I am not sure if this question should be asked here, since I am on an OS X, but since I am using
bash, and I am asking about the meaning and the purposes of some files.
I am trying to understand why a certain program (
Designer.app), that comes with the official
Qt distribution (version 5.5) that I had installed a while ago, keeps crashing. At the following link you can find more information about this problem if you are interested:
Apparently, I think, the problem is related to the fact that a dynamic library (
libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib) is missing , but when I use the following command to locate the library
locate libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib, I have a strange output:
/Users/cell/anaconda/lib/libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib /Users/cell/anaconda/pkgs/qt-4.8.6-0/lib/libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib /Users/cell/anaconda/pkgs/qt-4.8.6-2/lib/libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib /Users/cell/anaconda/pkgs/qt-4.8.6-3/lib/libQtDesignerComponents.4.dylib
This is strange because I have no more the directory
What could be causing this strange output, and how can I solve this problem? I thought this could be due to some symbolic links...
My main question is anyway the following. In the meantime, I have found some files (exactly 6 files) on my home directory whose purposes are unknown for me. The filenames are prefixed with
AT.postflight., and then the suffixes are numbers. The first one for example called
AT.postflight.1174 contains the following contents:
Has /Library/Tcl/teapot = 0 HOME______ = /Users/cell USER______ = cell pkgdir____ = /Volumes/ActiveTcl-8.6/ActiveTcl-8.6.pkg installdir = / repository = /Library/Tcl/teapot shell_____ = /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.6 Having a seed repository. No existing repository, copying the seed to the repository-to-be at /Library/Tcl/teapot /usr/local/bin/teacup link make /Library/Tcl/teapot /usr/local/bin/tclsh8.6 Ok /usr/local/bin/teacup default /Library/Tcl/teapot /Library/Tcl/teapot Forcing ownership of /Users/cell/Library/Application Support/ActiveState to cell ___done
This seems to be related to Tcl packages... The other files seem to contain similar contents...
What are the purposes of these files? Can I safely delete them?
