Salome 5.1.5 on Fedora 14 (x86_64)

I have upgraded my Fedora 13 to F14 once the Fedora 14 was available. But Salome 5.1.4 did not work on my new system. It always crashed when it starts:

Searching /Kernel/Session in Naming Service +++++++++++++++++++++++Traceback (most recent call last):

— Error during Salome launch —

I had to upgrade Salome to 5.1.5 and I hope Salome 5.1.5 can work on my new system. It’s a pity that I have tried the compiled version: Debian 4.0 and 5.0, Scientific Linux 5.1, which cannot work on F14. I was exhausted, but I never give it up. I download the Salome 5.1.5 Mandriva 2010 version. On the final step of installation, the setup program says:

Wow, it works.

I recommend the Mandriva 2010 version of Salome 5.1.5 for Fedora 14.

However, The mesh component cannot be opened, although the geom component works well. Building symbolic link to necessary library can solve the problem.

$ su
# cd /usr/lib64/
# ln -sf
# ln -sf
# ln -sf
# ln -sf

I hope you enjoy the Salome 5.1.5 journey on Fedora 14. Start!

  1. Unfortunatly this did not work for me

    # ./runInstall
    sh: ./bin/SALOME_InstallWizard: /lib/ bad ELF interpreter: No such file or directory

  2. Hi, Robert

    Could you show me this command result on your machine? is it like this?

    $ ls -lah /lib/ld-*
    -rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 134K Jan 20 18:51 /lib/
    lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 10 Feb 9 12:54 /lib/ ->

  3. Hi Robert

    First install glibc as following

    [[email protected] Downloads]# yum install

    then now run ./runInstall. Now the installation wizard starts. Then use Martin’s suggestion in the above post
