No mysql No cqrlog.err

I recently reloaded my PC (slack 14.1 and cqrlog 1.9.0) and now CQRLOG won't run

When it starts cqrlog gives the following error:
MySQL could not be started, please check if the MySQL server is installed properly
MySQL is running OK.

I ran cqrlog debug and got the following. I noticed cqrlog also couldn't find mysql.err so I created it but the result from the debug remained the same and mysql.err is empty

Hi !

Two questions:

Why you are running as root?
Why you try to run old and buggy version 1.9.0?

Please:
- create an ordinary user (with sudo privileges) and use that for daily operations.
- Install the latest, or at least 2.1.0, version of cqrlog
and then try again.

I just hadn't got round to creating another user. It may not be good practice but it still works.
Slackbuild is installing that version so I ran with it.

I will upgrade as advised.

No mysql No cqrlog.err

I installed cqrlog 2.2.0 from root using tar xvf as you have detailed elsewhere in the forum and it all went OK, no errors.

I tried to run CQRlog from the Application Launcher search but it never found the file.

I then went into /cqrlog-2.2.0/usr/bin/ and tried to run it from there. I found a setup file but again it just sat and did not open.

I also noticed there in no /.config/ directory under root.

I'm guessing the install is not complete after all.

Re: No mysql No cqrlog.err

As far as I know, MySQL won't run under the root account. Run cqrlog with --debug=1 and you'll see more details.

mysql/root

Hi!

Tested just that.
Runs very well when first su +passwd (or sudo su+ passwd) and then cqrlog from console with my Fedora 26.

Difference to basic installation is that my logs are set into mysql server (localhost:3306) and so I can access all logs also as root (or any other user).

But if I try to change this to basic install's default protected mode DB (deleting /root/.config/cqrlog) and allowing cqrlog to set up new log to localhost:64000 ("Save data to local machine" checked) this will not work , as you said!

Because of different database setup I have never noticed that before.

So we can say to M0DDR: Please create ordinary user and use all programs, including cqrlog, with that user account. You will get rid of mysterious things like tihis.
For fast root access add this new user to sudoers group and you do not need user root any more for anything.

Thanks Petr !

No mysql No cqrlog.err

I deleted the 64bit version and tried the i386.

Again no cqrlog in the Application Launcher but it was in //usr/bin/ and this time it started with the following errors:

Error during connection to database: TMySQL55Connection : Server connect failed

mysql not running But it is!!!

Again there is no /.config directory so no cqrlog.err or cqrlog --debug=1

m0ddr
No mysql No cqrlog.err

I saw a good many references to Mariadbclient so I installed it.

CQRLOG behaved exactly as my last post

No mysql, no cqrlog start icon and no /.config directory.

If you install from tar you

If you install from tar you should download it to /tmp
Then go to /tmp with:
cd /tmp
untar the file with:
tar vzxf cqrlog_2.2.0_amd64.tar.gz
then copy everything to right folders with:
cp -a /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr /
(this must be done as root)

Then you will have the binary file as /usr/bin/cqrlog and it should start from console with just typing:
cqrlog
Other stuff fill go under /usr/share/cqrlog and some other folders under /usr/share

If you now have, from previous installs, folder /cqrlog-2.2.0 just under the root (/) directory remove it with:
rm -rf /cqrlog-2.2.0

Then everything is in right place.

Check that all needed librariies are installed like the last lines at download page says:

The binaries should work in any distribution. Please don't forget to install MySQL server, MySQL client, Hamlib libraries and if LoTW support is desired, trustedqsl package and libssl-devel must be installed.

Tar install will not create items to start menu or icon to desktop. Those you have to make by your self.

I unpacked the tar file the tried to move it as directed

then copy everything to right folders with:
cp -a /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr /
(this must be done as root)

Result:

root@Spitfire:/tmp# cp -a /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr /
cp: cannot overwrite non-directory '/usr/share/man' with directory '/tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr/share/man'

oh1kh
No mysql No cqrlog.err

Ah!
You do not have /usr/share/man directory. Instead you have an ordinary file "man" under /usr/src (I wonder why? An from where it has come to?)

How ever "man" directory is not importatnt for program use.
You can first delete it from /tmp with
rm -rf /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr/share/man
and then try again to copy all with
cp -a /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/usr /

Most important is that binary will go to /usr/bin/cqrlog and directory /usr/share/cqrlog is populated.

You can see the whole structure with comand:
tree /tmp/cqrlog-2.2.0/

On the second line branch "usr" should get located under root (/) directrory to be as /usr.
So with command 'tree' you should see where each file should be if you omit the first 'cqrlog-2.2.0' and think that the 'usr' is placed to the disks root (/) directory.

Because tar file is generated so that it includes cqrlog-2.2.0 directory we can not extract it directly to root (/) that would be the easiest way. (and I think some older version tars have been that kind of)
We have first extract it under /tmp and then strip branch cqrlog-2.2.0 away with cp -a command.

install 2.2.0 from tar.gz

Hi!

I updated my knowledge a bit about all tar functions and whole job can be done with one line. Every day there is something new to learn.
First download cqrlog_2.2.0_amd64.tar.gz to directory /tmp
Then execute tar with parameters:

tar vxfz /tmp/cqrlog_2.2.0_amd64.tar.gz --strip-components=1 -C /

That is all and every file should go right away to correct folder. It even does not complain if there is a ordinary file named with same name as directtory from tar. It just overwrites file with same named directory (be warned). Tested this.

Then just start cqrlog from console with command
cqrlog
or if (for some unknown reason) /usr/bin is not part of your PATH use full name
/usr/bin/cqrlog

Make needed menu and desktop icons manually.

Back to square one.

The ter install seemed to go OK with no errors

When I ran cqrlog the little feather flashed for about 30 seconds then stopped.

root@Spitfire:/# cqrlog --debug=1
-bash: /usr/bin/cqrlog: cannot execute binary file

User 1000 comes from tar, I think.

Usually first ordinary user gets ID 1000. But if you are root you should be able to change that (or use sudo chown as oridinary user):
chown root.root /usr/bin/cqrlog

But on the other hand every user has execute rights, so that should be enough for running cqrlog even it is owned by 1000 that seems to be unused ID in your system.

I changed ownership but cqrlog still wont start.

No.

No.
It can't help as:
root@Spitfire:~# ls -l /usr/bin/cqrlog
-rwxr-xr-x 1 1000 1000 15665968 Dec 30 06:45 /usr/bin/cqrlog*
root@Spitfire:~#.
You see those 3 'x' there. They mean 1st,2nd,3rd owner,group and anyone can execute this file.
So the 3rd = anyone can execute was there already. You just fitted 1st and 2nd 'x' to fit root.root to execute (instead of 1000.1000).
Does not change anything as root was counted to anyone when ownership was 1000.1000

Problem is not there.
What is the output if you type this line in console window: ?

/usr/bin/cqrlog debug=1

There must be some kind of output.

Hi!

Could it be that you have i386 CPU and you are trying to use x86_64 CPU's binary?

Did you make last install with this?:
tar vxfz /tmp/cqrlog_2.2.0_amd64.tar.gz --strip-components=1 -C /

It points to 64bit tar. Please download i386 binary and try replace its name to that tar command line.

After that is sure, again check that execute is allowed for all:
chmod a+x /usr/bin/cqrlog

I can't figure out anything else that would prevent executing binary.

Read again this chain/reply #4 and #5 (specially the last chapter of #5).
