I tried installing the new VIPM2017 for Linux in a clean Fedora 27 virtual machine just to give it a try but I can't get it to do anything. I followed the two basic steps: 1) install LVRTE 2015SP1 which installs without any problems or errors 2) copy JKI folder to /usr/local as described in the instruction.txt When launching vipm I just get the blunt error: No such file or directory as shown below sudo ./vipm sudo: unable to execute ./vipm: No such file or directory What could be the problem and how could it be resolved?
From the VIPM 2017 release notes: The only solution to this is to upgrade to VIPM 2017 if you want to install any packages built in that version. The problem here is that VIPM 2017 does not exist for Mac or Linux. In fact, version 2014 is the latest available download for those platforms. This means that any new package built with Windows cannot be installed on any non-Windows systems, effectively eliminating VIPM support for Mac and Linux. If you use VIPM on Mac or Linux, you may want to hold off on upgrading to LabVIEW 2017 until this gets resolved.
It looks like VIPM 2017 is included with LabVIEW 2017, but it is not yet available for download on https://vipm.jki.net/download. This would normally be fine, except I noticed in the release notes that packages built with VIPM 2017 cannot be installed with older versions. This is a potential problem because anybody who has installed LabVIEW 2017 cannot currently distribute their newly built packages to people who are still using older versions of LabVIEW, since they have no way of getting their hands on VIPM 2017. Also, can anyone confirm that there will be Mac and Linux versions of VIPM 2017? If not, that will be a big problem for those of us who build packages on Windows then need to install them on other OSs.
