Must login as scidb user and other install / compile feedbac



First, I wanted to say thank you and I am very excited to begin using SciDb. The compile / install process was relatively well documented and painless. I just wanted to give some notes about my experience in hopes that maybe it will help someone else.

SciDb version 12.3
running Ubuntu 11.10 on a VmWare player

  • could not get the binaries (for Ubuntu 11.04) installed. I was unable to get the system to install libprotobuf6, which was a required dependency (libprotobuf7 was installed)
  • I had the problem and used solution from this thread regarding initial configuration of test1: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=506&p=828&hilit=803#p828
  • took me awhile to realize that I needed to log in as scidb user. It probably should have been obvious to me but it wasn’t.

Thanks again for providing SciDb, I really appreciate it and am really looking forward to using it.
