Compiling Successfully Reading People Tracker's Code
« on: August 19, 2005, 03:26:38 PM »
Dear Fellow Linux Friends,

  Lately i have been trying to help out a friend of my to compile a C++ project which is known  READING PEOPLE TRACKER:

http://www.cvg.cs.reading.ac.uk/projects/advisor/

Please let me know if u successfully compiled and run this code. The rpm packages and sources i used to compile this project:

1.   blas-3.0-29.i386.rpm
2.   lapack-3.0-29.i386.rpm
3.   libavc1394-0.4.1-8.i386.rpm
4.   libavc1394-devel-0.4.1-8.i386.rpm
5.   libdv-0.103-4.i386.rpm
6.   libdv-devel-0.103-4.i386.rpm
7.   libgfortran-4.0.0-8.i386.rpm
8.   ReadingPeopleTracker-1.27.tar.gz
9.   xerces-c_2_6_0-redhat_80-gcc_32.tar.gz
10. Ygl-4.1f.tar.gz

I have problem compiling the project. This is one challenging heck of app to install for me.

Kindly please share with me how u are able to successfully compile this code. Of course the requirement is, it must be in Fedora Core 4.

Kind Regards,
dragoncity99

1. The structure mentioned, you could get the configuration example from:
http://www.ks.informatik.uni-kiel.de/~vision/doc/Publications/nts/config-example.tar.gz
where in this tarball you will have "advisor", "models", and "config" directory.

2. Modify the "path" in all the configuration files to reflect your installation, put some the sequenced pictures, some of the additional pictures required as requested in the configuration files in the
    /root/advisor/CONFIG2/advisor/video/STIB/YZER/c02/TRACKING_1/ directory and you are done.

Sorry, i don't have a webserver, so right now if u need the config, just mail to me to request it: dragoncity99@hotmail.com

3. To run the program with all the configuration set-up.
Code: [Select]

richard@localhost# cd /root/advisor/bin;./ReadingPeopleTracker -c /root/advisor/CONFIG/config

Basically, i read a bit of the coding & their documentation to get the idea.

U must read their documentation. Their config files are quite straight foreword, they are plaintext like those JAVA property files. Nothing special. Don't get scared by it.

For videos, im can't remember sorry. U could check the code again. What i did for my friend are "Still JPEG images".

U can put anywhere these pictures. The criteria is that , u must make sure ur config files point to that right path of ur images. That's all.

I'll try to get the complete running copy from my friend again since she have those images and the configs available when i compiled for her. U could take a look there, do u have an email?

So sorry, since it's quite adhoc how-to for now.

thanks for replying me .
here is something i want to ask
1.  
Where is the documentation about configing the program?
I had looked for it in readme file in the source code and
Reading People Tracker Reference Manual, but I had not found it.
Could you plz tell me where to find them .

2.
I had download the configuration example,
there were three directories in the tar.gz file including "advisor"、
"config" and "models", but not "CONFIG2" and "STIB.YZER" directories
 as you listed in this page. Is that the directories I should add myself?

And I found in the directory \config-example\config\STIB.YZER the file TRACKING_1-PLTF02.C02, this is the configration file I should modify, I guess. Is that means I should modify image path 、type and dimension...  all the parameter in this configration file?  You said you have running copy, so i really want to have a look at it , here is my email: tangyi997@gmail.com , i want to see how to config it through an example.

I had just installed Linux only one month. I had compiled RPT for a long time , and also in fc4 as you did but had no result.  Fortunately you write this howto. And thank you for you help.

Okay, firstly i must apologize that i forgotten to mention that this  RPT was compiled successfully on Fedora Core 1.

I do have some problem with Fedora Core 4 as the dependent OpenMotif directory somehow were not available.

The manual i mentioned is the "pdf" file called "Reading_People_Tracker_ref_manual.pdf"

I remember i read more than 5 times to understand what they are trying to say. So u might wanna do so as well. Hahaha.

I read very very slowly and carefully.

Okay about the config files

"CONFIG2" and "STIB.YZER" does not exist at all. STIB.YZER is inside the "config-example.tar.gz" tarball.

Extract the example out and u know what i mean.

I put all the extracted "config-example.tar.gz" tarball directories into my own self-created "CONFIG2" directory under "advisor" directory.

Well, i will only be able to give it to u this weekend the earliest if that is possible. I need to go and meet my friend to that those complete binaries.
