Hello, 
 
I try to use the tuto for Sphinx 3 using the WIKI, 
 
http://sphinx.subwiki.com/sphinx/index.php/Hello_World_Decoder_QuickStart_Guide 
 
I am using Ubuntu. 
 
 
 
Following the instruction I have an error in the sep 8 RUN 
 
Do you know the problem and can you help me to solve it ?

The reason of your troubles is not missing feat.params (it's an optional file which is missing for hub4) but a missing mdef file as you can see while reading the log carefully:

 SYSTEM_ERROR: "mdef.c", line 684: fopen($SPHINX_ROOT/sphinx3/model/hmm/hub4_cd_continuous_8gau_1s_c_d_dd/mdef,r) failed 

; No such file or directory

You should just point correct file path in command args. Most probably you forgot to replace $SPHINX_ROOT by location of the hub4 model.

Again, replace $SPHINX_ROOT with the actual path in argument file.

Sorry to insist lol

 do I have to put SPHINX_ROOT=/usr/src/sphinx somwehere.

In the console If I type echo $SPHINX_ROOT I cqn see that the patch is added. But I understand that he doesn't find the good location

But can you explain me howto do this.

This is the sample of code . 

   if (!mdeffile)
        E_FATAL("No mdef-file\n");

    if (breport)
        E_INFO("Reading model definition: %s\n", mdeffile);

    m = (mdef_t *) ckd_calloc(1, sizeof(mdef_t));       /* freed in mdef_free */

    if ((fp = fopen(mdeffile, "r")) == NULL)
        E_FATAL_SYSTEM("fopen(%s,r) failed\n", mdeffile);
 

Thank you very much for your patience Cry

Open file "cfgfile" with the text editor. Replace $SPHINX_ROOT with /usr/local/sphinx or another path where model could be found. Sphinx doesn't expand environment variables in config file, there is no relation with the result you get by echo.

./sphinx3/include/s3_decode.h:    char* rawext;

royerfa@royerfa-laptop:/usr/src/sphinx$

So there is a Makefile wich normally will define the rawext but apparently It hasn't be done.

Is it the good direction ??

 

Thank a lot

Cheers

I don't see this. There is no even a sign of 'rawext' on the tutorial page. Thus it's hard to understand what are you doing.  :)
