It may be worth your while talking directly to next Limit on this one perhaps. If they give you a working solution, would you be good enough to drop by and post it for other users please?

As RealFlow linux is statically compiled, you should simply try to run it out of the box. Should work. Works here on ArchLinux (32bits though).

Here are some instructions using the demo as example.

- Download the realflow64-4.3.6.0121-.tar.gz file on Next Limit website (put it in your home folder).
- Open a terminal (or use any compression gui frontend) :

Code: Select all

tar xzf ~/realflow64-4.3.6.0121-.tar.gz

- Run it directly :

Code: Select all

cd ~/realflow && realflow

Should do the trick. If that don't work, please copy the console debug output here, I'll try to help you if I can get some time :)

hi guys

i send an email to NL but the TechDesk replied to look into the Maxwell Manual (??) and into the RF FAQ.
But I found nothing to work with

So I tried Toms method
But:
Sebastian@linux-ztep:~> /home/Sebastian/realflow/bin/realflow.bin && realflow
/home/Sebastian/realflow/bin/realflow.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


So what now?? I'm using openSuse 10.2 32Bits and I'm new to Linux systems

This command is wrong. The first part will execute Realflow, but the second one ('&&' = AND) will try to execute Realflow too, only if it finds its executable in your system path, which I'm sure it won't. So basically, you only need the first part.

/home/Sebastian/realflow/bin/realflow.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libri.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

From what I know, libri belongs to libpixie. But that's a bit strange Realflow needs it because pixie is an opensource Renderman renderer. Install the libpixie package, that should do the trick. I don't know Suse, but I guess you can download and install packages from Yast.

To get realflow working I had to edit the realflow execute file.

I scrolled down to the bottom, and added a # before the line about setenc kernel.

Then doubleclicking the realflow execute and running it worked fine.

Good luck!

Hey Gauvenator, your solution works very well! Thanks! Just to make this clear for everybody, the 'realflow execute' means the Realflow script used to launch the bin... For reference: I'm running Ubuntu 7.1 and the demo of Realflow...

After 1 year...her I am again.... with almost the same problem:

I downloaded the rf4.3.8 tar.gz-file . Unpacked it to /home/Sebastian/
Next Step is open a Terminal:
then

Code: Select all

cd /home/Sebastian/realflow/bin

then .

Code: Select all

/realflow.bin

this is what I get this time

Code: Select all

/realflow.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libcurvecore.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

when using just

Code: Select all

./realflow

(without .bin) there is a bash error.

I installed Pixie via the Package Installer , also the libstdc++ thing.

Also I changed the # at the end of the start script, the same error occurs.

Ok . I thought the libcurvecore.so need to be linked , but there is neither a libcurvecore in the /lib/ directory nor the /lib64/ directory or anywhere else.

BTW: I'm using Fedora 8 x64

Hope to see some light at the end of this tunnel soon

Have you tried just typing in 'realflow' without the quotes in the bin directory? Make sure the permissions on the file are set to execute and it should run just fine without the ./ to execute. Don't use the 'realflow.bin' because the 'realflow' is a shell script that launches the 'realflow.bin' which sets up the environment and a few other things. What does the error say from the shell? I can't remember since the last time I installed but I think RF requires a C shell or tcsh. Cheers!

hi guys, I had the same problem with runnnig the RF on Fedora 9, so I downloaded and installed the tcsh and edit the file (and added a # before the line about setenv_kernel bla bla bla.) then type in console ./realflow ... and voila :)

Good luck!
