Known issues in the 20160225 autoPROC snapshot release:


1. Incorrect dependency on STARANISO [fixed in 20160324 release]

The following dependency error when running:

% process -checkdeps
FAIL     for staraniso! You will not be able to run autoPROC ('process') correctly!

is incorrect.

This dependency check for STARANISO had sneaked into this snapshot release although the feature for running STARANISO directly from within autoPROC is not yet distributed and only present in our internal testing version. This erroneous check will be fixed in the next release. In the meantime: please ignore the failure message.

you should be able to fix this by changing $autoPROC_home/jiffies/aP_gnuplot (line 43) from

1. GPX2 missing [fixed in 20151214 release]

  • GPX2 for OS-X was unfortunately not included in the tarball. Workaround: point to the binary from an earlier snapshot/release by setting:
         % export BDG_TOOL_GPX=.../autoPROC/bin/darwin/gpx2 ;# for sh/bash
           - or -
         % setenv BDG_TOOL_GPX=../autoPROC/bin/darwin/gpx2  ;#for (t)csh
