I am trying to get an installation from the Vanilla LiveDVD (WW 2.4 on Ubuntu 10.04) working on a virtual machine. I believe it was working until I upgraded Ubuntu last week--which broke it big time. I've gone through the Installation manual for 2.4, the Upgrading WeBWorK manual and the Release Notes for 2.4 and have if running again, but there are a few problems I cannot figure out. I backed the webwork2 and pg folders back to the trunk version with SVN.
1) The problems will not display and the "map" at the top of the problem page is "odd". It is not displaying the text correctly. It looks like this when I select a problem to work:
|webwork > test1 > algebra_01_01_algebraicexpressions > 1|| Logged in as rcruz.
I think first line of text shown above used to have upper case letters???
2) It will generate a hardcopy of a set, but I get a message box with:
/tmp/70YC2nSR.pdf.part could not be saved, because the source file could not be read.
However, it generates the hardcopy. I can open it from the Hardcopy folder and the problems show up just fine in the PDF.
3) I tried to see if the problems would show up in the LibraryBrowser and they show up fine if you use the "From This Course" button. But, if I click the "Try it" option, the same thing happens as in 1) . If I try to see the problems from the "Set Definition Files" button I get the following error:
