setup on linux failed


Recommended Posts

At the end of the installation (of PlasticSCM- on debian 6)

I got the following messages:

Error: Unable to start Plastic SCM service. Please, review server log file

(loader.log.txt on server installation dir) in order to get more information

about the error or email Codice Software at support@codicesoftware.com

Press [Enter] to continue :

info: Installation complete. Your Plastic SCM server is configured to use a

SQLite database backend. Please, do not use it in a production system. We

strongly recommend to switch to MySQL or Firebird for multi-user setups. We

chose SQLite since it is very easy to install for evaluation and it performs

great on single user and distributed scenarios. Take into account that the

repositories upgrade from Plastic SCM 3.0 to Plastic SCM 4.0 is not automatic.

Please, contact with support (support@codicesoftware.com) to do this.

and now when I try to configure the server again

by running

/opt/plasticscm4/server# clconfigureserver

I get

clconfigureserver: error while loading shared libraries: libgthread-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried looking for a loader.log.txt fiel but found no such file.

Is there an installation guide for v4.0 on linux ?

any help would be welcome.

Hi epeleg,

I have just tested the latest release in Debain 6 and everything seems to work fine.

Can you tell us more information about your system?

Is it a 64 distribution?

Can you send to us, if you have it, the ISO download link?

Is your Debian installation a server distribution or a Desktop one?

Can you check if you have the libgthread library on your /usr/lib path?

Seems that for some reason your Debian distribution doesn't have the libgthread library, you can get it from here:

I will try to provide as many answers as I can even though I am not a linux expert in any way (yet).

The server is a linux node using the infrastructure provided by www.linode.com.

The configuration profile (as it apears on linode ) is Debian 6 (Latest 3.0 (3.0.4-linode38))

As far as I know it is not 64 bit.

No ISO download link, it is an automatic process on linode.

Being providers of servers I guess the installation provided by linode is a server distribution.

As for the libgthread library I don't see any file/link by that name on /usr/lib.

What is this library for? I will try to see if I can add it to my machine.

I installed the package you recommended in the link above.

using the command :

apt-get install libglib2.0-0

(Just in case someone needs to do that and does not know how).

Now my /usr/lib forlder contains a file named libgthread-2.0.so.0.2400.2 and a link to this file named libgthread-2.0.so.0.


/opt/plasticscm4/server# clconfigureserver

does run.


PlasticSCM server has been correctly configured ...

so I continued and configured the server and the client.

but when I do

cm cc


cm checkconnection

I get

Error: Connection refused: localhost:8087

How can I tell if the server/demon is running at all ?
