VIMP in Ubuntu

Recommended Posts



You might have noticed new Labview distributions has a script in them that allows installing LabVIEW on computers that are not based on rpm. I easily installed LV 2011 on my Ubuntu Oneiric 32-bit. However I cannot install the VIPM! I tried different methods, created links to the missing libraries and finally I was able to see the installation screen. But when I click on Next couple of time and select where to install, the window just disappears and there are no outputs on the command line either. I was so happy when I managed to run the vipm installer after dealing with 8.2 runtime related problems but now I cannot move further on. Haven't anybody tried this before? Where can I look to see what is the problem? Any ideas?





Edit: I noticed that when I don't say sudo, installer won't start and I get the following error:

error 8 creating temporary LVSB resource file


LabVIEW caught fatal signal

8.2.1 - Received SIGSEGV

Reason: address not mapped to object

Attempt to reference address: 0x4

Segmentation fault


It looks like it cannot create a temporary folder since it does not have the rights, I guess we have to run the installer as a root?


P.S. This one seems to be a good method to get the run time running

I don't exactly know how but when I erased all the shortcuts I created in /usr/lib, the package manager installed with "sudo ./vipm-2.0.3-linux " command. I guess somehow it was able to see the runtime installation and the shortcuts I created were just confusing the installer. If you have any experience with VIMP installation in Ubuntu please add here or may be this topic can be deleted since it does not have a lot of information other than saying that it can be installed.
