|GPL release of Trex||Dave Winer||10/11/13 10:06 AM|
Not sure what if anything people are going to be able to do with this...
But I wanted to be sure you all were aware of it.
It's quite possible that a lightly-loaded Trex server could operate for an indefinite period.
I did some investigation into the problems, and it seems it was that there were a lot more named outlines in the last month. It's the kind of problem you love to have in normal situations, where you're prepared to add more servers. But we were not. ;-(

These are the steps I took to build Trex.
Setup new 1GB VPS with Ubuntu 13.04 x64
Point a domain name at it as well as a wildcard subdomain.
In my testing I used the domain "compoundhappiness.com"
Login as root
apt-get install vim zip build-essential automake autoconf git-core subversion libssl-dev libtool
git clone email@example.com:scripting/trex.git
git submodule init
git submodule update
Originally tried installing on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64 however got the error:
configure.ac:4: error: Autoconf version 2.69 or higher is required

Thanks for this Andrew.
I tried on an older version of Ubuntu and saw
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
after typing make build from /var/trex/build
I launched another box with 13.04 and got the same thing.
I didn't notice any other problems with anything along the way and the only thing I did differently was pull my fork from Github.

You don't need to make build. Running ./build.sh builds it. Just make install
|Re: [smallpicture-web] GPL release of Trex||Bill Soistmann||10/12/13 10:43 AM|
that was a typo
I DID type make install ( as you can probably tell from the error I get )
BTW, I noticed after submitting my question that there is a smallpicture-trex list. Should I just launch an instance from that AMI and start there?
|Re: [smallpicture-web] GPL release of Trex||Andrew Shell||10/12/13 11:02 AM|
Not sure about the AMI. I have never tried it before.
I don't have a solution for your issue with make install. I'm on my phone so sorry about missing the typo.
When I get home later today I'll try going through the instructions again. Maybe I missed a step.
|Re: [smallpicture-web] GPL release of Trex||Bill Soistmann||10/12/13 11:08 AM|
not like I haven't done this kind of thing before, but I thought I'd just check to see if there is a missing step
i am going to launch that AMI and see if that gets me any further

My C++ fu is pretty limited but this is what I can discern from the source code

From my digging into it the only thing LevelDB is used for is caching.
