Basic problem due to IO restrictions being active (default).

Well, not a real problem, works as intended, to protect the innocents.

see
http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Unix_Section_4#I.2FO_Restrictions

> http://wiki.povray.org/content/Documentation:Unix_Section_4#I.2FO_Restrictions

So, as the message can be read: your log file must be in the same
directory as the image output file.

you need to tune the configuration of the io-restrictions to be more
relaxed.

I live in a dangerous world, my default compilation option is
--disable-io-restrictions, but that's me, and it might not be good for all.

so this is the private 'povray.conf':
; POV-Ray 3.8
[File I/O Security]
restricted
[Shellout Security]
allowed
[Permitted Paths]
read* = /usr/share/fonts/local
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/include
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/scenes
read* = %INSTALLDIR%/extra
read+write* = /tmp
read+write* = %HOME%


and /tmp and its descendants work.  usually.  what needs to be relaxed?


regards, jr.

for laughs I changed 'File I/O Security' to 'none' in both the site-wide and the
personal configuration files.  no dice.  same error, even though both stream +
image output files would "reside in same directory".

which paths ?

/usr/local/etc/povray/3.8 or
/usr/local/etc/povray/3.7 ?

Can you recompile with --enable-debug, and have a look at the start of
the output when you launch povray ?

I have that:

Is there perhaps a directory named `LOG`?

Also, what happens if you just specify `all_file=LOG`?

> output_file_name = /tmp/render/sf/frame_

Or is `frame_` perhaps a directory?

bingo.  'LOG' is created in same directory as frame_* files.  automatically.
nice.

thank you.
