TODO in installing stuff in Slackware64 13...


Hi Forum

This is a short Tasklist about stuff I am currently trying to Build (OSS) and/or Install ( Non-OSS ) In Slackware64 13.

Non OSS :

Pro Engineer Wildfire 3 for Linux 32bits :

This calls for OpenMotif 2.2.x which I do not yet have installed ( working on this ) and Multilib, which I already have enabled.

Intel C++ and Fortran Compilers for Linux :

Those require multilib, but when I source the 32bit environment to install them, the installer script still fails to find libstdc++5, glibc, and other stuff...

I will have to hack into that script to find out wassup.

Ansys 12 :

Another thing that wants libXm.so.3 to work properly ( to work at all is more correct ), hopefully this is the 64bit version, so no fuss about 32bit environment.


For this last one, I will try to "lie" making a simlink to libXm.so.4 called libXm.so.3.... Lets hope the binaries are dumb enough to take this...


OSS :

Wings3d :

I'm working on this one, already grabbed the SlackBuilds of the dependencies.


Deal 2 :

I have already created a package of the major dependency for this, which is the PETSc library, lets hope I have configured the build options correctly so as to build Deal.


OpenCASCADE :

There are lots of options when configuring this to build, somehow, there is something that I am missing because, despite the fact that the package build allright, I do not manage to get GMSH ( a geometry builder/mesher ) to link with OpenCASCADE so as to have the parasolid format import feature enabled. GMSH builds allright though.


XFoil :

This is a wing profile analyzer which uses the vorticity panel technique to estimate the pressure and air velocity around a 2d wing profile.


AVL :

This is the Big Bro' of XFoil; Using the same algorythmic methodology, this will decompose the whole of an aircraft lifting surfaces planform in 2d panels that will be analyzed to estimate the stability derivatives. ( In short, the kinematic response of the aircraft ( Momenta about CG ) as a response to control surfaces Input )
Very useful in preliminary design to acess the stability of the aircraft, and estimate the coefficients of its open loop transfer function.




So Slackers, If someone is currently involved with similar problems of building / installing some of this stuff, I will gratefully share my experiences, failures and successes in acheiving this.

BRGDS

this could work, as long as program does not make calls to non-existing functions, or functions work as program expected them to. of cource maybe program does a version check on the library binary before doing anything. (i would add such a control if my program only works with one version of the library).
