  • Saturday - Comment on Damir Ibrahimovic notes about not being able to see the command. Suggested to him to make a image file.
  • Sunday - N/A
  • Monday - I did a search on the web for the list of install files Sphinx installs and nothing came up. Now I will go to the Unix system and find files and look up the types of files to see in they are part of Sphinx.
Plan

Plan is to figure out a professional way of catalog the files on the Unix system. I need to go through the folders on the Unix system and look up files I find to figure out if the files are Unix files of Sphinx files. I also will be writing out the proposal for the software group. I talked with Matt Vartanian about going through the proposal and collaborating on making the proposal better. I will also be checking the proposal page to see what other team have put up. I will also finish the install of VMWare with OpenSuse and Sphinx 3, once I find a copy. I will send out a link to other group members who have not been able to find Sphinx 3.

Concerns

The only concern is documenting all the steps and cataloging the Sphinx files, so they can be helpful in further progress towards the project and future Capstones.

Concerns

I couldn't figure out how to switch from machine to machine from home. If possible I would like some feedback.

  • I think if you are on lets say Caesar you need to type ssh asterix for example and enter password. This way you move from one machine to another one. Hope this helps! Damir Ibrahimovic

Week Ending February 20th, 2012

Task
  • Tuesday - Read Logs
  • Wednesday - N/A
  • Thursday - N/A
  • Friday - Worked on Software Groups proposal.
  • Saturday - Finishing the software specification page.
  • Sunday - Read Proposal
  • Monday - Update Proposal and Create Notes page.
Results
  • Tuesday - I realized I need to get in high gear to get the proposal done.
  • Wednesday - N/A
  • Thursday - N/A
  • Friday - Wrote the Overview and Software Proposal. Wrote the Phases. I was able to estimate the the need to complete the Software part of the Capstone. I believe that Phase 1 and 3 could be shorter in time. But believe that with the work of Phase 2 the Software Group might need extra time to write scripts and find out what the Sphinx files do.
  • Saturday - Made a command section of the current software page. I think it will help people who are having trouble with the commands. I want to see if I could get other to add to the list with command they find useful during the project for current and future Capstone Members. You can find the page at this link Current Software page.
  • Sunday - I think our proposal is coming around. A little more work and it could turn out good.
  • Monday - I updated the proposal for Professor Jonas comments. I created a timeline of the task I would complete. I made the beginning of the Mini Train and Full Train and took on the responsibility for make a Language Model and Updating that Language Model if we get to the Full Train. I created a Notes page and moved the Unix command to that page. If you want to see the Notes page.
Plan

Will find a scripting language that will help my group to complete the proposal. Start to catalog the Sphinx files and finding out what some of these files do. I would also like to start building a hierarchy of the mount drive location of the script we will be moving. I think by this the end of next week I will be able to start writing a script for easy task, such as making directories and copying files and moving them. Start to complete my task for Phase 1 of the proposal.

Concerns

To find a scripting language that future students will not have a hard time to update the scripts I will be writing. I hope people will add to the Mini Train and Full Train and take on tasks. There seems to be a lot to do.

Plan

Hope to have a flowing, well written Proposal prepared for Capstone. I think everyone did a great job. I made the directories for the install of Sphinx 3 and tools that me a Matt Vartanian will link from Majestix. I think I need another directory under the install directory. I will contact Matt Vartanian to ask him if he remembers. I will make the directory /etc/local/bin and /etc/local/binold once we are ready to install. Thanks to Matt Vartanian, I was able to make all of the directories. I will talk to Matt Vartanian on Tuesday about install the software planned in our proposal.

Concerns

I hope no one is mad that I made a link out of their name. I think I forgetting a directory I need to make under /mnt/main/root/install I will talk to Matt Vartanian about it. I talked to Matt Vartanian and he had the missing directory in his notes. Thank you Matt Vartanian.

