    Hello, I’m new to BP and encountered a problem when compiling the models.

    The BP version is the latest 4.2.0 for Linux.,OS is Ubuntu 12.04 LTD, and the project is the demo MicrowaveOven.

    When i use ‘build project’ to generate the c codes, following error occurred.

    xtumlmc_build -home /home/cley/MentorGraphics/BridgePoint-420/eclipse_extensions/BridgePoint/eclipse/plugins/com.mentor.nucleus.bp.mc.c.binary_4.2.0/ -l3b -e -d code_generation -O ../../src/

    Does anyone know this problem? Many thanks.


    Code translation & compilation is working OK for me on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Perhaps this is a configuration issue.

    Make sure you’ve ran:
    $ sudo apt-get install libstdc++5
    $ sudo apt-get install g++

    Also, open the directory where mcmc lives and run ls -al. Let us know if anything differs from mine:

    Hello, Thanks for the reply.
    I already installed the libstdc++5 and g++. And below is the list of my directory. I can’t see any difference.

    I also notice that the xtumlmc_build is with dos ending format and tried to convert it to unix format. The translation error still exists.
    Any idea?


    – Open the folder ~/mgc/install.ixl/LOGS, ls -al to look at the dates, open the file that corresponds to the time when you installed BridgePoint 4.2.0. Then go down to the “Starting post-install” section and see if there are any errors reported.

    – Create a new xtUML project with some simple internals: add a package with a component inside. Add a package inside the component, and a class inside the inner package. Add an operation with simply OAL that just increments a transient variable. Build the new project. Does it experience the same problem?


    There is no error in the post-install section of log file.

    I tried creating a simple xtUML project as you described. There is still the problem.

    It seems the problem comes from the executable mcmc.

    After checking again, now I probably know where the problem is, but haven’t verified my thought yet.
    From my previous post,
    [code title=””]mcmc: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, not stripped [/code]
    The mcmc is a 64-bit executable. But my OS is a 32-bit Ubuntu (Sorry for forgetting to state this in my inital post). That may be the syntax error came from.

    I download the installation package from BridgePoint for Liunx. There is no any clue of that it is for 32 or 64-bit system. :(

    When I tried to install the bp4.2 in a 64-bit Ubuntu, I suddenly found the installer BridgPoint_v4.2.0.ixl itself is a ELF 32-bit LSB executable. So it should be targeted for 32-bit system.

    But why is the file eclipse_extensions/BridgePoint/eclipse/plugins/com.mentor.nucleus.bp.mc.c.binary_4.2.0//mc3020/bin/mcmc a 64-bit executable? Right now I’m confused.

    Does anyone know the root cause of my failure?


    The BridgePoint installers and the eclipse they include have been historically distributed as 32 bit applications in an attempt to provide the widest capability of usage. It appears that the mcmc was built without specifing the 32 bit flag to gcc.

    However, the vast majority of users run 64 bit systems, so they never saw an error. It appears that you are the first to try to run on a 32 bit linux OS. At least, you are the first to report the problem.

    Are you able to run a build successfully on your 64 bit Ubuntu? Do you intend to stick with it or do you want to go back to 32 bit Ubuntu?


    Dear cley95,
    I will plan to compile mcmc as a 32-bit executable and post a link to it. It may be a day or two before I can do this.
    Thank you for the feedback.
    Note, you can raise issues in the BridgePoint issue tracker. You can find a link to the issue tracker on the developer page (https://xtuml.org/participate/developers/). [Note, to raise an issue requires you create an ID on the issue tracking system.]


    Thank you very much.
    I would still prefer to use my original 32 bit OS. So I’m glad to hear that a 32-bit mcmc would be provided. Looking forward the update.
    Best regards.


    The updated MC is available… including 32-bit mcmc.
