Hello,


I believe I have correctly installed SAC on ubuntu and I have followed instructions from the README file and from this help forum for setting up the environment variables. However, when I try to run SAC I am not getting the SAC> prompt I expect. Instead I get the message "Total: x over 8 days", where x is some number that keeps increasing. How can I get SAC up and running correctly?


Thank you,

Dawson

    Dawson,

    Looks like you are running a different sac (https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/sac/1.9b5-3), not what you wanted.

    The top of the README states:
    This is Sac, which stands for System ACcounting or maybe Steve's AC... =)

    Try
    % which sac
    /usr/local/sac/bin/sac
    %

    You may need to either remove the unwanted "sac" or place the sac directory earlier in your PATH environment variable.
