Re: help a noob


Hi Geoffrey,

Did you try to scan a smaller file ?
I have just tested the basic Docker command you mentionned, and uploaded 326KB tgz archive, and the scan went fine.
I have exactly the same header as you have.

OK, so CentOS won't work for me (all I'm trying to do is evaluate fossology to see if it will work for my needs, and I
don't feel like compiling php from source)

So I installed the docker image. That should

It doesn't work either. When I upload my source (300GB zipped) nothing happens. It appears that it unzips it,
(maybe?) but then it never scans it.

I think the scheduler is busted. When I go to the Scheduler Administration and click on "Status" for the "Scheduler" and
hit "Submit it says

Status of the scheduler failed.Connection to the scheduler failed. Is the scheduler running?
socket_connect() failed.
Reason: () Connection refused

This is the docker image...shouldn't it

FWIW, the banner says:

Version: [unknown], Branch: [master], Commit: [#142313] 2018/06/07 09:45 UTC built @ 2018/06/07 10:07 UTC

Is there a known stable version I should use rather than just docker run -p 8081:80 fossology/fossology ?

Hi Geoffrey,

I am sorry for this experience, I think we do not have enough (any?) persons caring for the CentOS / yum based distros.
any help here is much appreciated.

I filed an issue for this:

Kind regards, Michael

installdeps script ( I was using centOS)

Then I realized my php is too old. I thought I'll try the docker image instead... upgrading my php will be a pain...

Prepare for more questions from me tho... my first attempt at the docker image revealed a crashing scheduler... I'll
work that tomorrow.

You are missing the ext-mbstring package which can maybe be installed
- `$ apt-get install php7.0-mbstring` or
- `$ yum php-mbstring`

Since you followed the instructions, you should already have all
dependencies installed after running `./utils/fo-installdeps`.
Which OS do you use? Maybe it is not fully supported by the script.
