Any BRL-CAD gurus here?


Yo!

I have been trying to install such a Linux freeware as BRL-CAD. It does not install. If you have any any knowledge of this, please reply.

What problems are you getting? Did you follow these instructions?

Could you run it from a command ine and post your error messages.

Cool. Somebody knows something, grate! Thanks for quick reply.

Yes, I followed the instructions. It actually installed smoothly, a good sign, but it didnt start.

1. How to make that path in Redhat Linux 9.0? I tried something and maybe it worked.

2. Which command starts the BRL-CAD? Is it "mged"? If that is so then I got: "Couldn't find proper library 2.0" or something like that.

Conclusion:

The BRL-CAD 6.02 rpm does not work in Redhat 9.0. There is backward barrier.

So...Try to compile it with gcc

Then I tried to recompile it, but I could not even untar the crypted zip file. I downloaded enigma source, but there were problems when compiling it. No hope with my knowledge.

I hope that I am wrong and all my attemps to install it are really bad. I really would like to use it.

Did you get a crypt key? I've just read the licence agreement and you're supposed to fax in for a key.

I cannot give it to you. Sorry. I promised and I want to keep my promise too for BRL-CAD company.

Well...maybe we need to proceed another way.

I will give you the BRL-CAD notices in accurate form. Then, perhaps we can proceed in this matter.

Best way is to run the full path from a console and then copy and paste everything from the run line to the end.
