Glad I could help :)

You, my friend Seanl, are a true Wizard, to whose ingenuity and wisdom I bow! Sed'ed and updated. Many, many, many thanks :-)

Ah, I didn't realize the same problem. I fixed it by changing lines 141-14 in /opt/singularityviewer/singularity to the following:

BINARY_TYPE="$(expr match "$(file -b bin/$VIEWER_BINARY)" '\(.*executable\)')"
if [ "${BINARY_TYPE}" == "ELF 64-bit LSB executable" ]; then

i.e. I put quotes around $(expr...) on line 141 and added a space between LSB and executable on line 142. Not sure if the quotes on line 141 are really necessary since I did that first, but it's good hygeine. Works fine now.

Yes, it's a known thing (see some comments below). You have to either downgrade file to 5.13 or use singularityviewer-alpha. I recommend the latter. :)

I get the following error when trying to run it on 64 bit Arch:

bin/singularity-do-not-run-directly: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

collada-dom looks like the closest thing, but it appears to be the wrong version, 2.4 versus what I assume is 1.4.

Okay, I couldn't resist the temptation :-)

Awesome :) Thank you LightDrake! I'm glad there are Archers in the Singularity team. In my opinion, Singularity and CoolVLViewer are the best viewers available. I will wait for the next stable release before updating, but the link for the alpha release with the issue fixed is , for whomever wants to update sooner.

The issues being experienced with file-5.14 should be fixed in this commit in our main repository.

GordonGR commented on 2013-04-23 18:08

Well, apparently I was wrong and the LD_PRELOAD workaround doesn't work after all. So I'm reverting the change and admitting defeat. Please stay at file-5.13 for the time being.

Updated to the new SSBA-capable version (yay! v1 lives!). Also added a workaround for the file bug, which means you should now be able to stop holding your "file" package.
