UMS in Headless Mode, how to find debug-file?

Post by johabec » Sun Jan 04, 2015 8:55 am

Hi,

I am running UMS in headless mode with ubuntu 14.04.
I have several problems (audio not sync to movie, gpu acceleration seems not working) but I dont find a debug file in my folder.

Could anyone guide me how to enter debugging / loggin?

UMS was set up according to these instructions:

http://www.slsmk.com/how-to-install-uni ... less-mode/

I dont find the log / debug in /opt/ums/... ?

thanking you in advance,

Johannes

Hi,

I think this is the default location: /tmp/universalmediaserver/debug.log

Thanks, ...but /tmp/universalmediaserver/ is empty, any other idea?

Regards,

Johannes

according to logback.headless.xml found in the ums installation, it's "either the current directory or (when that is read only) the system temp directory."

On my Ubuntu 14.04.1 test install, it was located under ~/config/UMS
This was when starting it from the shell script directly

I think that's a poor location, /var/log or /tmp/universalmediacenter might be better.
Log files can get thrashed.
