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.

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

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 => (0xffffe000) => /usr/lib/qt4/ (0xb7180000) => /usr/lib/qt4/ (0xb6f80000) => /usr/lib/qt4/ (0xb6f3c000) => /usr/lib/qt4/ (0xb669c000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb668c000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb6573000) => /usr/lib/qt4/ (0xb652e000)
... => /usr/lib/ (0xb5a7f000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5984000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb595a000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb5953000) => /lib/ (0xb594e000) => /usr/lib/ (0xb592d000)

if, instead of saying something like => /usr/lib/
it says => 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).
