It's not a good idea to run commands suggested on the Internet without
first getting some understanding of what they will do to your system.
That strace(1) command will have created one or more `st.*' files
allowing you to see all the system calls the process and its children
did, including what led to it deciding not to do any output.

Cheers, Ralph.
