[LON-CAPA-dev] announcing a new super-easy install and update procedure
Sun, 21 Apr 2002 20:03:06 -0400
Installing/upgrading the latest version of LON-CAPA
is now a matter of:
Step 2) tar xzf loncapa.tar.gz
Step 3) ./UPDATE
ONLY three steps.
There will be a fourth step ./TEST which will inform the
user of changes they need to make to the system in order
to support LON-CAPA. (Most of ./TEST is currently
implemented under the "cd loncom/build; make test"
Note that the traditional CVS way of updating your system
is, and will be, supported for the long-term future.
Making a CD-ROM will be a matter of
placing loncapa.tar.gz on the CD-ROM along with
an UPDATE_LONCAPA script.
Update RPMs may also be included on the CD-ROM of
loncapa.tar.gz is currently 1.7 megabytes and 705 files.
