Trouble Installing PreVABS on CentOS

  1. Kamron A Medina

    Hey All,

    I am keep getting the following error (see attached screenshot) when I try and run “” for installing PreVABS.

    CMake Deprecation Warning at CMakeLists.txt:1 (cmake_minimum_required):
      Compatibility with CMake < 2.8.12 will be removed from a future version of
      CMake. Update the VERSION argument <min> value or use a ...<max> suffix to tell
      CMake that the project does not need compatibility with older versions.

    CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:26 (find_library):
      Could not find GMSH using the following names: Gmsh

    -- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

    I have all the dependencies installed as well as gmsh. Any thoughts on what could be causing this?

      Hello Kamron,

      It seems that you are using prevabs 1.2. Can you try the most recent version (1.4.2)? It can be found at the download page.

        Really appreciate the help! I downloaded and extracted 1.4.2. I navigated to the /bin folder and tried to execute the prevabs command but am now getting a different error:

        $ ./prevabs
        ./prevabs: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

        Adding on to my comment:

        it looks like that object file exists in the directory, not sure what could be causing the issue!

      I have uploaded the updated package with a symbolic link "" pointing to "". Can you download the updated package and test it again? Thank you.
