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" or "sh -v".


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.

Name : bashdb
Arch : noarch
Version : 4.0_0.3
Release : 2.fc11
Size : 534 k
Repo : installed
From repo : fedora
Summary : BASH debugger, the BASH symbolic debugger
License : GPLv2+
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
: <script-name>.
