OK, the below output shows that you are "sitting" in the database directory:

so to start xace you need to this:

[chauser at pandorina chuckDB]$ xace .

the "." is resolved to the name of the current directory, i.e. your database.


You can also just tell xace where the directory is explicitly, for instance if
your database was   /my/directory/some/where/on/my/disk/my_database  you could
type this:

[chauser at pandorina chuckDB]$ xace /my/directory/some/where/on/my/disk/my_database


Does that make sense ?  If not then mail me direct and I will give you some more
help.

cheers Ed
