Running "Open System Architect"


Hi:

I was searching around for an open source data modeling software package and the only reasonable sounding one I located was something called Open System Architect.

I'm running 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04 by the way.

I downloaded the OpenSystemArchitect-4.0.0-linux-x86-64bit.tar.gz package, and extracted everything, ending up with the following files:

me@mymachine:/mnt/Development/Dev_OSA/OpenSystemArchitect-4.0.0-linux-x86-64bit/bin$ ls -l
total 35740
-rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 6342883 Oct 3 2005 CBDReg
-rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 82956 Oct 3 2005 odbc++
-rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 7497128 Oct 3 2005 ODBCBrowser
-rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 15416661 Oct 3 2005 OpenSystemArchitect
-rwxr-xr-x 1 me me 7248304 Oct 3 2005 qtodbc++

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to execute any of them. The readme file included by the author says:

QUOTE:

Please visit the following sites for information on how to
install, execute, use, and contribute to the improvement of
this application.

http://www.codebydesign.com
http://sourceforge.net/projects/systemarchitect

END QUOTE

But I was unable to locate anything there that looked like instructions. Has anyone installed this? What do I need to do to run this application. I use qt on several other things so I'm assuming that isn't the problem, but ...

Thanks for any advice.

OpenSystemArchitect is the executable. I just downloaded it and it executed fine on my Slackware-current machine. Run it from a terminal and see what messages get thrown.

Thanks much for the response.

From the directory where I extracted the files I ran: ./OpenSystemArchitect

The message I receive is:
./OpenSystemArchitect: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I can't locate libstdc++.so.5 on my machine, but I'm not sure if I went looking in the right place.

I'm not sure if this means I should be moving OSA to some other location and running it from there, or if I need to download some other libraries. If the latter, I would have thought it would tell me that in the readme file.

Does this give you an idea what I need to do?

Again - Thanks.

To find the library
Code:
locate libstdc++.so.5
I would guess you don't have it installed though. It's an older version and you probably have libstdc++.so.6. You'll have to figure out how to install libstdc++.so.5 in Ubuntu. Maybe it's in the repos and it's trivial, I don't use Ubuntu so I don't know. You can also execute
Code:
ldd ./OpenSystemArchitect
to see if you have any other missing dependencies.

Again, thanks very much.

That libstdc++.so.5 is the only dependency "not found" so I guess I'll poke around and see if I can locate it somewhere.

Have a great weekend ...

I found the library in among a very extensive list in the Ubuntu repository so feel a little sheepish.

I installed the right one and now Open System Architect starts up just fine. I haven't actually attempted to use it, but will assume that this is solved, and mark it as such.

Again, thanks very much for pointing me in the right direction.
