LabVIEW 8.0.1 RTE Red Hat Linux

Solved!
Go to solution
Highlighted

Hello,

 

I am trying to install the OpenG package manager 1.0, which requires the labview 8.0.1 RTE to install. I have a red hat / centos 5 system and labview 8.5. I have installed the labview 8.0.1 RTE according to http://digital.ni.com/Softlib.nsf/webPreview/7CE20CDA28E51AD08625711C006276B3?OpenDocument

 

Clicking on the vipm installer directley opens it up in labview 8.5 LLB manager, and I can't open any of the vi's in there. I think I need to open it with the 8.0.1 RTE. I see the only executable in the package is lvdark, which installs to /usr/local/lib/LabVIEW-8.0/ I presume this is what I need to use to run the vipm installer. However when I try to run this I get the error

 

/usr/local/lib/liblvrtdark.so.8.0: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
even when running as root.

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

I saw that there were no replies to you post, hopefully this will start some activity. I will also try and see what I can find out about this.

Hello,

 

I have an idea...but not sure if it will work. Close LabVIEW 8.5, and then open LabVIEW 8.0.1. Then click the VIPM installer directly. What happens now?

You might want to check out How do I use VIPM to get OpenG libraries installed onto LabVIEW?

 

Also, There is a support forum for VIPM, here.

Hi Claire,

 

I'm one of the VIPM support engineers, so I'm following this thread...

 

Forgetting VIPM for a minute, here is the fundamental problem:

 

 

  • An executable application for Linux was built in LabVIEW 8.0.1.
  • The user has the LabVIEW 8.0.1 run-time engine installed
  • The user has LabVIEW 8.5 development environment installed, too
  • When the user tries to run the build executable application, it opens in the LabVIEW 8.5 development environment (LLB manager, specifically)

 

 

Now, that executable application for Linux that was build in LabVIEW 8.0.1 just happens to be VIPM.  And, our documentation doesn't cover this issue, as it's likely a bug in the LabVIEW installers or in the user's OS configuration. 

 

Thanks,

Yes Jim, this is precisley the problem.

 

What I want to know is how can I force a program to open up using the labview 8.01 RTE?

My guess is that this is through the 'lvdark' executable (since it is the only executable in the RTE package), though I can't run this directley.

I have installed the labview 8.01 RTE in the reccomended way on what should be a supported os configuration.

I am sorry that I have been confused. Jim, thank you for clarifying the issue a bit. Unfortunately, I am still a bit confused....What program are you trying to "force  to open" using the LabVIEW 8.0.1 RTE?

Hey,

 

Just to update you. I downloaded and installed the VIPM...and everything seems to be working. (I think) Are you still having problems? Could you describe in more detail the steps to reproduce this problem.
