Problems about Building SciDB v13.9 from Source code


#1

Hi, I’m trying to develop user-defined operators for scidb and now am building the scidb version 13.9 from the source code, according to the deployment/deploy.sh in the source code file.
Here are the steps I took to build on a fresh Ubuntu 12.4 according to the example in the deployment/deploy.sh

1. enable root(sudo passwd root), install expect, cmake, openssh-server,
2. sudo su
    ssh-copy-id -i  /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@localhost
    ./deploy.sh  access  root  scidbscidb  /root/.ssh/id_rsa.pub localhost

    ./deploy.sh  prepare_toolchain localhost

    cd /home/scidb/scidb139 (this is where the code resides, "cd my_scidb_svn_trunk")
    mkdir /tmp/my_packages_path
   cmake .
   make
   ./deploy.sh build_fast /tmp/my_packages_path

The problem I ran into with the last command was like this:

dpkg-genchanges: error: cannot fstat file ../scidb-13.9_0-_amd64.deb: No such file or directory
dpkg-buildpackage: error: dpkg-genchanges gave error exit status 2
dpkg-buildpackage failed

While those steps work fine with the version 12.3 code, which is really weird.
Could anybody help me with this? Thanks

I can’t offer any help, but I’m running into the same situation.


#3

SciDB 13.9 build instructions have been added to the bottom of the 13.9 release page.
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=1219&p=2397
Internal developers at Paradigm4 follow these instructions and have no problem building SciDB. So I believe it should work for you.


#4

Did anyone figured out a solution? I’m running into the same problem when installing v14.3.


#5

This has been fixed in 14.8.

For anyone building 13.9 do the following before building:

export REVISION=6551

For 13.12 do

export REVISION=6856
