[Monetdb-developers] problems with starting the monetDB4xquery server

Mtekel thx at trolej.sk

Hello, I have carefully read the link you have sent me. Too bad comments are
closed. I have now uninstalled my 20090424 version and installed the newest
20090530. However I still have problems running the server.

The 2009 4 24 version wouldn't start even after loading all the modules by
hand from the Mserver interactive commandline - nor the client or browser
would connect. They would just hang, connecting forever.

Now this works for the 05 30 version, but I can't use the web interface
(which now works) for adding the files - I get a bug (I'm not sure If I am
allowed to send attachements, so I'll include them in the next mail).

Adding from commandline, mclient --language=xquery -I %1 -C WOcollection <
%1 , where %1 is filename, works, but the collection name is %1 WOcollection
(e.g. three different files end up in different collections instead of one).

What is more interresting, if I try to run pf:add-doc("DATA_wo3.xml",
"DATA_wo3.xml", "WOcollection", 1) from the client's interactive
commandline, I get this error (no matter where the file really is):

MAPI  = monetdb at localhost:50000
QUERY = pf:add-doc("DATA_wo3.xml", "DATA_wo3.xml", "WOcollection", 1)
ERROR = !ERROR: interpret: no matching MIL operator to 'ws_create(int)'.

I have run procmon and created trace as described in the link, the file is
attached (to the second mail).

I hope this issue can be solved somehow,

Best regards,
