Jenkins2: (Jenkins3 actually)

The full install script now seems to be working.

Found a source of nVivo problems

Sitting with K to debug an out-of-memory error with nVivo, I noticed that instead of closing nVivo to force it to write its file to disk, she was closing the VM. That would have the opposite effect: the file would not be written to the disk until the VM was restarted and nVivo, at some point, closed. That's a bit of a fragile situation, and we might want to look at a better approach to projects which depend on an app which doesn't actually save when it says it's saving.

Latest builds: nearly working

Found some stuff had not got installed due to a couple of typos, and other things which used to be installed automatically as dependencies in the TEI Debian package now have to be explicitly installed. Updated the script. Finally got a successful job to run in Jenkins.

One remaining problem is kindlegen, which is proprietary and requires you to agree to terms before you can download it, so can't be installed from the command line. Still figuring out what to do about that.

Maintenance

This blog is the location for all work involving software and hardware maintenance, updates, installs, etc., both routine and urgent, in the server room, the labs and the R&D rooms.
