Where did you get a copy of ikpx.py from, exactly? Presumably it should have come from here, and it should probably have ended up in a local git repository folder in company with all its friends from that metasat remote repository -- not necessarily in Golly's Scripts/Python folder. There's no "import golly" in ikpx.py, so it's not really directly a Golly-dependent Python script and shouldn't be run inside Golly... all those "print" commands aren't going to do too much in Golly where there's no console window for them to go to.

Start with the readme file in the link and see how far you can get. Big disclaimer: I haven't made my own clone of metasat or tried to get ikpx working in Cygwin (or anywhere else).

In particular, on MacOS ikpx should be run from the terminal - in a similar way to what you've been doing for gfind. In addition to the metasat folder you will need to choose a separate folder for where to store search progress backup files. I would recommend a folder in the same location as the metasat folder, named ikpx for example. I suggest you create a directory for CA search software rather than using the Documents folder. Then installing and using ikpx would look something like this:

Code: Select all

cd                # To make sure you are in your home directory
mkdir casearch    # Once only, choose whatever name suits you
cd casearch
git clone https://gitlab.com/apgoucher/metasat.git        # Once only, get a copy of the metasat software (including ikpx.py)
mkdir ikpx        # Once only, to create the ikpx directory
cd metasat
python ikpx.py -d /Users/<username>/casearch/ikpx/c3o -v 'c/3o' -f p1w12k42i'(0.0.0.0.0.3)' | tee ~/casearch/ikpx/c3-ikpx.log
The first time you run ikpx it will take a little while to compile iglucose before starting the search. This search should find the turtle within about 10 seconds, and then carry on searching for c/3 asymmetric ships with a domino frontend. Look for a line starting with "Spaceship completed" to find spaceships in the output.

NOTES:
  • The "| tee ~/casearch/ikpx/c3-ikpx.log" part of the command is to save a copy of the ikpx output to a file (as well as display it on screen).
  • The initial rows parameter is generally not necessary, but it is set to i'(0.0.0.0.0.3)' for this search because the default will only find ships with a single dot in the leading row. This would mean that the turtle and all other even bilaterally symmetric ships would not be found by ikpx.
  • Setting the k parameter for this search to 42 is probably a bit high for a long running search, but it does result in finding the turtle a fair bit quicker than with the default.
  • Partial and completed spaceships are output in ikpx's interleaved row format. To convert the pattern, paste it into Golly and then run ikpx2golly.py (run in Golly, found in the metasat folder)
Edit:
1) I just updated my metasat repository and noticed that ikpx now outputs RLE patterns, so no need to use ikpx2golly.py

2) This search highlights a nice feature of ikpx - that it is able to find ships with a width larger than the search width but which are "locally narrow". The next result is this tagalong to the turtle (previously found by Tim Coe according to comments in p3w14l20.rle, from jslife-moving-objects-update-3sep2017)

Basically, it's currently impossible to change the rule.

MetaSAT always crashes on the scripts/head_and_tail.sh part; after compiling march_cc, march_cc throws a segmentation fault and MetaSAT can't copy the "/tmp/cubes" and "/tmp/learnt" files.

I just ran through the instructions from the README with a SAT problem generated by LLS and there were no issues.

From where did you get the cnf file you are trying to find a solution for?

What was the output of scripts/preprocess.sh?

Did you end up with a file named simplified.cnf in the working directory? Presumably yes, otherwise march_cc would have given you an error, not segfaulted.

Does the content of simplified.cnf look reasonable? If you don't know what it should look like, you could post it here.

simplified.cnf was about 90% of the size of lls_problem.cnf (approx. 230 MB)
I tried with smaller problems, though, and march_cc just segfaults even quicker.

What computer architecture are you on?

I'm running Ubuntu under Windows Subsystem for Linux on an x86_64 system (Core i5 i think). My SAT problems were much smaller than yours though. Sorry, not at that system now, but I think the LLS command I used to generate the cnf file was "./lls -r B2ce/S0 -s p3 -b 40 20 --dry_run --save_dimacs" (latest commit on the develop branch). It took glucose-syrup about 11 minutes to prove it unsatisfiable, and about 24 minutes for the iglucose installed by metasat (both using a single thread). So it's not exactly a candidate for metasat and to be honest I tried a few different numbers for how many segments to split the problem into and it seemed that it was going to take much longer than 25 minutes to complete (I didn't let it finish). In any case, even if this isn't an ideal problem, the toolchain worked.

