I am running Linux RedHat and Java 1.7. I connect via ssh. I unzipped RapidMiner in /opt/rapidminer,
went to the folder /opt/rapidminer
and then excuted:


and received:

[[email protected] rapidminer]# ./scripts/rapidminer
RAPIDMINER_HOME is not set. Trying the directory '.'...
No maximum Java memory defined, using 512 Mb...
Starting RapidMiner from '.', using classes from './lib/rapidminer.jar'...

Usage: com.rapidminer.RapidMinerCommandLine [-f] PROCESS
  PROCESS  a repository location containing a process

This seems to want some sort of repository, which I don't think I have. Is there one provided? OR how do I create one and then name it for RapidMiner to use?

I also tried
and got:

not sure what I am looking at, but it doesn't match any docs or videos I can find. The video shows a GUI coming up and a nice clean prompt asking to create a repository- we're clearly miles from that here.

Can someone point me to docs that actually match what I am looking at, assuming this is even supported. Or next steps. Or something? Was there something in the setup or system requirements I missed????? Completely flummoxed as to how to proceed.

    Hi there,

    In the 'scripts' directory you can also try opening and executing 'rapidminerGui'. It works for me under Ubuntu and is referred to in 'install.txt'. Easy when you know how!

    Happy mining!

    OK, thanks. That didn't work either, but I noticed that $DISPLAY was not being set when I Putty'ed in. I tried reinstalling xauth

    yum install xauth

    and it ended up upgrading xauth, and then everythging seems to work- at least when I start RapidMinerGUI it is prompting me to set up the initial repository.

    Thanks again for your encouragement.

    I feel I owe you an apology, I didn't read your post in enough detail; mea maxima culpa , it was a long day! X marked a spot for me also last week, when a kernel update overwrote my NVIDIA drivers, leaving me window-less. What a treat!

    Anyways, sorry  ;D
