Compilation of Salome 6.5.0 on Scientific Linux 5.5

Posted by Michael Hansen at July 25. 2012

Hello fellow Salome users,

We have compiled Salome 6.5.0 on Scientific Linux 5.5 (which is based on Redhat) and encountered some difficulties (little bug) - but now it works fine. Here is how we did for all interested :

version 6.5.0 Installation

  • prerequisite : gd-devel
  • Get install_wizard from www.salome-platform.org
  • untar file install_wizard_6.5.0_64bit.tar.gz
tar xvfz install_wizard_6.5.0_64bit.tar.gz
cd install_wizard_6.5.0
  • launch runInstall command
export DISPLAY=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:0.0
./runInstall
  • choose install source and compile
  • there is a bug in libtool under JOBMANAGER_BUILD directory. so to correct it you have to:
    • wait for the error compilation at JOBMNAGER level
    • modify /vevey/apps/salome/salome-6.5.0/JOBMANAGER_BUILD/libtool file
    • change line 157 as :
echo="echo"
    • launch in /vevey/apps/salome/salome-6.5.0
build.sh JOBMANAGER
  • launch instllation and compilation of missing modules (SAMPLES, TUTORIAL, HOMARD, xdata, HXX2SALOME, HXX2SALOMEDOC, DOCUMENTATION)
  • to relaunch install and compile, first remove Paraview-3.14.0_build and cgnslib-3.1.3_build directories in /vevey/apps/salome/salome-6.5.0.

Hope this helps others and maybe the development team could repair the little bug too :)

Have fun, cheers,

Hi.  I've searched for quite some time for the source for the install wizard (the link provided in this article www.salome-platform.org

is too general)

 

Specifically, I am unable to find:

install_wizard_6.5.0_64bit.tar.gz

Thanks,

Lenn

Hello Michael,

Thank you for your message.

Indeed, there is the problem with compiling of JOBMANAGER and YACS modules on some platforms. It is caused by the way the sources packages are prepared for SALOME Installation Wizard. Actually, the problem is reproduced only when older versions of GNU auto-tools (automake/autoconf/libtool) are installed on the target computer.

This problem was found after releasing of SALOME 6.5.0 and fixed in the development branch of SALOME series 6x. The fix will be included into the next version of SALOME. The changes can be referenced by the following git commits:

JOBMANAGER: http://git.salome-platform.org/gitweb/?p=JOBMANAGER_SRC.git;a=commit;h=0ebc046515c565c45cd6cbaec7a20a0bbde6d41f

YACS: http://git.salome-platform.org/gitweb/?p=YACS_SRC.git;a=commit;h=702271258a53c937a4b439e7d7fb3f82e873e43f

Regards,
Vadim.
