Create Enigma2 log file

Connect via Telnet or SSH with the Dreambox. Execute the following commands to see the Debug info from Enigma2.

Start Logging

Open the terminal via Telnet or SSH and enter the following commands:

init 5 && sleep 15 && enigma2.sh

In this case, 3 commands are executed consecutively.

  • init 5 ➤ stops Enigma2.
  • sleep 15 ➤ waits for 15 seconds, before executing the next commands.
  • enigma2.sh ➤ starts Enigma2.

As soon as Enigma2 is started, the Debug info is shown in the terminal.

Stop Logging

The logging can be stopped at any time with the key combination Ctrl + c.

Submit the logging

The logging can be copied en saved in a text file (e.g. debug.log). Afterwards you can post the in a thread.

Start Enigma2

Now you can start Enigma2, if it is still possible, with the command:

init 3

Enigma2 logging in a text file

It's also possible to write the logging in a file directly. The file can be posted in a thread if the developper asks for more info.

Connect via Telnet or SSH with the Dreambox. Execute the following command:

init 5

Start logging

Wait minimum 10 seconds (this way Enimga2 can be stopped completely) and enter the following command to start the logging.

enigma2.sh > ~/debug.log 2>&1

The file with name debug.log is stored in the directory /home/root. As long as Enigma2 is active, the Debug information is written in the file.

Stop Logging

The logging can be stopped at any time with the key combination Ctrl + c.

Start Enigma2

Now you can start Enigma2, if it is still possible, with the command:

init 3

Post the log file

In case of this example, the log file (debug.log) of Enigma2 can be found in the directory /home/root. Copy the file with FTP onto your computer and post the file in the thread.
