Hi

I would like an easy way to log output and user selections to a file for bugreporting. It would save much time and ensure that the messages a correct.

Greetings

    Yes, I know about the green command. But If a error occure after this point the command is gone. Anyway I still have to write the command and the error messages down by hand.
    Do you know about tee?

    I have know idea how tee works with TUI, but maybe text only output would be okay for debugging.

    If you already considered tee excuse me :-)

  • Why not create a directory under /home/partimag & create a log there ?
    Initial logs could be kept under /tmp & then copied to the share once it becomes available.

    I created a custom script that does this. First I made a few small changes to prep-ocsroot so that it can automatically mount /home/partimag by accepting exported smb user/password variables - which the custom script reads from /proc/cmdline.

    I also enabled the script to send messages via wget to a web server.

    That's true. We have to rewrite a lot of the programs to output the messages to the screen and the log file.
    BTW, if you can share your programs, maybe we can use part of them.
    Thanks.

    Steven.