  • Sunday - Looked through the Logs. Some have been update some have not. Still plan on install Sphinx 3 on Mejestix on Monday.
  • Monday - I copied the sphinx3 install files to the /mnt/main/root/install/sphinx3 directory. I don't know if I have to copy the files to Majestix before I run the install. I will talk to Professor Jonas tomorrow before completing the install to make sure. I don't want to run the install from the mounted drive unless I am sure it is the right place.
Plan

To get Sphinx 3 Installed on Majestix by Monday. I successfully installed Sphinx 3 on my OpenSUSE virtual machine. I ran into a problem with the c compiler when trying the use make command. The make command brings the configuration file that are ran with the ./configure command together. Make will also be ran to clean up the files left behind from the install. Copying the sphinx3 install files to the mount drive. I am not sure if I can install from that point. I will wait until tomorrow before I run the install. I will also talk to Matt about running the speechtools so we can test our installs.

  • Monday - Installed the trainer on Majestix. I checked Caesar's /usr/local/bin and compared them with Majestix. They have the same files. I'm not sure how to run a train. Will need to ask the training group tomorrow if they know how. I would like to see if the link works with the trainer as it does with the decoder.
Plan

Need to fix c compiler problem on Virtual machine. I believe I will have to download a c compiler for OpenSUSE. I will do this Friday when I test the install of the train on my virtual machine. Read to install Trainer on Majestix on Monday.

Concerns

Trying to figure out how to run the trainer. When I figure out how I will be able to see if the link with the shared drive works. The install populated the shared drive. I think the best thing to do is ask the trainer group which file and how to run the trainer.

  • Friday - I went over the Software Installation page and corrected the mistakes that I found. I am hoping Matt will do the same if I missed anything. I do not know where the package command came from, so I Googled how to extract a tar file and found the right command. I used psftp to send a test text file to /mnt/main/home/sp12/jwz42. Since I used the psftp program I put that into the installation page on how to move a file from windows to linux.
  • Saturday - N/A
  • Sunday - I started the process of running the train on Automatix. I needed to change the permissions for the Exp directory, because I could not create a 0001 directory. I am now looking in the setup_SphinxTrain.pl script to try and find where the script looks for the executable files.
  • Monday - Not too familiar with Perl, still trying to find the executable files the script is looking for. I read the Sphinx Experiment Notes and Group Logs and Member Logs.
Plan

My plan is to try and experiment with running a train and to keep up with my teammates and other teams progress through the week. I would also be looking in on the making of the poster for class. I will also be finishing updating the Software Installation Page.

Concerns

I would like someone to go over the installation page and see if the page could be better. I have spent two days on this page and I would like some feedback. So, if anyone has anytime and wants to look it over, that would be great. Thanks. I will keep checking back throughout the weekend. Just looking for for the part of the script that has the path to the executable files the script is looking for.

  • Monday - Try and run a mini train.
Results
  • Tuesday - We went through running Summer 2011 steps with our tweaks we have been setting in place all week. Dr. Jonas changed the setup_SphinxTrain.pl script. He replaced the SPHINXTRAINDIR = $0 to SPHINXTRAINDIR = /mnt/main/root/speechtools So the setup_SphinxTrain.pl script would work. We went through the sets to set up the 0001 directory for our experiment. I also copied the sphinx_train.cfg file to /mnt/main/root/docs/ directory. We setup our weekly meetings.
  • Wednesday - N/A
  • Thursday - I updated the Software Installation page with a new introduction.
  • Friday - Bryce, Bethany and I worked on the train today over skype. I had to change the permission on our 0001 folder and sub folders. I did 777 again. Tomorrow I will go back change the permissions for that file and the other Exp file. I had to copy the sphinx_train.cfg file from the /root/speecchtools/SphinxTrain-1.0/train1/etc on caesar to /mnt/main/root/tool/SphinxTrain-1.0/etc because the file was empty when I used the more command on it. Bryce change some scripts. Bethany tried and finish genPhones script. All it all we go almost to the decoder. But not yet we are looking for a wave2feat.c file that apparently other students from other college have ran into this same problem. No one really knows how to fix it. We continue to search for the this file.
  • Saturday - Been searching for the wave2feat.c file fix with no luck. I guess I will keep looking.
  • Sunday - N/A
  • Monday - Tried to find the answer to this wave2feet.c question. No luck so far. Hopefully someone has some insight tomorrow.
