I was trying to get the Gateway Agent Setup up and running. And after following the instructions given on the https://wiki.allseenalliance.org/gateway/getting_started link, I got to the part where you're supposed to start the Gateway Agent (sudo service alljoyn-gwagent start) and ran into a problem.

ubuntu@Ankit:~/allseen/gateway/gwagent$ sudo service alljoyn-gwagent start
Starting service…
Service started
ubuntu@Ankit:~/allseen/gateway/gwagent$ sudo service alljoyn-gwagent status
Checking alljoyn-gwagent...                       The process appears to be dead but pidfile still exists
ubuntu@Ankit:~/allseen/gateway/gwagent$ sudo service alljoyn-gwagent stop
/etc/init.d/alljoyn-gwagent: 29: kill: No such process

Service not running

I think the problem is when we run:

sudo find build -name "GatewayMgmtApp" -type f -exec cp {} /usr/bin/alljoyn-gwagent \;

Because it returns nothing to and the gwagent source built fine for me.

So, am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for your help.

Copy binary file from /opt/alljoyn/gateway/gwagent/build/linux/x86_64/debug/dist/gatewayMgmtApp/bin/alljoyn-gwagent to usr/bin.

This should resolve the error.

It didn't work mate, For more specific, It was core dumped every time that I have run it.

Has anyone else looked at this? I'm running into the same problem. As soon as I start the service I can see it running using ps, but as soon as I run service alljoyn-gwagent status it says that it appears to be dead but the pid still exists. After that it no longer shows up running ps.
