Re: Arnold hangs every type of job

Ok, so today I tried to construct generic jobs from this JSON: { "job": { "name" : "Arnold Generic Job test", "user_name" : "rum", "host_name" : "fx08", "blocks":[ { "name" : "Arnold2", "tasks_name" : "frames @#@-@#@", "service" : "generic", "parser" : "generic", "frame_first" : 1, "frame_last" : 1,...

Re: Arnold hangs every type of job

Yes, I tried to launch afrender under root, situation is absolutely the same, except that error about "chdir" doesn't appear. It seems that "LaunchProgram: chdir(): : Permission denied" refers to some OTLs, not to renderers I have an idea to create a generic job with a command from standard job, cre...

Re: Arnold hangs every type of job

Thanks for replying that quick! We use "farm" user for afrender processes instead of "render", so it's OK. PermissionDenied error is written by Houdini, it is written even without Arnold, when everything works perfectly, but since you think it can be important, I'll try to find out what causes it, t...

Re: Arnold hangs every type of job

Hi again. Thanks for your advice. I did as you said - copied command from task window, launched it in the same environment and everything worked. I still don't even know what is wrong. And I can't understand also why mantra and bgeo cache tasks behave like arnold tasks (freezes after houdini launch)...

We use linux version btw. I've found some topics on github and i...
