Installation on CentOS 8


I tried once ago to install SalomeMeca 2019 on Centos 8
But I get:

[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ export PATH=/usr/bin:$PATH
[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ alias python=/usr/bin/python2.7
[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ unset PYTHONPATH
[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ export PYTHONHOME=/usr
[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ ./salome_meca-2019.0.1-2-LGPL.run

[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ python --version
Python 2.7.15
[kaengo@kraehe salome_meca]$ ./salome_meca-2019.0.1-2-LGPL.run

Enter the salome_meca install directory [default=/home/kaengo/salome_meca] :

I reinstalled python 2 and tried again before this run.

Does anyone know the solution?


I tried once ago the actual fedora 31 distro (in vmware).
Same failure ....

Re: Installation on CentOS 8

Dear code_aster experts,
I'm a happy Salome 9.3 / 9.4 user on Ubuntu and Fedora, now it's time to get familiar with code_aster.
In the last few weeks, I tried to install Salome Meca 2017-2019 on fresh installed Fedora 31 and CentOS 7.7/8.1 Linux distros. Unfortunately without success. Always the same known errors, as already reported by other users here.

I'm not the greatest Linux guru. But after some years of experience, I'm less or more familiar with the standard issues, debugging and troubleshooting.
Is it possible to get some more detailed info about the Linux distros and the Salome software has been developed and tested?
Distro / release number Linux, Salome, code aster / configuration / ~hardware ?

I'm feeling really motivated to run more checks and sharing my knowledge with the community.
Best regards,
