Scidb 14.8 build with cluster_install issues


#1

Since I had no luck with the toolchain, chroot, postgresql deployment scipts, I went back to the deployment-14.8/cluster/cluster-install.

ISSUE1: check_port executable could not be run, I had to rebuild it manually from check_port.c – No biggie, just a heads-up for first timers.

ISSUE2: Still getting errors from cluster_install -s …/config.ini (where I put the output of the configurator html)
It does not install postgres, and does not create /opt/scidb/ (and yes, I ran this as root)

The big problem for us is that we are spreading the good word on SicDB, but our potential partners
are giving up after not succeeding with the install. Remember, these folks are reading the instructions for the first time
and many of them have not the time to try digging, I volunteered to walk in their footsteps by following the guide
as would they for the first time, and I am stuck too…

PS: passworldess ssh is well and working between root, scidb and the solo node in all its forms:, localhost, 127.0.0.1, 10.211.55.9, 0.0.0.0

I suggest you download the cluster_install er.

I just did that and ran it on a new Ubuntu 12.04 VM and it works fine.

We did change our download site to https and then the changes were pushed into the github deployment tree.

Let me know if that works for you.

I’ll also look to creating a new source tarball to allow building 14.8 from the https download site.

George:

Martin has updated both the source tar ball (see github.com/paradigm4/deployment) for 14.8, to reflect the upgrading to HTTPS.
Let us know if you run into problem with any of these two.
