I haven't seem this before but I have run into problems when the HOME
directory
was full. The temp files couldn't be written and from that point on
there were problems.
Just a thought.

Subject: [PCB_FORUM] Allegro acting weird

 
Y'all:
 
I have a couple users having problems with Allegro, and it's got me
stumped.  I am hoping somebody has seen this before.
 
The original symptom was that Allegro crashes when the user attempts to
measure anything.  A confirmer window pops that says "Failed to open
file '/tmp/#Taaaaab03348.tmp' (the number is different when Allegro is
shut down but the same as long as you don't shut down).  I did all the
usual: cleared out the temp directory, verified that environment
variables were correct, looked at the env file, waved my sacred rattle
around.  Nothing out of the ordinary, just the same as all the other
users around here.
 
Then it got weird.
 
I tried to look at the environment by typing "set" in the Allegro
command line, nothing happened (no window with all the environment
variables).  I tried to look at the Design Paths in the Setup>User
Preferences form, some of the browse buttons looked like text boxes, and
if I clicked any of them they couldn't find the variable and popped the
now familiar warning about the "Failed to open file
'/tmp/#Taaaaab03348.tmp'.
 
PLEASE tell me somebody has seen this and has an easy fix.  I am digging
around for my windows XP CDROM 'cause I have a sinking feeling that the
OS has gone bye-bye and the user is not going to be happy.  :(
