  • A Salome 2.2.1 minimal VMware machine

    Posted by ROBERT Jerome at December 21. 2005
    Hello,

    I made a minimal VMware machine to run Salome 2.2.1.

    I am currently uploading it on Opencascade FTP server and it should be available in 4 hours.

    I remind that VMware distribute a FREE player which allow to run virtual machines.

    This VM is built with a minimal (base system + X11 server) current Debian Etch distribution.

    The zip size is 397MB, nearly half for the OS and half for Salome and prerequisites.

    I also wrote a document describing how I made this VM. It's available on Salome2 RNTL Project page in SP5 theme.

    Regards,

    Jerome Robert

        Hi Erwan

        I have found it on the ftp www.opencascade.com with the login salomedata.

        The password for this ftp was sent by e-mail the 21/03/2005.

        Cheers,

        Christophe

          Hi

          The size of the file on the ftp server is only 13 Mo.

          Can you please upload it again?

          Or is the file on another ftp account?

          Thanks

          Christophe

            The Opencascade FTP server do not support REST in STORE command. I guess this is for security reasons. I cannot upload 397Mo without REST so I am waiting for IT people being back from holidays, to fix the problem on the FTP server. Regards

              Hi Jérôme,

              Maybe you can put your tarball on the cea ftp server
              (ftp.cea.fr login : ftp passwd : email address) in

              incoming/y2k01/jr

              cd incoming/y2k01
              mkdir jr
              cd jr
              put ......

              I will be very interested in testing your developpement ... :)

              Cheers,

                  Great !!

                  It works ... I just decrease the amount of memory from 512 to 400 'cause my
                  laptop got only 512 ... Salome starts but :
                    1. I don't see the SMESH module in bar
                    2. when I stop it and I "right click" on "terminal emulator", nothing happens !
                         Maybe it's normal ! I don't know vmware at all.

                  Cheers,

                                  E.A.

                  PS : I'm now reading (on SP5) how you done that !

                    SMESH do not work because I made an error in /opt/SALOME2/envSalome-V2_2_1.sh, line 10 and 11. You will see it's easy to fix ;).

                    I did not install the xterm package, that's why the terminal emulator menu do not work. To get a console acces, you need to do a CTRL+ALT+F1-6. It's not so easy because CTRL+ALT is the default key to quit VMWare.
                    Adding pref.hotkey.shift = "true" to the vmware preference file should solve the problem.

                      Hi Jérôme

                      I've downloaded and tested your VMware machine. It's much faster than I
                      expected!

                      For testing purpose, I have created a couple of qemu images,
                      but they are very very slow.

                      It's amazing to see Salome running on Windows!

                      However, there are some bugs in your image (I can't open an OCC view for instance), but I think it could be solved by using newer prerequisites and newer versions of Salome.

                      Thanks for your contribution.

                      Christophe
