Are you sure that the ownership of all the files in the spider directory
are correct?

ls -l 

will tell you. 

Please check that cluster.pl is running as the correct user (ie the
'sysop' user [or which ever username you are using]). You can do this
with 'top' or 'ps aux'. IT MUST NOT RUN AS 'root' (I should put in a
check for this I think).

To make sure that everything is right do the following (I assume you are
user the username 'sysop', if not substitute 'sysop' for the correct

stop the node

login or su as 'root'

cd /spider
chown -R sysop.sysop .
find . -type d -exec chmod 02775 {} \;

ln -s /spider/perl/console.pl /usr/bin/dx
ln -s /spider/perl/*dbg /usr/bin

login as 'sysop'

cd /spider/perl

restart the node

you should now be able to type in:-


and get a sysop console 

Please report back on progress.
