Hi all

I am using TexMaker to build my source which is of the form:

\documentclass[12pt]{article}

\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}

\usepackage{amssymb}

\usepackage{amsmath}

\usepackage[body={6.5in,9in},nohead]{geometry}

\usepackage{epstopdf}

\usepackage{setspace}

\usepackage{url}

\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `basename #1

tif`.png}

\parskip = 0in

\title{blah}

\author{blah}

\begin{document}

CONTENT INCLUDING CITATIONS

\bibliographystyle{plain}

\bibliography{/home/majmds/Desktop/Files/latex/Bibliography/glucmod.bib}

\end{document}

My problem is that when I try and update the bibliography by running

bibtex I get 'process started' followed by 'process failed'. I can't

find a way to make TexMaker display the error messages from running

bibtex (the next latex error function does not apply here), but when I

looked in the folder containing the .bib file the following error log

is there:

This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)

(format=pdflatex 2006.1.11) 5 APR 2006 09:26

entering extended mode

**glucmod.tex

! Emergency stop.

<*> glucmod.tex

*** (job aborted, file error in nonstop mode)

Here is how much of TeX's memory you used:

3 strings out of 94500

97 string characters out of 1171224

48348 words of memory out of 1000000

3273 multiletter control sequences out of 10000+50000

3640 words of font info for 14 fonts, out of 500000 for 2000

580 hyphenation exceptions out of 1000

0i,0n,0p,1b,6s stack positions out of 1500i,500n,5000p,200000b,5000s

PDF statistics:

0 PDF objects out of 300000

0 named destinations out of 131072

1 words of extra memory for PDF output out of 65536

No pages of output.

Anybody have any idea as to what is going on here? What does this error

mean? Why has it suddenly started appearing? Why is the process

failing?

Many thanks for your help!
