Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Res: Re: Res: Re: Res: Re: Res: Re: xowiki error using ns_eval

Are you sure, you installed XOTcl in this installation?

Run the following command in your ds/shell

   set _ "$::xotcl::version$::xotcl::patchlevel"

For me, sourcing via ns_eval works (with the request-monitor installed as you have apparently). Try in your ds/shell

   set dir [acs_root_dir]
   ns_eval source $dir/packages/acs-tcl/tcl/request-processor-procs.tcl

If the command above does not work, one has to look closer
at the versions. If this works, what can i do to reproduce your problem?

Hi Gustaf,

If we run:

set _ "$::xotcl::version$::xotcl::patchlevel"

We got


But, if we run:

set dir [acs_root_dir]
ns_eval source $dir/packages/acs-tcl/tcl/request-processor-procs.tcl

We got a permanent error on every request:

::xo::cc: unable to dispatch method 'user_id' during '::xo::cc user_id'

Tell me the package versions that need to see exactly

The good news is that the problem apparently does not exist in cvs head, so there is a certain chance that it will heal once you have the chance to update.

Please check the versions of the following packages on your system by runing the command below in your ds/shell:

foreach pk {acs-kernel xotcl-core xotcl-request-monitor} {
   append _ "$pk: " [apm_version_get -package_key $pk -array ""; set x "$(version_name), $(release_date)"] \n
set _

and report it back.

After upgrading in our main site the core to 5.4 and xo* packages to newer versions we still have problems with this, the problem now seems to be the one described in the first post of this thread:

invalid database id: "nsdb0"
while executing
"ns_db poolname $handle"

Our system right now:

acs-kernel: 5.4.3, 2008-10-03
xotcl-core: 0.100.1, 2009-01-23
xotcl-request-monitor: 0.40, 2007-10-14

and xotcl 1.6.1 (installed from debian package) which should fix the problem.

We have also tried xotcl-request-monitor 0.43 and xotcl library 1.6.6 to no avail (same error) we have tried reloading libraries via ns_eval with both performanceModeP on and off for the sake of testing.

any ideas or anything else to try?

Thanks in advance,

Dear Raúl, i haved tried the following commands in ds/shell
   set dir [acs_root_dir]
   ns_eval source $dir/packages/acs-tcl/tcl/request-processor-procs.tcl
on the server, which comes closest to your configuration, and it works fine:
Server:    4.5.0p1 (AOLserver)
Tcl:       8.5.9
XOTcl:     1.6.6
Tdom:      0.8.3
libthread: /usr/local/aolserver/lib/thread2.6.5/
Tcllib:    /usr/local/aolserver45-HEAD/lib/tcllib1.10
acs-kernel:            2008-10-03, 5.4.3
xotcl-core:            2011-01-14, 0.118
xotcl-request-monitor: 2008-10-04, 0.42
xowiki:                2011-01-14, 0.136
xowf:                  2010-06-17, 0.30d
i would recommend XOTcl 1.6.6 and xotcl-core 0.118
