|2004-03-24||RH9||Intel||RH9||I think it went fine last time, but that's while back- time will tell on this version!!|
|2004-03-24||RH7.1||Intel||RH73||Previous versions have updated LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to a sas directory that contains versions of some shareable libraries (eg qt) that conflict with system versions. This means its not possible to some other programs in windows intiallised for sas unless you use a wrapper script.
For systems where the sas is intialised by default for all users it makes the wrapper script mandatory.|
|2004-03-24||RH9||Intel||RH9||The dependence on a 'correct' version of Perl is annoying because it prohibits upgrades of (or to new) operating systems with a newer version of perl - something that is sometimes required for new applications (such as printing) to run.|
|2004-03-24||SOL8||SunSparc||SOL2.8||I've had great success and understaning using your comments and instructions.|
|2004-03-24||RH9||Intel||RH9||It was extremely difficult to find documentation for the different options to the FLAG parameter in selectlib/evselect.
Please support Macintosh.|
|2004-03-25||SOL8||SunSparc||SOL2.8||All GUI tasks in SAS 5.4.1 on Solaris 8 gave the strange message
Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display "unix:1.0".
without any obvious adverse effect.
|2004-03-25||SOL8||SunSparc||SOL2.8||Some problems with SAS tasks requiring a specific version of perl.
Thank you for having solved them in the new release of SAS!|
|2004-03-26||TRU5.1||DEC||TRU64-5.0||Should be able to generate PSFs from the command line|
|2004-04-01||SU8.2||Intel||SUSE8||easier access to the source code would be an asset.|
|2004-04-02||RHEL3||Intel||DEB3.0||Previous version of SAS was partly disfunctional due
to dependence on outdated perl libraries...
|2004-04-02||RHEL3||Intel||DEB3.0||My main issue was the linkage of the previous version to outdated versions of perl.|
|2004-04-08||SU8.2||Intel||SUSE8||It would be nice to have the sources available for SAS 6.0 again, cause it's really difficult to get the binary dists to work on systems they were not compiled for at the moment.|
|2004-04-10||RH9||Intel||RH9||A nice "feature" would be a list of the software requirements and their versions for those of us that aren't willing to pay for redhat.
For example, "this package compiled with gcc version x.xx, kernel x.xxx, perl version xx.xx" and so on. I've had no problems running things in the past on non-redhat machines, but it's nice to make sure that you have everything you need. :)
|2004-04-21||SU7.3||Intel||RH8||It would be good if you could specify which software versions are essential for each version of the SAS - upgrading them all can take too long and if it really doesn't affect SAS performance, at least some upgrades can be avoided.
|2004-04-24||RH9||Intel||RH9||Having the previous version of SAX running correctly on RH8.0 and RH7.x has proven quite a difficult/tricky task, mainly because of dependence on specific versions of external programs and incomplete or not fully correct explanations on how to fix problems.|
|2004-05-20||RH9||Intel||RH9||I've already installed the binary packages. Rightnow, I am trying to compile it from source, to see if I can compile it with qt-3.3.|
|2004-06-05||RH9||Intel||RH9||Thank you for making SAS.|
|2004-06-19||RH7.1||Intel||VINE2.2||I could't do running "rgsproc".|
|2004-06-22||RH9||Intel||RH8||I have tried to download SAS once before (downloaded RH 7.1 version, tried to run on a computer running RH 8.0, could never get it to work). I am now trying to run the RH 9.0 version on a computer running RH 8.0. If that doesn't work, I will try running it under Fedora Core 2. I am not a linux expert by any stretch, but this software has proved more difficult to install than some other scientific packages I have used.
The whole business of downloading Grace seperately is confusing and could be streamlined. |
|2004-09-15||RH9||Intel||RH9||I am very much interested in testing the Mac OS X version of SAS so that I may install it on my laptop. I think support for Mac OS X is much more important than support for Tru64 unix, as I know of no people at my institution who still use Tru64.|
|2004-09-16||RH9||Intel||RH9||The grace/pdflib/netcdf/fftw rpms significantly eased the task of installing SAS compared to building grace from source when installing SAS 5.1|
|2004-11-05||RH9||Intel||DEB3.1||I'd love to see Debian supported. It's a very consistent platform, that only changes every 3 years or so.|
|2004-11-24||RH7.1||Intel||RH71||I've answer yesterday the same questions.|
