Thread: Trouble Installing Avogadro?

  1. #1

    Default Trouble Installing Avogadro?

    I'm brand new to openSUSE - I went into the software installation program and installed Avogadro, a computational chemistry program. The launcher appears in my main menu, but when I try to run it nothing happens. If I try to run it through the terminal, I get the error:


    The _C_API object in the sip python module is invalid.
    Could not initialize SIP API !
    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'boost:ython::error_already_set'
    Aborted


    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I have Avogadro 1.0.3-65.15 from KDE Stable repo on openSUSE 11.4 and it works without problems.

    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Release:/46/openSUSE_11.4/
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/Extra/KDE_Release_46_openSUSE_11.4/

    I just uninstalled Avogadro and I'm going to try to install that version as you suggested. Is that only for 32-bit? I'm currently running 64bit, so I think the version is lower than that I actually had the highest version.

    So I ended up getting it to install properly by compiling wxWidgets and then installing the .rpm file from the Avogadro website. It works now, but whenever I add a hydrogen, the program crashes with the error:

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
    what(): std::bad_alloc
    Aborted

    Anybody know what that might mean?
