I use mint cinnamon.
when I run the bookmap_runscriptsh data from console it starts but at any time it stopped without installing.
I start the data with a dpoublle click not with orders in the console .
Thr screen is frozen. I installed mint now for 3 times. Any Idea ?
Presumably, there's not enough entropy on your machine to generate random values.
Answered in private messages how to fix this.
Hey, Apparently I have the same problem. I managed to install the first time through the terminal, but I thought it would generate an application to run the Bookmap, however to access it, I have to run the .sh file and do all the introduction again. If possible, I would like you to help me solve the problem. Thx
Hey! What .sh file do, is run Bookmap app. There's no standard installation process on Linux. You just need to download archive, unzip it and run .sh file. That's all. You need to run .sh file each time you want to run Bookmap.
About the problem when Bookmap freezes at startup:
One of the possible reasons why Bookmap hangs on startup is due to the empty entropy pool on your computer as Svyatoslav said above.
Below it's the instruction on how to install haveged
entropy daemon to solve Bookmap freezes at startup
If you run cat /dev/random
in terminal, you'll probably see that there's not much data. So when you use /dev/random
and the entropy pool is empty it will block until it reads enough noise from drivers (mouse/keyboard/CPU etc.) to generate value, it explains why Bookmap freezes.
To solve this problem you could install entropy daemon haveged.
You can remove it whenever you want.
To install it you need to run 2 commands in your console:
sudo apt-get install haveged
sudo update-rc.d haveged defaults
(I took the above commands from here https://www.techrepublic.com/article/ho ... -on-linux/
, but I used them previously they should work)
After that if you run cat /dev/random
command again, you'll find that there's a lot of random bytes are generated by daemon. (may need a reboot)
I believe it should fix your problem.
