May be we should make the RTIG.log file creation "optional"

RTIG executable is trying to create a log file in its working directory thus the error.

Even if you installed CERTI in /opt/certi
you *launch* rtig anywhere else by either

a) explicitely calling /opt/certi/bin/rtig

b) update your PATH in order to make
   rtig appear in the path

Note that for updating you path you may source
a script shipped with CERTI


depending if you use Bourne or C-Shell
this script will update the PATH and
LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the concerned CERTI installation.

Hi everyone,

I installed CERTI 3.3.3 on a laptop (32 bits processor with Ubuntu Karmic). I noticed that, whatever the directory I may choose for $HOME/CERTI, I always get a failure when I try lo launch rtig from $HOME/CERTI/bin.

As a result, if I install CERTI in the directory "/opt/certi", I will get the following error message:

damien@BOSS:/opt/certi/bin$ ls
billard  CertiUtilTests  hlaomtdif2cpp.py  rtia  rtig

damien@BOSS:/opt/certi/bin$ rtig
Could not open Audit file � RTIG.log �.
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'certi::RTIinternalError'

The only solution to circumvent this trouble consists in launching "rtig" from the directory "build_certi/RTIG", even if CERTI_HOST et PATH have been modidified accordingly.

damien@BOSS:~/certi/certi-3.3.3-Source/build_certi/RTIG$ rtig

Does any one have idea about it

Thanks a lot,
