nipypclicrash -i -r crashfile.pklz fails with an error about inability to create the directory. even if I use the -w flag, it still is trying to create a mammothly long filepath to rerun the node under the specified -w location. How can I avoid this?
If your paths are too long, setting the
config['execution']['parameterize_dirs'] option to False will replace paths of >32character with their hash. You may need to rerun the workflow and obtain the new crashfile first
I use that option already. Is there anyway to make the crash file rerun also know to hash its working directory?
EDIT: actually, I think the directory argument serves this purpose
Exactly- except that within that directory it seems to be trying to make sub directories still, -w just changes the root from /tmp to /my/path/
Solution from @satra
Load the crashfile itself as a variable in a jupyter notebook or some other python terminal. Then, change the work dir of the node (which in my case wasn’t necessary), and then rerun.
from nipype.utils.filemanip import loadpkl
crashinfo = loadpkl(cpath)
crashinfo['node'].run() # re-creates the crash
Note the latest nipype read the docs manual March 22, 2017 refers to filemanip.loadflat for loading, but my install of nipype couldn’t find that. I might need to upgrade.
