Unhappy Problem copying files from a remote server


Hey guys,

I have a problem while copying files from a remote computer to my local one using the scp command. I am sure that I am using it correctly, please check it below:

---
blah@blah.com:~/g4work> scp blah2@blah2.com:IndirectMethod_Spher...s/H_1.mac.root .
---

What I get in return (instead of the statement saying 100% of file copied) is:

---
On this machine the G4SYSTEM=Linux-g++
---

The interesting point is that the above returned statement is one of the Environment variables set on both the machines that are necessary to work with a toolkit called Geant4. Here is what I get when I type 'printenv | grep G4' just to show you (note the statement in bold):

---
G4LEVELGAMMADATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/PhotonEvaporation2.0
G4INSTALL=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02
G4LEDATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/G4EMLOW6.9
G4NEUTRONHPDATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/G4NDL3.13
G4VIS_BUILD_OPENGLX_DRIVER=1
G4RADIOACTIVEDATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/RadioactiveDecay3.2
G4ABLADATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/G4ABLA3.0
G4LIB=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/lib
G4VIS_BUILD_RAYTRACERX_DRIVER=1
G4LIB_BUILD_SHARED=1
G4VIS_USE_OPENGLX=1
G4UI_USE_TCSH=1
G4VIS_USE_RAYTRACERX=1
G4REALSURFACEDATA=/home/blah/geant4/geant4.9.3.p02/data/RealSurface1.0
G4SYSTEM=Linux-g++
G4WORKDIR=/home/blah/g4work
---

The other thing that I would like to mention is that these Geant4 Env. Variables are loaded each time a new (bash) shell is started as a result of the bash login script.

I would be grateful if someone could try to help me.
Thank you.

Maybe I am wrong here, but shouldn't it be
Code:
scp mrig_al@ME-SB140CLC:/IndirectMethod_SphereDose_04.08.2010_ExtendedPhys_TEST/mac_files/H_1.mac.root .
instead of
Code:
scp mrig_al@ME-SB140CLC:IndirectMethod_SphereDose_04.08.2010_ExtendedPhys_TEST/mac_files/H_1.mac.root .
Sidenote: Please post code in code-tags, this way your code will not be shorted to mail-addresses.

No, I tried it out but it gives the same statement. Thanks anyway!

I found that on commenting out the shell script in the bashrc file, this transfer works. But this isn't a solution, rather its a work around and impractical. I would still appreciate suggestions. Thanks!

Try redirecting the output of the sourced file in your .bashrc to /dev/null

Eg in your .bashrc
Code:
. /opt/geant4/setup.sh
to
Code:
. /opt/geant4/setup.sh > /dev/null 2>&1
Or perhaps only source it for interactive shells
Code:
if [ "$PS1" ] ; then
   . /opt/geant4/setup.sh
fi

No problem. I'm also in HEP and have had similar problems. I really hate how every 2nd piece of software in particle physics seem to require sourcing some nasty scripts that pollute your environment variables.

Cheers,
