You're probably getting the 'Invalid URL' message because you've not run
grid-proxy-init (at least successfully). According to bug #105
http://bugzilla.mcs.anl.gov/AccessGrid/show_bug.cgi?id=105, ANL ('lefvert' -
it would be nice to know a first name!) have since put in a better error

As to the grid-proxy-init segmentation fault, are you trying to run it as
root? If so, maybe your problem is here - that's what happened to me. If
not, try running 'grid-proxy-init -debug' and sending that output to

At least, these are the problems I got at a similar stage...!

Now, who's going to answer my question
.html)? Or I'll be forced to put it in Bugzilla...! (Actually, it occurs to
me that perhaps that *is* the best place for these things. ANL boys/girls -
is this how you want Bugzilla to be used, or do you want it reserved for
stuff we *know* is bugs, rather than user incompetence. Perhaps there should
be a new 'Severity' in bugzilla, if you've got control over this, for

Not starting datastore for venue: None does not exist
Service running at: https://exp.vislab.usyd.edu.au:8000/VenueServer

      VenueManagement.py   brings up gui, into which I enter the service
(https://exp.vislab.usyd.edu.au:8000/VenueServer) which VenueServer.py
started. However when I press the Go button, it pops up an "Invalid URL"
notifier. Also when I press that Go button, the following output appears
in the shell from which I started VenueManagement.py:
[root at exp root]# VenueManagement.py

Any pointers on what to do next please?
