Default Getting mprime output on console window.

Hi,


I run mprime on ubuntu. Since I put it in the startup folder to run when my machine starts, I don't get any output. I'd like to know what ms/iter I'm getting.


Is there anything I can do?


Will

I've tried putting the command


mprime/mprime -d


as the command run on boot.


The thing is, because the program isn't started from the console, there's nothing to see.


If I run mprime -d after boot, mprime says there's another mprime running so nothing happens.

This is my crontab entry:
Code:
@reboot screen -S mprime -d -m /home/george/Prime95/mprime -d
Screen -r lets me see mprime's output whenever I'm in the mood.

Does ubuntu have crontab file or whatever it is? All I know how to do is enter a command in a window box called startup applications.

Yes, Ubuntu should have a crontab, To list use crontab -l and to edit it use crontab -e. Then insert the "@reboot" line like the one given by Prime95 and remove the "startup" method you did.

For Mlucas runs, I just do 'tail -2 [path to run directory]/*stat && date'. As each assignment finishes I move its pXXX* files (every-10Miter persistent savefiles and .stat file) into an archive directory, so there is once again a unique .stat file in the rundir, which is a requirement for 'tail' with any non-default line-display count to work.

Hi guys,


I've got into a bit of trouble.


My crontab file has these two lines in


@reboot screen -S mprime -d -m \home\william\mprime\mprime -d
@reboot pactl load-module module-loopback



When I type in screen -r I'm told there's no screen to resume. Is there anything obviously wrong?

Use forward slashes.
