Startup Failure for either the MAP or Menus

Menus

Failure of the menus to appear on a development machine (one with source code installed) is typically a result of a bad system build. If the menus do not appear on a machine with a binary installation there's no likely reason, so please call us. To verify that the build is bad on a development machine start the JFORCES interface in the following way (please don't use any shortcuts):

  1. open a terminal window

  2. Type "start <carriage return>"

Assuming the menus don't appear, you should get an error like:

/home/paul/bin/linux/wn: Command not found.

Alternately, you might get an error about permissions. If so, just delete the existing application and procede with the debugging. To delete the application type "rm $BIN_DIR/wn".

Next check why there's a bad build. Type:

cdwn; make

And look for errors. If none appear then try running. Is some appear, please fix.

Maps

Failure of the maps to appear on a development machine (one with source code installed) is typically a result of a bad system build. If the menus do not appear on a machine with a binary installation there's no likely reason, so please call us. To verify that the build is bad on a development machine start the JFORCES interface in the following way (please don't use any shortcuts):

  1. open a terminal window

  2. Type "forcesMap <carriage return>"

Assuming the maps don't appear, you should get an error like:

/home/paul/bin/linux/forcesMap: Command not found.

Alternately, you might get an error about permissions. If so, just delete the existing application and procede with the debugging. To delete the application type "rm $BIN_DIR/forcesMap".

Next check why there's a bad build. Type:

maps; make

And look for errors. If none appear then try running. Is some appear, please fix.
