We are trying to install LabVIEW 8.6.1 on a Redhat Enterprise 6 64bit distrib (Linux header is 2.6.32).
After having installed 32bit libraries that may be needed by LabVIEW, we started LabVIEW installation (without VISA nor GPIB) - successfully...
But on LabVIEW startup, we got an error : "Abort (core dumped)" - without details. See core dump enclosed...
Now we are a bit stuck, since the error message is not very detailled... Someone encountered such difficulties on linux 64bit ?
Thank you for your support and advices !
I'm going to look into this. LabVIEW 2011 was the first release to officially support RHEL6. Is there a specific reason that you are using 8.6.1?
Thank you for your answer, we were not aware that LV2011 was the first release to support RHEL6...
We have to use LV8.6.1 because it's one of our customer needs ...
I tried to reproduce your issue, but I was unsuccessful. It is possible that we have a difference in packages. I have attached the output of "rpm -qa" to this post. Do a dif against yours and see what I might have that you do not.
I tried to install or uninstall packages so that my config matches best yours. Now only a few minor package differ from the 2 configs (*-devel, emacs, alsa, gimp ...).
Then I reinstalled LabVIEW, but I still have the same error message...
Enclosed 3 files :
- the list of package I had at first
- the list of package I have now to match your config.
- the new core dump I have (looks like pretty the same as the previous one)
My next question is what kind of machine is this? How new is it, what processor does it have, and how much memory? It could be that we have an issue with CPU information and an old library.
We have a quite new machine, 12 CPU (Intel Xeon X5660 @ 2.8 Ghz), 11.6 Go RAM.
It is possible that it might be the machine, but we are not sure. Do you have a copy of LabVIEW 2011? If so, can you try and in stall it and launch (required a couple of extra packages to be installed for me) and see if it reports the same error? If it does, then it may be that the CPU Information DLL we have needs to be updated. If 2011 launches fine, then it is probably a different issue.
We tried to install LV2011 but had some problems :
1) during installation : a database error (see LV2011_install_error.txt)
2) while launching : another error and a core dump (see LV2011_launch_error.txt)
We only installed a new package (libXinerama.i686) for labview to run. Is there other packages to install (see rpm_list)?
I'm not sure on error 1. I was unable to reproduce that. In the end, it means that LabVIEW will just run really, really slow. Have you tried reinstalling to see if the error does not happen the second time? Since this is a fresh install of LabVIEW, you should be able to rename /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW 2012VIObjCache/lv2011corecache.vidb to VIObjCache/objFileDB.vidb. This will in the end solve this issue.
For error 2, this sounds like a localization issue. What is you locale set as (run 'locale')? Mine is the following:
ok, we tried to run the locale command as Randy advised us above, but there was an error running that command, that we couldn't solve...
So we decided to retry installing LV on a brand new installation of RHEL6.
We added packages from Randy's rpm_list file, and another one (zlib-1.2.3-25.el6.i686) that was missing to install LV.
Everything worked ok, and we launched LV with success. The list of needed package is enclosed (some of them may be unuseful, but in doubt...)
Thank you Randy for the support.
Was this a new machine or the same machine? I'm just currious. Thanks.
And you are very welcome for the support. I'm glad to know things are working for you. There is an issue with building executables and then running them with versions before LabVIEW 2011 because of SELinux issues. To resolve this issue, run as root:
execstack -s /usr/local/lv86/AppLibs/lvapp.lib
Glad I could be of service.
That was the same machine, with RHEL6 reinstalled from scratch.
Maybe there was a bad install of something. I guess that happens from time to time. Glad everything is working and thanks for answering my questions as well.
