#1096 closed enhancement (fixed)

add ipython and ipython-notebook packages to the build

Reported by: darkblueb Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: normal Milestone: OSGeoLive7.0
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: ipython
Cc: epifanio


the "mad genius" epifanio does fun things with ipython-notebook.. it makes a graphical environment and he uses it to plot science data and drive OSSIM. It is about 26M install and when it runs it takes port 8888. The spreadsheet says that nothing else uses 8888.

Hamish is concerned about using common ports numbers, but we allow 8000 and 8080 already!

it is late to add this to 6.5. moving this to 7.0

In a generic sense you should be able to configure any particular program to use a particular port; it shouldn't be an issue to change that at will. The problem with using common-looking port numbers is that everyone gets the same idea from the same set of 10-15 and with 40 projects we get conflicts (again). The solution is for everyone to avoid them- then if one falls through the cracks unnoticed we are much less likely to have a conflict.

The system-wide tomcat6 is a special case, it can use 8080. :)

Anything else has not been explicitly "allowed", it just hasn't gotten its nasty-gram asking to use something else yet.

(mapnik's tilelite looks like it's running on port 8012, not 8000 by the way)

for OSSIM the best alternative I could think up was the numberfied version of the name ("M" doesn't translate very well though), 05514 -> 5514. /etc/services shows nothing standard using that.

Is there a nice & concise highly-geo example for ipython? Or would it be similar to the R and (now shelved) Octave framework quickstarts which could perhaps use a GWR or similar geo-task added?


comment:3 by epifanio, 11 years ago

A simple "geo example" of what can be done is available here [1] it can run on any port .. with a simple entry in the command line "--port=xxxx"

For a well done quickstart to include the notebook in the osgeolive doc, i agree we can wait the 7.0

... but at least having it installed by apt-get in the 6.5 will be really good (is 26mb and it's a standard ubuntu pkg, all the sw on the live that use python will have beneft from this installation)

for the archives, there were a couple of issues which needed to be dealt with to install ipython's custom profile correctly.

  • the ipython create profile command did not like being run with "sudo -u user", something inside it knew it was a lie and it didn't work. So we had to run it as root then migrate the files to /etc/skel/ and /home/user/ by hand.
  • in the chroot root's home dir was /roots/ not /root/
  • if ~/.config/ did not exist, it installed to ~/.ipython. If ~/.config/ did exist it installed to ~/.config/ipython/

Even if super useful, I would had preferred it if new optional software was not added after the feature freeze and instead kept for next time, especially because our disc space is so tight (50mb may make a really big difference at this point as to if we can have persistent 4GB usb sticks or not). It could be a choice between ipython and samba on the disc now, and I don't know the answer to that situation.

cheers, Hamish

few consideration :

Testing the live with the "basic" hardware requirements (1Gb ram, 1 CPU) on a VM

  • working with the Cape Code landsat data is taking too long to process this data (the dataset uncompressed is 60mb per band, 3 bands, plus an srtm)

to fix the space poblems i suggest we remove this dataset form the live and use the "now fixed" north carolina landsat instead.

comment:6 by hamish, 11 years ago

it's too late for changes now, so they'll stay, except if we have a space emergency.

I'm working on fixing those NC geotiffs upstream, which hopefully removes the reason to keep the cape cod ones on the disc, except for them being quite nice of course. :)


ps- maybe some new LANDSAT8 data next time! (still trying to track down the wavelength of the new thermal band..)

comment:7 by hamish, 11 years ago


the install_ossim script failed on what was hopefully to be the last of our test builds due to the last minute addition of:

  pip install oct2py

this was the error and the script exited before it could install the main ossim files:

  ./ 48: ./ pip: not found
  ERROR: Package install failed! Aborting.

note we used to have octave on the disc but had to disable it because there wasn't enough space, so oct2py wouldn't be much use anyway.

I've commented out the offending line in r9986.

there is an official backport of ipython from raring - installing it looks like this:

Cool, this was included in 7.0beta1. Should we close the ticket now?

comment:10 by hamish, 11 years ago

before closing ticket please check in the build logs that install_ossim's apt-get install ipython-notebook doesn't conflict/reinstall anything.

comment:11 by kalxas, 11 years ago

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

I am closing this ticket since the installation script is now committed and there is a ticket for installation problem #1183
