how to run nightly builds

• Jan 30, 2010 - 16:55

My system:
Ubuntu 9.10

I downloaded a linux nightly build, however, I am not sure how to run it. All I have is an mscore-r2649 file, and I'm not sure what to do with it.

Help would be appreciated.

Isaac.

Yes there is a program called mscore-r2649 in the folder. After uncompressing, when I run it in the terminal this is what happens:

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ mscore-r2649
mscore-r2649: command not found

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ ./mscore-r2649
bash: ./mscore-r2649: Permission denied

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ sudo ./mscore-r2649
[sudo] password for isaacd:
sudo: ./mscore-r2649: command not found

I did this:

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ sudo chmod a+x mscore-r2649

then I tried this:

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ ./mscore-r2649
./mscore-r2649: symbol lookup error: ./mscore-r2649: undefined symbol: _ZN11QVectorData8allocateEii

I also tried:

isaacd@dracula:~/scores/mscorenight$ sudo ./mscore-r2649
./mscore-r2649: symbol lookup error: ./mscore-r2649: undefined symbol: _ZN11QVectorData8allocateEii

Nothing happened.

The Linux nightly build is an executable -- but it needs its libraries to be installed, they are not included in the executable file

$ file mscore-r2673
mscore-r2673: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.8, not stripped

if that helps

If it isn't running then it may be that it is missing a library or two, to find out run

sudo ldd mscore-r2673

this should display something like

$ ldd mscore-r2673
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xffffe000)
libQtDesigner.so.4 => /usr/lib/qt4/libQtDesigner.so.4 (0xb7180000)
libQtScript.so.4 => /usr/lib/qt4/libQtScript.so.4 (0xb6f80000)
libQtSvg.so.4 => /usr/lib/qt4/libQtSvg.so.4 (0xb6f3c000)
libQtGui.so.4 => /usr/lib/qt4/libQtGui.so.4 (0xb669c000)
libXext.so.6 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.6 (0xb668c000)
libX11.so.6 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.6 (0xb6573000)
libQtXml.so.4 => /usr/lib/qt4/libQtXml.so.4 (0xb652e000)
...
libFLAC.so.8 => /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8 (0xb5a7f000)
libvorbisenc.so.2 => /usr/lib/libvorbisenc.so.2 (0xb5984000)
libvorbis.so.0 => /usr/lib/libvorbis.so.0 (0xb595a000)
libogg.so.0 => /usr/lib/libogg.so.0 (0xb5953000)
libuuid.so.1 => /lib/libuuid.so.1 (0xb594e000)
libexpat.so.1 => /usr/lib/libexpat.so.1 (0xb592d000)

if, instead of saying something like
libFLAC.so.8 => /usr/lib/libFLAC.so.8
it says
libFLAC.so.8 => not found
then this library is missing and you will need to install it.

The svn's need Qt version 4.6.x -- if you have 4.5.x then it may not run.

I had Qt 4.5.3 installed (actually the whole SDK) and I got exacly the same message "undefined symbol: _ZN11QVectorData8allocateEii" when I tried to run the latest nightly (r2705).

After installing Qt 4.6.1, the nightly build runs regularly (again I installed the whole SDK, but I think it does not make a real difference from the library-only package).
