server on os x 10.7

PostPosted: Mon Mar 19, 2012 7:37 pm

Hello:

Has anyone had any success installing/deploying server on os x 10.7? There have been several changes (unbeknownst to me before beginning this odyssey on 10.7) from the 10.6 version.

After much effort, it seems I have Postgresql 8.3.4 working, but it looks like OMERO is having trouble with the Ice-3.3.1 binaries (unfortunately I don't have the logs handy right now, I'll have to follow up with these).

So I tried to compile all the Ice dependencies from source, from the Zero-C Ice dependencies download. That worked fine until I got to Ice itself, which fails to compile. I've tried this new, not-working-with-Ice 10.7 clang compiler, and managed to install the legacy gcc 4.2 and neither one has been successful. I also applied this patch

http://www.zeroc.com/forums/bug-reports ... ilers.html

and was unsuccessful in getting Ice-3.3.1 working. The patch application belched up many errors, something about 'chunks' and didn't seem to solve the compilation errors.

It took several days of tinkering, scouring the web, changing permissions, seeking tribal knowledge just to get Postgresql 8.3 working and I've been compiling dependencies to dependencies but have had little success. After my preliminary testing on Os 10.6 on a laptop (and deciding an Apple server would be a good idea because it would be straightforward to set up and manage), Os X 10.7 on my new box has rocked my world and shut me down completely. It is a nightmare. I may have to switch to a plan b and start from scratch with a linux box, but I thought I would check with the community.

Has anyone out there had any success installing an OMERO server on OS X 10.7?

Thanks,
Karl G.

How are you installing dependencies? Have you tried homebrew yet?

Just a heads up, we're also working on backporting patches from Ice 3.4 to 3.3 to enable a clang compile on Lion. See https://www.openmicroscopy.org/community/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=1070&p=3878&hilit=lion#p3888p

We're very sorry to hear that you've had such a rough time. As soon as we get clang-built Ice 3.3 binaries, we'll certainly make them available for download. That being said, for other dependencies I'd encourage you to try homebrew. After having used MacPorts, we can highly suggest it. Further, if you are just evaluating OMERO and don't plan to go into production until, say, the summer, you could use the development version which has support for Ice 3.4, which we have gotten to build on Lion.

Let us know how else we might help.

Cheers,
~Josh

Fantastic. Thanks for tips and the availability of Ice binaries; I'll give them a try. I know this was not trivial to build (at least from my perspective) so I'm really grateful for the assist.

It's been a few years since I've relied on OS X heavily, so I have to admit Homebrew is something I was unaware of. I'll definitely try this Homebrew approach at my next opportunity. I've messed around with macports in the past and I recall some frustration, so I avoided macports this time around and tried to do this all with manual building and installs (except Postgresql, I used their binary installer, which was no problem on 10.6 but I got caught by suprise with 10.7). I installed the apple java from their developer site. I'm not sure what other option(s) are out there. I've gone down so many rabbit holes on this 10.7 initiation experience I doubt I could ever repeat what I did to get things configured to this point.

I'm convinced the OMERO project will enable biomedical studies on an entirely new scale and level of sophistication, so keep up this great work. Thanks again.

Hello All:

I still seem to be having some trouble getting OMERO 4.3 running on OS X 10.7.

I tried the Ice binaries posted (much thanks) but ran into errors about being built for 64-bit architecture (which doesn't make sense seeing as this is a 64 bit intel Core i5 machine)--I figured it must have been something I messed up with all my previous hacksaw work trying to build ICE dependencies, trying different compilers, compiler flags etc. So I did a clean install of os 10.7 (no small task in itself: you need to know the double secret key combination, reboot while holding down the keys, have liberal web access, let the box verify itself and download the os over several hours--no recovery usb or cd provided or hard drive partition with the os).

Fast forward a day, and I've got a clean install of os x 10.7, developer tools, developer command line extensions installed, apple java development installed, now with a keyboard, internet connection and monitor because remote desktop and closed network was hopeless.

So I followed the homebrew bootstrap script instructions, ran brew doctor, fixed the few small issues, and things seemed to go fine until trying to download the tar ball for OMERO 4.3:

Karl's Homebrew attempt:
#*******************************************************************************************************************************
won't work unfortunately--I can't append because it is too many characters, and I can't attach any files.

I can send directly if you tell me where to send the output.

Hi Karl,

A couple of things:
* You can always post your results to https://gist.github.com/ if they are too long for the forums.
* My github repository was missing the new v.4.3.4. "install omero43" should now work. Sorry about that.
* The error you are seeing while trying to run "python build.py" is

Code: Select all
Cannot run program "slice2java": error=2, No such file or directory


which means that "~/apps/OMERO.libs/bin/" is not on your PATH variable.

Hope that helps,
~Josh

Hi Josh:

I still seem to be having trouble getting the omero install itself. When I try the brew install approach I get the following (I think the MD5 checksum must have changed):

it looks like my formulas are out of sync with the latest scripts. Maybe I'll try this but please let me know if you have any tips. There are still some significant gaps in my knowledge of how this works.

Thanks for your help,

Hi Karl,

For omero43, you can update the Homebrew alternate formulas using:
Code: Select all
~/apps/OMERO.libs/bin/brew untap openmicroscopy/alt
~/apps/OMERO.libs/bin/brew tap openmicroscopy/alt

Once you enter the following commands, you should get something like
remote: Counting objects: 492, done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (257/257), done.
remote: Total 492 (delta 253), reused 404 (delta 207)
Receiving objects: 100% (492/492), 81.47 KiB, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (253/253), done.
Warning: Could not tap openmicroscopy/alt/ice over mxcl/master/ice
Warning: Could not tap openmicroscopy/alt/mcpp over mxcl/master/mcpp
Tapped 4 formula

Try installing omero43 using brew install again and let us know it you still get a mismatch.

For the python build.py error, it could be a dynamic library error. What is the value of your DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH?
Code: Select all
echo $DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH


Cheers,
S├ębastien

Hi,

I still can't seem to get omero to install from homebrew. Below (2nd append) is the output from the 'untap/tap' suggestion that was kindly provided. Apparently I still get an MD5 mismatch.

thanks for any insight you may have to how I can get around this.
