RE: where to find a BEAM 3.7 for linux
toggle
When I use the command line 'mapproj.sh *.xml', the BEAM 4.6.1 runs very slow. I want to use the earlier BEAM version 3.7 for the linux, but I could not find it in the web now. Who could tell me how to solve this? Thanks!

Perhaps someone else can comment the performance issue - Version 3.7 for Linux is available at http://www.brockmann-consult.de/beam/software/Web_Installers_3_7/InstData/Linux/NoVM/beam37installer.bin (29MB, without JRE) and http://www.brockmann-consult.de/beam/software/Web_Installers_3_7/InstData/Linux/VM/beam37installer.bin (78MB, with JRE).

Take care... it's really ancient... ;-)

Thanks a lot! I will be careful, hehe

Now I have another problem about the installing. When I install this BEAM3.7, I meet the following notice:

Preparing to install...
Extracting the JRE from the installer archive...

I am really a beginner for the linux, and what could I do to solve this problem? Thanks.

PS: I use 'whereis' to find that, I have these libraries in my linux system, as follows:
whereis libdl.so.2
libdl.so: /lib/libdl.so.2 /usr/lib/libdl.s
whereis libc.so.6
libc.so: /lib/libc.so.6 /usr/lib/libc.so
whereis librt.so.1
librt.so: /lib/librt.so.1 /usr/lib/librt.so

Sorry, I should have used different words...
as BEAM 3.7 is really an ancient version, "be careful" includes that there's usually only limited support... I've tried and actually get the same error as you stated.

You could try to install on another platform (e.g. windows), move the directories to your linux box and see if you get away with changing just a few settings. Being a Java application the code (other than the JRE) should be freely movable between operating systems. (I see the same problem

The best solution of course is to use the latest version (with source code) and see if you can hunt down the performance problems (or at least help to do so and file an issue in the bugtracker).
