GNOME 2.0 Desktop for the Solaris Operating Environment Troubleshooting Guide

4.4 General Error Messages


Where do I look for error messages when an application crashes or fails to run correctly? 


Look in the following files:  

  • ~/.dt/errorlog

  • ~/.dt/errorlog.old

  • ~/.dt/errorlog.older

  • ~/.dt/sessionlogs

You can also try running the application from a command line to see if any error message appear.  

You can capture a core file from a GNOME-compliant application by running the application with the --disable-crash-dialog option or by setting the GNOME_DISABLE_CRASH_DIALOG environment variable to 1 before running the application.
