Re: [ROOT] Problems with Proof in root V4.00/02

    Hi Jose,

    We need some debugging to try to understand what's going on.
    Could you please send:

     1. Your configuration file for proof (proof.conf or alike)
     2. The output you get at the prompt with 'Root.Debug 4'
        in your .rootrc
     3. The output that you get from the proofd's on the master
        (and slaves, if it reaches that point) starting proofd 
        with option '-d 3'. You may start proofd in a separate
        window on the master or slave node in foreground mode

               proofd -d 3 -f -p <port>

        to get the output directly on the screen.

    Cheers, Gerri
