Unfortunately, popa3d does not include any code to provide more verbose
error messages.  Whenever this error message is seen, the problem is
almost always obvious; but it might not have been obvious for you.

I suggest that you either check and double-check the things already
suggested to you (for example, did you check all parent directory
permissions? including the root directory?) or start popa3d under
"strace -fF".  With strace, you would get more than enough information.
