#147 Nixnote does not start on Fedora 18/64bit


I installed nixnote from the 64bit .tar.gz (the .rpm has some file conflict with a fedora package). The install went fine but nixnote can't start and gives the following exception:

  • Make sure your /tmp directory is not mounted as noexec. Jambi requires the ability to exec from the /tmp directory.

  • tante

    Making /tmp mounted without noexec fixes the issue. Thank you.

    Would it be possible to move Jambi somewhere else? Many distributions mount /tmp noexec as a security feature.

    • status: open --> closed
  • I don't know. I didn't make the requirement, I just live by it. :-)

    NixNote 2 is removing Jambi, so long term it won't be a requirement.

    Gad it fixed the problem.
