Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1748) Karaf startup fails with NullPointerException when logfile can't be written
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 06:21:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1748?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13448517#comment-13448517

Christoph Läubrich commented on KARAF-1748:

I think it should only print out a message, but include somewhere the exception message (the
Permission denied part).
This way its clear for the user what to do.
