changing the Action: to 'Route Normal 1:305/3', Route Normal %', and
nothing seems to make any difference.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I'll take a look at the newest version.

I figured it didn't hurt to ask. Smile

Thanks,

I just tried to unarchive it, and I'm getting:

tar -xvzf rntrack-1_1_10-src.tar.bz2

gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

-j, --bzip2
filter the archive through bzip2

So use 'y' instead of 'z'...


Bye, Wilfred.

Thanks Wilfred. I was able to get it with tar -xf.

I've never had problems like that with a .bz2 file before...

Thanks Oli. I was able to get it with the tar -xf command. This is the first
time I've ever had problems with an archive like that...

means your tar is missing support for bzip2
