I have a script to run for setting up a Samsung CLX3175FN, when I start
it it hangs. and doesn't say why , how can I find why it hangs ?

I'm running it from the terminal as root.

If it's a Shell script (you don't say) try running it as "sh -x
script.sh" or "sh -v script.sh".


Thanks Patrick for yor responds.
Using the sh -x command shows me to where it stopped.
What app. in Linux could I use that would show the line # and have the Find
a line in it.
The Console does not have a "find" command in it.
Prefer a app. that is not a command line app.  I'm not very good at "vi" and
some of the others.

I haven't tried this yet, but you could give bashdb a try. Sounds very useful.

Description: The Bash Debugger Project is a source-code debugger for bash,
            : which follows the gdb command syntax.
            : The purpose of the BASH debugger is to check
            : what is going on “inside” a bash script, while it executes:
            :     * Start a script, specifying conditions that might affect its
            :       behavior.
            :     * Stop a script at certain conditions (break points).
            :     * Examine the state of a script.
            :     * Experiment, by changing variable values on the fly.
            : The 4.0 series is a complete rewrite of the previous series.
            : Bashdb can be used with ddd: ddd --debugger /usr/bin/bashdb

Thanks Suvayu it looks very impressive.
I ran the script I was having problems with and I have attached it.
I'm under the GUN here to get a Samsung CLX3175FN printer working, Samsung has drivers for linux but they won't work in Fedora 11 .The install.sh script is hanging up on me.

This sure is a nice printer.
