  • KDB Insights Core install on linux – can’t find qce-X.Y.Z-install.sh on Nexus.

    Posted by krish240574 on May 18, 2023 at 12:00 am

    Hello,
    I was trying to install KDB Insights Core on Linux and was following the page at :
    https://code.kx.com/insights/1.5/core/install.html#binary-installation-linux
    However, I can’t find the qce-X.Y.Z-install.sh(qce-4.0.2-install) file on Nexus. How may I procure it? Has the download location changed?

    I could use the docker container, but was leaning more to using the qce command line so I could follow along the videos on the KX Academy.

    Please advise,

    Thanks,

    Krishna

    Yes this can be solved by ensuring gcloud is up to date and initialised:

     

    gcloud components update gcloud init

    The file is there:

    kx-insights-packages > kdbInsightsCore > 4.0.2

    Are you signed in with username and password?

    Nope, I’m not – how do I sign up? I can only see a sign in link.
    Thanks for the prompt response !

    Yup, I’ve received my license via email and have q installed. I received the link to download l64.zip in an email.
    When I click the Nexus link on the download instruction page at :

    https://code.kx.com/insights/1.5/core/install.html#license , I get a popup message saying :
    undefined (kx-insights-package) not found. Is this because I’m not signed in?

    How do I sign up for Nexus access?

    Thanks,

    Krishna

    I have a new error now:
    when I run $QHOME/l64/q, I get the following :

    KDB+ 4.0 Cloud Edition 2023.01.20 Copyright (C) 1993-2023 Kx Systems
    l64/ 2(24)core 5847MB root ubuntu 127.0.1.1 EXPIRE *****************************************************.com

    ‘type
    [2] (/root/q/q.k:261)

    What could be causing this? This q came from the l64.zip that I downloaded from the link I got in an email.

    Never mind, I think I got it running, there was a import from the gsutil distribute that was messing up things.
    Lucky find !
    Thank you for the kind advice.