Edit: Could it be that march_cc is running out of memory?

Huh, odd. The march_cc that came with metasat compiled but after running segfaulted - without any noticeable cause.

Ikpx does not (yet) work under Cygwin. The reason why appears to be due to "named pipes" - a method for inter-process communication. In this project they are used to send the SAT search problems and results to and fro between Python and iglucose. I have seen discussions indicating that named pipes can be used in Python under cygwin, but haven't been able to determine how to make it work. This process works seamlessly if ikpx is run under Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) - provided that the work directory for the search (which is where the files which are used for the named pipes are created) is located within the Linux filesystem. Because this works nicely and I barely use Cygwin at all for anything else I haven't tried very hard to get it to work in Cygwin.

None of the partials at those widths are long enough for ikpx to output them.

Also, it's worth noting that ikpx won't find the ship calcyman mentioned above because by default it only searches for ships with one cell on the leading edge. Use the i parameter to modify this behaviour. My post above gives an example for c/3.

You specified k in the list of parameters, but didn't provide a value.

Incidentally, what do you mean by "I checked without pipe"?

A few notes:
- a1000 is pointless, ikpx will never exhaust that search space so you may as well omit it (i.e. unlimited adaptive widening).
- "-e split" is the default, so no need to specify that either.
- w12 is a very wide start for this search. Even though there is no 4c/9 ship of width 11, an ikpx search at that width will still search as yet unexplored parts of the search space due to the floating rows feature.
- For the previous c/2 search, k100 seems rather high. I expect that once you get to widths where spaceships start to be found iglucose will start to get bogged down and you'll spend a lot of time waiting for your SAT problems to be solved.

Ah, in that case I suggest the "tee" command. E.g.

Code: Select all

python metadata/ikpx.py -d ikpx/c2o -v 'c/2o' -f p4w20k40i'(0.0.0.17)' | tee ikpx/c2o-ikpx.log 
This way you get the output displayed on screen and saved to a file.

Please state what you are trying to do - it looks like you are trying to run ikpx as a Golly script. This will not work. Ikpx is not a Golly Python script. To run it you should obtain a copy of the whole metasat repository from https://gitlab.com/apgoucher/metasat and then run ikpx.py from the command line.

Additionally, as mentioned earlier in the thread, http://conwaylife.com/forums/viewtopic. ... 873#p73873 , ikpx does not work under Cygwin.

This does seem to be a topic in desperate need of a LifeWiki tutorial. For example, I'm not finding where the explanation is hiding for the extra states in the little vertical lines above each box in a Grills-rule pattern.

Are you able to get the example searches to work, by opening them in Golly and running grills.py from there? This is what those three files look like (contents stacked one on top of another, so this pattern is no longer a valid input for grills.py):

x = 93, y = 102, rule = Grills

In each case, the top line of the first box is full of DISJUNCTIVE_VARIABLE_STATE (state 4), and the little vertical lines above each box have ORIGIN_STATE cells and state 9+ cells... They're pretty clearly encoding information about which generation is which, among other things (see comments in Grills.rule).

But without spending some serious time reverse-engineering the Python script, it seems pretty hard to figure out how to set up my own search correctly.

Re: Ikpx and grills

Post by AforAmpere » February 14th, 2020, 8:34 pm

Does anyone know how I could go about trying to extend the small asymmetric bits of this C/8 partial with ikpx?

Code: Select all

x = 27, y = 43, rule = B3/S23

Maybe those have small completions that run off to the side.
I and wildmyron manage the 5S project, which collects all known spaceship speeds in Isotropic Non-totalistic rules.

Things to work on:
- Find a (7,1)c/8 ship in a Non-totalistic rule
- Finish a rule with ships with period >= f_e_0(n) (in progress)
