When TPTP 4.4 comes out I decided to give it a try, I found that it
wasn't working on 64bit Linux due to some issues in recognizing and
starting the Integrated Agent Controller, so I opened bugs 196341 and
197783 that were promptly fixed. Unfortunately these bugs didn't make it
to release 22.214.171.124 so I had to install the 4.4.1 development, not a
problem it worked nicely.
Now I've updated Eclipse to 3.3.1 and installed TPTP 126.96.36.199, to my
surprise the fixes are still not present in this release. TPTP 188.8.131.52
still can't work on 64 bit Linux, this is very disappointing.
Ok, then, I'll download the latest TPTP 4.4.1 development, I know that
it works. Not! It doesn't work anymore, the IAC is started correctly but
the profiler refuses to connect to it, it keeps saying that the Agent
Controller is unavailable on port 10002. A quick look with netstat shows
that the Agent Controller is running and is waiting on port 10002, I
also see that something tried to connect to port 10002 so I think that
everything is setup correctly.
I found a bugzilla bug related to the dependency to openssl, I don't
think that this is the cause, the IAC is started correctly, I don't see
messages about unresolved dependencies anywere. I tried to enable
security, to explicitly add the permissions for the local host, without
any effect. I see a reference to a getting started document, but I can't
find it anywhere, does it have more informations on this issue ?
I'm sorry to complain like this, I see the value of TPTP, and I tried to
push its use to my co-workers over a commercial product, but these
issues are a show stopper. Now I'm forced to give up on TPTP and revert
back to this commercial product, I can't promote the use of TPTP when I
can't use it myself anymore.
Hope to see this fixed soon.
