are you saying that the program crashes? if you are running it on linux, please find the log file as ~/.fgfs/fgfs.log and the previous log as ~/.fgfs/fgfs_0.log...

"Why not?" said Gurder.

Mennesker inkl. doktoravhandling grad professorer har misforstått. Jeg har sagt at jeg klarer ikke å kompilere kildekode til program så jeg kan få postet fgfs.log og fgfs_0.log!

yes, we saw that in your initial post when we asked why you were trying to compile 20 year old code. in your point 3 of that post, you mentioned having gotten 2017.2.1 from store.flightgear.org... if you have 2017.2.1, it should be operational if you have installed it... if you are trying to compile the latest code in the repository, you need to post the output of your attempt to configure and compile the code...

google-translate (sorry):
Ja, vi så det i ditt første innlegg da vi spurte hvorfor du prøvde å kompilere 20 år gammel kode. i ditt punkt 3 i det innlegget nevnte du at du hadde fått 2017.2.1 fra store.flightgear.org ... hvis du har 2017.2.1, bør den være operativ hvis du har installert den ... hvis du prøver å kompilere siste kode i depotet, må du legge ut resultatet av forsøket på å konfigurere og kompilere koden ...

there is nothing in the flightgear logs that is of any real importance... it is all about flightgear... at worse, your user name and directory structure related only to FG... you can always change your user name in your shared/posted logs... i do but that's all i change...

if in doubt, you can set up a dedicated "fgfs" user account on your computer for anything involving FlightGear - this is what I'd recommend to do anyway, because that way, there's no way for any of your private/work related stuff (documents etc) to be compromised while tinkering with FlightGear. Alternatively, you could dual-boot into fgfs and/or install fgfs on a separate flash drive or USB drive.

Speaking in general, it's much more likely that your usual internet software (browser, mail client etc) would contribute to a compromised system than fgfs itself.

However, there's admittedly an increasing number of features added to fgfs that can definitely be considered potential attack vectors (networking, multiplayer, terrasync, fgcom, package manager, aircraft center, new Qt5 launcher or tiled maps).

If you're concerned about any of these, my suggestion would be to run fgfs in an isolated environment (separate hard disk/computer), without providing any network/internet access at all.

Personally, I am not overly concerned actually, but I would agree that it's very unfortunate that more and more "live" functionality is added, i.e. features that introduce more and more hard-coded assumptions about a fgfs process always being "online" automatically, and often also on a broadband connection.

Thus, it would probably not be such a bad idea to introduce a dedicated "offline mode" that would disable such functionality for good (at least for the duration of the session).
Please don't send support requests by PM, instead post your questions on the forum so that all users can contribute and benefit
Thanks & all the best,
Hooray
