I've tried 4 times now to build the book and each time I've waited overnight, but nothing happens.  The PB just says "Converting", and the horizontal bar never moves.  It always starts out at about 1/5 complete, but then the bar never changes.  

Any ideas?

   And to John W

If on a PC check Power Settings.  When pugged in PC goes to sleep?  select NEVER.  Not sure that is the fix but worth a try to check.

Mine took 5 and a half hours.

Mac OS equivalent is found in System Preferences under Energy Saver (the light bulb). I have used the settings in this screenshot for more than a dozen years and have not worn out a Mac yet. Since Hard Drives do wear out, I allow them to take a nap, The "Wake for network access" is likely unnecessary since the computer has insomnia.

Spinning Hard Drives have mechanical parts (and some very strong magnets inside the drive case). Caveat: start/stop of spinning hard drive also has wear factor.

Solid State Disks (SSD) are completely electronic (so personally have "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" unchecked).

Well I have made the setting switch.  I am now at over 7 hours for compiling.  I do have an SSD, so didn't expect this much time.  The horizontal bar shows over 50% done now.  So we will see what happens.  The original email said something like 30 -90 minutes.  I am way longer than that, even with SSD and a fast Windows laptop.

This is not entirely wrong but is misleading. Only with some HDDs in some condition will something similar to this statement be true. (e.g. WD green head parking. Also, start/stop means a completely different thing, and there's 2 different states too. In that case yes, start/stop is wearing, but it won't be triggered when you are actively compiling things for hours.

HDDs write/read has "no wear" (physically everything has wear, just that the wear tolerance here is negligible), and all SSDs writes has wears and can only be done a finite amount of times.

Compiling this for hours or even for days for low power machine is normal. It is a very big PBB, practically the biggest available. And Logos' compiler is very inefficient.

Well it finally completed in around 9-10 hours, with an SSD.  And there are 63 errors and 10,258 warnings.

Here are a few of the warnings:

And some of the errors:

7-9 hours later on a very fast gaming laptop with an ultra fast SSD, it worked.  I had given up after letting it run for 1 hr and then 2 hrs since my laptop is so fast.  What doesn't seem to work is the ability to "Upload" the file now that it's been built.  That is sad since rebuilding it takes so long.  No (easy) way to move it to my other computers running Logos ... a shame.  Looks really good though.

Hi Mark:

Yes, there is a size limit for uploaded PBs. I'm not sure what it is, but this one bursts it wide open.

This is what you do for your other computers:  Navigate to the Resource folder in your Logos data folder. In Windows, it's something like:  C:\Users\Robert\AppData\Local\Logos\Data\n2cbq2pd.jvv\ResourceManager\Resources.  Sort by size and find the largest '.lbspbb' file. It's likely the resource in question, but verify by date, also. (You could also find the full lbspbb file name in the Information window for the compiled resource, at the bottom.) Convey this file to each of your other computers via Dropbox, network copy, or something. If I were you, I would place in a folder with a very simple path, like 'C:\pbtemp'. In the Logos Command Box on each computer, type    scan c:\pbtemp   . Since the metadata syncs across desktops, all Logos needs is the compiled file.

There is a way—to manually backup the generated files and copy them to other machines.

E.g. in macOS, those files are in $HOME/Library/Application\ Support/Logos4/Data/*/ResourceManager/Resources/.

Those PBB has file extension *.lbspbb. Copy those only.

Paste them in a similar location on the other machine. Note that * is a wildcard.

On other platforms, you can find those path in wiki.

The whole process can be automated. And if you are on UNIX, I can give you my rsync script that automate this.

I tried rebuilding it last night but I cancelled it because it was going to take hours. If anyone can help me would appreciate it as now I can't rebuild it and its a dummy file. I asked for support from FL but they basically said "go ask the forum."

Chris,

your error is just that the file is in use somehow. Restart Logos from scratch (possible to an empty layout) and run the PB tool on it - it should work, but yes, it takes time.

Running Logos 9 latest (beta) version on Win 10

Sorry, it turns out that I was just impatient ... ran it overnight and it was ready to go.  Though it had 64 errors, I don't think that impacted the compile as it seems to all be there ... loving it!

To have wiki in the midst of my searches is brilliant!  Thanks for this!!
