As I wrote, the script file assumes that if myts isn't running, then the pipe node needs to be created.
Since myts does not seem to set any trap handling (I.E: assumes it will always do a normal exit, not a trap exit) then the above assumption is incorrect for the case of anything other than a normal exit path.

Translation: The segfault prevents it from running, the less than robust script logic makes mknode fail on a pre-existing pipe. (Three problems: the script logic, the (lack) of trap logic and the original cause of the segfault.)
The strace output should help in finding the third problem. Only the designer can find the first two.

EDIT:

I am happy to report that with the help of MATAN it now works again. Heroic support:

Highly dedicated help, in the face of a completely inscrutable problem, might I add.

Real life Kudos to you Matan.

Happy days for me. Thanks everyone

I installed myts back in the days when I could only give tiny karma. I just noticed in the above post that matan's karma was only 136. I just fixed that.

P.S. Interesting coincidence: without calculating, I just gave the max karma I could to matan's 136, and now it is exactly 8000.

Is this font right? or the program's issue.
I got your fonts to run. once. and never again. just bombed.

And since my buddy Will18 don't dig the mini-squinting here's my effort

A working 12x24 font that is not utterly without use. : )
Tested as working on myTs 7 Kindle 3.x

Henjoy, Chars.


EDIT: correct formula was bdf2hex blahxblahFont.bdf > blahxblahFont.hex
EDIT EDIT: Although I am yet to understand why some fonts convert correctly and some do not.

I couldnt get the 'made' c tools in unifoundry-5.1.200080907 to produce the expected output. Just so you know; if you can't get them to work either? you're not going mad. I also got unexpected output from the Perl script with certain bdfs's so YMMV (using the tools I mentioned, not the font; that works fine) (MEH)

After a far too large amount of faffing I am unable to get a larger font to convert satisfactorily (read: 'and get MyTs to start')

so that's your lot for now. The Terminus 16x32 simply refuses to play ball. ho hum.

I recall seeing this "large font in myts" problem discussed before. I think myts needs a patch to support a large font. Here is a post (see the quote) with a link to myts-7 which has EXPERIMENTAL "up to 16-wide font" support added in.

Which version of myts are you using?

Since the toppost still refers to 6:

Here is the reference to VERSION 7

It's not that the MyTs version is incorrect.

It's simply I get unexpected output from the converters for certain bdf's and
this coupled with some slightly 'moody' myts behaviour for biggie fonts makes the job that much harder.

I'm loath the write an entire custom font for the sake of a few pixels. : )
24x16 will have to do until I find something better
(16 width only works under myTs 7 as you correctly advise)

: ) Thanks

Up to version 7 font height was arbitrarily limited to 24 pixels. You can try version 8 uploaded now with this limit raised to 32 (the debug binaries I sent you, twobob, also had this limit at 32, which might explain why it worked once and then stopped. Version 8 is completely untested by me.

Weird.

My 3.3 works with the original build. @_____@
EDIT: Yep, I'm looking at it now. Steeerange. Maybe I never rebooted or something odd.

Anyways, I'm replacing it with this one.
Matan my hero. now who's going to make that nice 16x32 font. Roll up, Roll up!

I added a starter, just needs converting I'll wager.

I did. From your .bdf, I crunched a 16x32.hex with the bdf2hex perl script, and I modified the myts.ini:
