Hi, i'm new at OSM and I tried to install Tirex on debian. I already installed it on Centos successfully but on debian it won't work. Every time I try to start the tirex-master I get this message:

    missing path at /usr/bin/tirex-master line 518

I have no clue what this means because the line reads the config directory. When I provide the config dir via -c it doesn't work, too.

Sorry if the question has been posted already. Thanks for help.

I suggest that you run (as user tirex) the command "strace -f tirex-master -d 2>&1 | less" which will list the system calls that tirex makes; towards the end of the list, just before the program terminates, you will see which files it tried to open and failed. Then check whether you have your config files right.

Thank you for the command. With this command I found the problem: I copied a wrong file into the renderer directory so tirex wanted to load the content of the directory which was not set in the file.
