I sorted out what had happenned. The owner and group for some directories in /usr/local/mapleta30/html/tmp which is where the gifs were to be written was wrong. This appears to have been associated with an earlier installation of mapleta3.0 as opposed to the later installation of mapleta3.01. Anyway the mapleta3.01 didn't have write privileges for the old subdirectories. Just doing a chown and chgrp fixed it. Greg Gamble and Curtin and I at UWA have had some separate issues associated with taking tomcat down and re-starting it. The tech support in the School of Maths is producing a better startup script, making appropriate use of Xvfb We get the impression that CEANET ask Waterloo / maplesoft our questions. We would communicate with others with mapleTA in East Australia if we knew any. We know that Uni of NSW bought mapleTA, but haven't used it owing to LDAP issues. We know people at UNSW. The other mapleTA sites we have heard of are Uni of Adelaide and, starting soon we guess, Uni of Melbourne. UWA and, to a lesser extent, Curtin have been forced to switch from AiM into mapleTA. Our longer-term hope is that we port the maple coded bits of AiM that are ahead of mapleTA into mapleTA. It is possible that we are being used as guinea pigs with mapleTA3.01. This is OK, but a direct line to the linux support people at maplesoft would be nice. We learn reasonably quickly, so wouldn't hassle people unnecessarily. And, we do hope to be useful.
