Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: OpenACS Installation. Configuring AOLServer

Posted by Thelma Pinto on
Thanks Dave, but i have been following the same link ie OpenACS Unix Install.

all that you have mentioned has already been done.
Could you tell me where could i get the aolserver3.3+ad13 tarball ? I presently have the beta version, and i have problems during installation with the  aolserver3.3+ad13 beta version.

It looks like you already have the version we've been referring to and using. I think that "beta" was supposed to refer to the version of oacs that was supposed to be included, aolserver. What sort of problems did you have with that?

Also, did setting up the serverroot (which sets up pageroot) get you to the "Welcome to OpenACS page"?

Yes i have got the and in the aolserver bin directory. i installed it from the uncompressed aolserver-3.3 ad 13 version. also im using nsd-oracle
    as the script.

    in nsd.tcl
    set serverroot  "/home/${user_account}/web/${server}"
    set pageroot                ${serverroot}/www

During installation of aolserver3.3ad13 beta version:
after gmake , towards the end i get:

./../compat/strtod.c:92:44: missing terminating " character
./../compat/strtod.c:15:170: possible start of unterminated string literal
gmake[2]: *** [strtod.o] Error 1
gmake[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/aolserver/aolserver/tcl7.6/unix'
gmake[1]: *** [all] Error 2
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/aolserver/aolserver/tcl7.6'
gmake: *** [libtcl76] Error 2

Similar errors after gmake install

and then only translate.ini file is present in the bin directory.

Any solutions?

What platform are you building on?

What is the output of:

uname -a
gmake -v
cc -v

You are getting compile errors with the AOLserver code.

Hi Mat,

The platform is Linux 7.2

GNU Make version 3.79.1
