Re: [cdt-dev] External build tool: Cannot run program "bjam": Unknown reason

Hmm - my strace output is up to 2 GB now without the issue cropping up... not sure this is feasible.

The strace-output does not seem to cover e.g. the spawner process. Did you use the "-f" option to strace to have it follow child processes? Eclipse will spawn a helper process called "spawner" which does the actual system call to start the subprocess, and there is no mention of this in your strace output.

Have you tried attaching strace to Eclipse to see what actual system calls are being made and if there are any error messages at that level? strace has pretty nice filtering features to capture just certain subsets of system calls.

I've run eclipse through strace as follows:


     $ strace eclipse 2> /tmp/eclipse.strace.out


It seems to stop during launching and then the following message is the last returned


    wait4(15567, log4j:WARN No appenders could be found for logger (org.eclipse.jgit.util.FS).

    log4j:WARN Please initialize the log4j system properly.


Please see log attached


Any insight greatly appreciated!
