Radiance Installation and Running

Hi Axel again,

Please let me make my enquiry more clear because I'm getting a bit confused.

I don't mind to use UBUNTU, knoppix, learnix or other operation system to run Radiance. By the end, what I need exactly is running Radiance (with almost all its programs) for two things:

1. generate BSDF for CFS to be used with Window7.3 tool.
2. calculate daylight levels for a grid points inside the space with same CFS.

To be honest, I did a lot of readings on how to do that but can't try that because I can't manage to install full Radiance package (I have already installed Radiance for windows but can't run genBSDF program, as I know).

I hope you can help me to sort that out :slight_smile:

Regards
Ikrima

Well, that was quicker than expected. Just after sending this e-mail, Sarith wrote again and the problem seems to be resolved. He had an old version of rcollate that didn't work when stdin was redirected from a file, but the latest works in that mode with -t but not from a file under Windows. This was easy enough to fix, and the next NREL release should behave properly. Meanwhile, Windows folks may have to redirect the input when transposing ASCII files with rcollate.

A tempest in a teacup, really....

Let's take this discussion offline and post again when it's resolved. At this point, it isn't clear if the problem lies with the build, the command-line interpreter or Windows system it's running under, or the rcollate command itself.

If you have some idea and want to help us work this out, write to me and I'll loop you back in.

Something else that is totally bizarre is that if I type your entry on the command line, rcollate crashes with an MSVCR120.dll error, but if I paste Greg?s text into the command line it gives me the usage text ? and they appear to be completely identical commands. We are using the NREL compile of Radiance.

Hi Greg,

The command that you suggested returns the usage options for rcollate
in windows. (ie. Usage: rcollate [-h[io]???..)

Earlier, I had tried feeding the file to rcollate via stdin through using pipe ( | ) as well as the ?type a.txt? shell command in windows but didn?t get it work either way.

Thanks,

Hi Sarith,

This seems related to the broken handling of text versus binary files under Windows. Try reading the file from stdin, instead:

rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?t < a.txt > d.txt

If this works, let me know and I'll see if I can put in a fix.

Hi everyone,

I am trying to do a transpose with rcollate. My operating system is Windows. My file contains rgb triplets arranged in a (8760columns x 60rows) matrix. I either get a ?error loading file into memory? or an incorrect transpose.

I found that I got the same results with a simple ASCII file with tab separated values. My file contains:

1 2 3 4
5 6 7 8
9 10 11 12

The following commands return ?error loading file into memory?:

rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?t a.txt >d.txt

rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?ic 4 ?oc 3?t a.txt >d.txt

I found that the ?-t? flag was responsible for the error, so I tried explicitly stating the values for columns and rows as:

rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?ic 4 ?ir 3 ?oc 3 ?ir 4 a.txt>d.txt

This gave me.
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
10 11 12

Am I missing something?

Thanks,
Sarith

Hi Ikrima,

I'm afraid LEARNIX is no longer maintained. You can still download the ISO image from here: http://www.jaloxa.eu/mirrors/learnix/index.shtml
but be aware that the latest release is from 2011.

Chances are that if you run it on hardware later than 2011, you will get problems, which are most likely to show up with weird display issues, or networking hardware not working.

To add insult to injury, the copy of Radiance that comes with this old LEARNIX CD-ROM is from, well... 2011.

You are much better off trying out a bootable UBUNTU CD-ROM or DVD. If you read the 'Running LEARNIX' PDF, available under 'Documentation', you'll find a number of different ways of running LINUX alongside or within Windows.

Installing Radiance from the standard Debian or Ubuntu repositories is fairly straight-forward.

Hope you will succeed with you endeavour.

Best

Axel

Hi Sarith,

I just tried both calls (with and w/o redirecting from stdin) with the
latest Windows binaries from
NREL(https://github.com/NREL/Radiance/releases)
and both work fine at my side...

rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?t a.txt > d.txt
rcollate ?h ?fa1 ?t < a.txt > d.txt

Which version of rcollate are you using?

David

Hi Ikrima,

If you need to run Radiance on a non-Windows platform, you can
essentially go MacOS or LINUIX (e.g. Ubuntu).

It's probably a good idea to rely in NREL's binaries:


unless, that is, you want to compile from source. But this is rather
more difficult.

Your choice of MacOS vs LINUX will not only depend on the hardware
that you have available, but also on the support you can get from your
local IT support..

Have a look at the Running LEARNIX pdf on this page:
http://www.jaloxa.eu/mirrors/learnix/docs.shtml to see whether one of
the available options might suit you. The document is fairly old, and
I never found the time to actually finish it. I think that installing
Ubuntu into a VirtualBox virtual machine is quite a good solution.
This is how I used to run all Radiance jobs at my previous place of
work. The big advantage is that you can Windows and LINUX at the same
time, but you need lots of RAM for this (I recommend at least 8GB).

Hope this gets you started.

Best

Axel

Ikrima,

I have used genBSDF in Windows... what you have to do is the following:

   1. Install Radiance (add it to path... that is a matter of checking the
   option)
   2. Install a perl interpreter... I used THIS <http://strawberryperl.com/>
   3. Then, in order to use genBSDF (at least for me), you have to write
   the whole directory... What I usually do is just copy and paste the program
   in the folder where you are going to work in.
   4. run 'perl genBSDF.pl ....'

Anyone knows why the perl scripts are not recognized as part of the PATH?

Hope it helps!

Bye

Hi Ikrima,

I'm afraid LEARNIX is no longer maintained. You can still download the
ISO image from here: http://www.jaloxa.eu/mirrors/learnix/index.shtml
but be aware that the latest release is from 2011.

Chances are that if you run it on hardware later than 2011, you will get
problems, which are most likely to show up with weird display issues, or
networking hardware not working.

To add insult to injury, the copy of Radiance that comes with this old
LEARNIX CD-ROM is from, well... 2011.

You are much better off trying out a bootable UBUNTU CD-ROM or DVD. If
you read the 'Running LEARNIX' PDF, available under 'Documentation', you'll
find a number of different ways of running LINUX alongside or within
Windows.

Installing Radiance from the standard Debian or Ubuntu repositories is
fairly straight-forward.

Hope you will succeed with you endeavour.

Best

Axel

Anyone knows why the perl scripts are not recognized as part of the PATH?

Perhaps because your Perl installer does not register the *.pl extension?
Check the PATHEXT environment variable in a cmd window:

echo %PATHEXT%
