Hi Gilbert,

re: changing data directory to /home/data
>OK. Here's what I did...I should have set up LDM better before I did this, 

No worries.  I shouldn't have messed with our setup as much as I
did, but I was trying to make it look more like "standard" installations.
The best intentions...

>I changed all the directories where data is ingested to point to 
>/home/data/****, where /home/data/mcidas is where the McIDAS stuff is 

I saw that yesterday afternoon.

>I changed the ldmadmin so that /home/ldm/logs, data and etc are where the 
>logs get written to, queue files, and pqact/ldmd files, respectively, are 

You should not have had to do this.  ldmamdin gets configured on
installation to put log files in $LDMHOME/logs.  The Unix environment
variable LDMHOME is typically the same as $HOME, so the log files

>TWis is WEIRD. How did you change your users/add new users?

run as 'root'.  This is a common way that system administrators
manage users without going through a script (like 'useradd' or
a GUI provided by the OS.

re: No idea why shell scripts are segfaulting.

I agree.  Hmm...  Nothing I did should have affected this at all.

re: systemwise, all I installed with the RPM that contains compress
>OK. Double hmmm.


re: did you update McIDAS to match your directory changes

>with the correct directories, right?

I did this yesterday afternoon.  When I last looked, McIDAS data was
being decoded correctly.  What I have not done yet is setup scouring
of the McIDAS data files.  I will add the cron entry sometime today.
