Hi

I want to tell you about my horrific experience with the Integrated Agent
Controller. All of this is happening on the most recent Ubuntu on a x86.
-first I tried installing tptp in my existing eclipse installation. I was
getting errors about some libraries not being found and problems with the
VM, etc.
-so I tried the standalone AGent Controller. Doesn't compile... I was
missing an obscure library that I managed to find now, but had already...
-downloaded the "all-in-one" eclipse from the tptp website. This is
'all-in-one' so it must work right? It didn't. I had to go into the log
files and find out that i was missing the above library so I installed
that. Then some more errors that I fixed manually. By that time I heard
from someone on IRC that java 6 is not supported. It would be nice of that
was mentioned more clearly on the website.
- I moved everything to Java 1.5 and tried again. Now I wasn't getting
anything because the process froze because the agent was generating a
3GIG! log file. I'm not sure if this is intended behaviour. When profiling
anything, the profiler would keep on running after i close Eclipse and the
workspace would remain locked.
-Now I want to download the standalone agent again but the tptp download
site is not resolving for me.

Extra:
-At any stage, pressing "Test Availability" for the agent controller would
freeze Eclipse.
- I still get errors like:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.tptp.platform.iac.administrator 4 0 2007-08-01
12:18:49.312
!MESSAGE [startIAC: Error Stream] RAServer generated the following output:
[: 46: ==: unexpected operator

That's about a day worth of my experience. I hope it is of some help to
you to improve the user-friendliness of tptp.

thank you

guy

Are you running on Linux? I'm assuming yes because of your mention of a
library. I also had some problems using the IAC (from tptp installed via
Europa Discovery Site), and this is what I did to get it working:

1. chmod all tptp libraries to be executable:

chmod +x
eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.tptp.platform.ac.linux_ia32_4.4. 0.v200706020100/agent_controller/bin/*

2. installed gnu c++:
(in ubuntu)
sudo apt-get install libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2

3. added a TEMP enviroment variable to my session profile pointing to
/tmp directory. In .profile:

export TEMP=/tmp

After these steps everything worked for me.
