TideSDK installation error

Hello folks,

I installed TideSDK as explained on its site : TideSDK Documentation

Upon running, a dialog box appears with the User agreement. When I accept and click run, the dialog vanishes.

I ran the same from command line and got the following :


ish@inote:~/.tidesdk> ./TideSDK\ Developer 
/home/ish/.tidesdk/installer/installer: /usr/lib64/libcurl.so.4: no version information available (required by /home/ish/.tidesdk/installer/installer)

I can confirm you that libcurl.so.4 is present. I can run the same TideSDK installation on Mint.

I need to know what is missing with openSUSE. Currently using openSUSE 12.3 64bit and MATE 1.6.1.

Thanks for helping.

Regards,

Ish

in trying to figure out how to help you i tried to follow their
documentation and by so doing i downloaded the SDK and the Developer
and after extracting the zip into the required directory couldn’t
follow any documentation at all…i mean they didn’t even say what
to run or how to run it…

so, i’d guess the question of why it does not run with openSUSE might
be best answered by the maker…that is to say i can’t see where they
list the Linux distros their package is designed for…apparently
they must think it is fit for 500 distros!

see what they say the problem is…or, just use what works…

on the other hand maybe someone else can try to download and
install–i actually have an aversion to installing anything which
comes in a zip file with already marked as executables inside…far
too much like a trojan horse to me!

look, the download site is not even an https…no cert at all, no
idea who you are downloading from…could be the worlds most
destructive root kit via a man-in-the-middle-DNS-spoof…no thanks!!

no md5 hash to verify security integrity…no thanks!!

i have deleted it without running any of its executables and suggest
all who wish to keep their box secure do the same.

to me, the package looks perfect to run on already unsafe Windows.

Hello DenverD,

Thanks for replying.

Actually, I came across TideSDK while looking for one on which I could develop HTML5 apps for both desktop & mobile (Android). My search led to TideSDK. Their source is available at https://github.com/TideSDK/TideSDK. I’m not a professional coder but I know some HTML, SQL and PHP and a little bit of Perl scripting. So, I felt this tool could do the trick.

The packages on the website contains only the binary and some libraries. So, you can just extract and run it. I think once this tool will be used by more people, it’ll be packaged for different distros.

In the mean time there is a Code Challenge being organized in Mauritius. Some friends and I are participating to build an HTML5 app. Since this event will be viewed by many we thought why not building on top of openSUSE. We could push & promote openSUSE there.

I’ve ran the TideSDK application on Linux Mint 15 though, the only library that was missing was libjpeg62. Once installed it ran fine. I am now trying to figure out what’s missing in openSUSE so that I can run it properly.

I really appreciate that you took your time to analyze the security issues in TideSDK’s website and all though. Thanks.

Regards,

Ish

which is another thing i noticed but forgot to mention: most (all?)
Linux programs include information from the developer detailing
exactly what the supporting software requirements (aka dependencies)
are…

so i recommend you change your question from: “What is missing in
openSUSE?” to “What does TideSDK require?”

and (again) ask that question of the only folks on earth who can
answer it!!

i mean, how can anyone here tell you what you don’t have on your
machine via a default install which is required by TideSDK (and
probably easily loaded onto your machine from some standard openSUSE
software repository via YaST!)

learn what is required, and then ask here how/where to get it.

If I had instead asked “What does TideSDK require?”, again I would have got the answer “ask the one who built it”.

I intended to find a solution based on someone’s similar experience with TideSDK or any other SDK (application) that showed same symptoms, or else someone curious enough to test TideSDK on his end.

how can anyone here tell you what you don’t have on your
machine

If I had the answer to the above, this post would not be here either.

Anyway, I’ll continue testing and look for a fix. When I get it, I’ll post it for users in the future.

you are, of course, welcome to hang out here and see if another
openSUSE user with TideSDK experience comes through and sees your
question…i was just trying to help you find the answer faster (if
you knew what was required you could easily discover if you had it
installed)

my problem is the same as yours: not knowing what is required…

Hi
Just downloaded the x86_64 sdk, unpacked installed a couple of files
and created a softlink and it’s working…


cd /usr/lib64
ln -s libgnutls.so.28.11.3 libgnutls.so.26
ldconfig
zypper in libpng12-0 libjpeg62

Then from the unpacked directory ran;


./TideSDK\ Developer

and get;

you certainly got further than i did! (good on ya)

wondering: how did you learn those 2 files were needed?

Hi
It gave me a popup (and could see from the command line) the libraries
it was looking for… running ldd against the runtime file would also
probably show them missing…

thanks…and, forgot to ask: did the instructions provided by the
site direct that softlink? (i must have missed it)

Hi
No, that lib is not built for 12.3 stopped at 12.2, if the softlink
didn’t work then would probably looked at building it…

Great rotfl! !!!

Thank you loads Malcolm.

I was kinda hurrying so that the team chooses openSUSE over another distribution :shame: …

Well, regarding the pop-up I got only the ‘Apache License’ when I ran ‘TideSDK Developer’. As for running ldd on the latter, all the required shared objects were present on the system.
