"/media/..." makes me wonder what medium Ash is and the file system used
thereon. It's not by chance some kind of USB stick with a FAT file
system? Such a constellation when building on Linux already caused
trouble in the past.

There should be a file
after uconvmsg root.txt ran, similar a file
as an output of uconvmsg fr.txt

If not, maybe shortening the paths helps, e.g. build tree in
instead of

Though if it's a FAT system I'd ditch that attempt rather sooner than
later anyway..
