I am using the pre-compiled binary bundle.
I am able to run the GUI, and some actions like displaying images after import.
When I try to run a movie align action, the job control starts up and I see this in my terminal:
Running... JOB CONTROL: Trying to connect to XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:3000 (timeout = 4 sec) ... JOB CONTROL: Succeeded - Connection established! We read 9196 bytes Connection Timer Fired
It appears to then start 3 unblur processes (I set my process number to 4, so maybe the job controller is included in that count?).
No processes are ever shown connected in the UI (0/4), and eventualy everything stops. If I try running the job controller by hand, and the unblur processes by hand, they output nothing and their exit code is 255.
I am running this on an Ubuntu 14.04 server and displaying back to XQuartz on my laptop. Eventually I would like to be able to use slurm to run the jobs, but I'm just trying locally with default configuration (except number of processes).
Note about installing:
I initially tried with the source code bundle, as we use EasyBuild here. There was an existing EasyBuild easyconfig for cisTEM, and it compiles with no errors. It appears to be missing at least 'display' and perhaps other important pieces. I also notice a lot of forum posts that are solved by using the pre-compiled binary bundle. Perhaps the source code bundle should be noted as not intended for use?
The pre-compiled binary bundle appears to have a dependency on wxWidgets. I didn't see this stated anywhere. Usually when I use a pre-compiled binary, it has been statically linked so it has no system dependencies.
