Can somebody please tell me the optimum requirements for installing openACS-5.1.5??? I have already installed openACS-5.1.5 with AOLserver-4.x and postgres-7.x in my Fedora3 and it seemed to have worked well until I got stuck ...

...after filling up the form : Email, Firstname, Lastname, Domain, Blah Blah, etc. and clicking submit, I get stuck and it wont continue to the next page. I tried refreshing my localhost but it wont work either. The error logs shows an error like: "tclfilter: installer_handler etc." I tried reinstalling aolserver, postgres and openACS a number of times but I still get the same result.

I have already reformatted my computer for a fresh start. I need help Im new to these systems.

Ronald Gonzales,

Can you post the first error that is in the aolserver log file after it's been started or restarted? Include any prior lines, including warnings, that might indicate a problem. Also, what method or instructions did you follow to install?

Also, you might try getting help through the irc chat http://openacs.org/irc/

thanks torben, i cant recall the errors on the logs because i have already reformatted my computer for a fresh start. right now i have finished installing postgres 7.3.4 and following the installation notes on this site (http://openacs.org/doc/current/index.html). im still working on the aolserver now. hopefully everything goes well.

i have another question though. how important is threads for tcl? i have an installed tcl from the fedora distribution (tcl8.4.7) and the info exist tcl_platform(thread) command returns 0. on previous my installation i installed tcl8.4.6.tar.gz and configured it with --enable-threads (giving me 2 tcls) but my installation stalled. i was thinking it might be because i have 2 tcls. right now i dont want to install another tcl and im figuring out how i can enable threads with the current tcl installed from the fedora distribution. is there any conflict with having 2 tcls?

Hi Ronald,

You ask: How important is threads for tcl?

Enabling threads is very important. It is not uncommon for systems to have 2 or more versions of tcl installed. Be sure to specify the threaded version when building aolserver. I don't use fedora, but usually typing 'which tclsh' at the command line will let you know which versions are available in the system, and where they are located.

hey,
Post the Log onto net !!!
May b some one will help u

I installed evrythng on FC3 Box.Its Successful !!!!

Steps for installation:

1. Follow Installation specs. given by OpenACS.
2. Ensure TCl is threaded.
3. I WOULD ALWAYZ SUGGEST FOLKS TO REFER TO below LINK
http://openacs.org/doc/current/individual-programs.html
TO ACTUALLY FIND WHICH VERSIONS OF TCL,AOL,POSTGRES
HAS MAXIMUM COMPATABILITY.
4. Ensure that postgres /oracle is started b4 AOL
server is started.
5. Configure permissions properly.

Hi Ronald,
you could also have tried the OpenACS installer at
http://www.project-open.org/download/linux/index.html

Apparently it does a full install in a matter of minutes. I'm not sure if it supports Fedora 3 though..
