13     \section{Linux binary installation}
14 jfenwick 2294 \label{sec:binlinux}
15    
16 caltinay 2536 \esfinley can be installed as a stand-alone bundle, containing all the required dependencies.
17 jfenwick 2294 Alternatively, if we have a package for your distribution you can use the standard tools to install.
18 caltinay 2536 Please note, however, that the current binary packages do not support \openmp\footnote{This is due to a bug related to gcc 4.3.2.} or \mpi\footnote{Producing packages for \mpi requires knowing something about your computer's configuration.}.
19 jfenwick 2324 If you need these features you may need to compile \esfinley from source (see Sections~\ref{sec:compilesrc} and \ref{sec:compileescriptlinux}.)
20 jfenwick 2294
21 jfenwick 2317 For more information on using the \filename{escript} command please see the User Guide.

23 caltinay 2538 If you are using Debian (5.0 - ``Lenny'') or Ubuntu (8.10-``Intrepid Ibex'', 9.04-``Jaunty Jackalope'') then see \Sec{sec:debian}.
24     For other Linux distributions refer to \Sec{sec:standalonelinux}

26 caltinay 2536 \subsection{Debian 5.0(``Lenny''), Ubuntu 8.10(``Intrepid Ibex'') or 9.04(``Jaunty Jakalope'')}\label{sec:debian}
27 jfenwick 2529
28 jfenwick 2333 Download the \filename{escript.deb} file.
29 caltinay 2536 (At the time of writing we only produce deb's for the i386 architecture.)
30 jfenwick 2294 Execute the following commands as root (you need to be in the directory containing the file).
31     \begin{shellCode}
32     dpkg --unpack escript.deb
33     aptitude install escript
34     \end{shellCode}
35    
36 caltinay 2536 If you use sudo (for example on Ubuntu) this would be:
37 jfenwick 2294 \begin{shellCode}
38     sudo dpkg --unpack escript.deb
39     sudo aptitude install escript
40     \end{shellCode}
41    
42 caltinay 2536 This should install \esfinley and its dependencies on your system.
43     Please notify the development team if something goes wrong.

46 jfenwick 2529 \subsection{Stand-alone bundle}\label{sec:standalonelinux}
47 jfenwick 2294
48 jfenwick 2317 Download the bundle and decompress it.
49     \begin{shellCode}
50     tar -xjf escript.tar.bz2
51     \end{shellCode}
52     This will produce a directory called \filename{stand}.
53     You can rename or move it as is convienient to you.
54     Test your installation by running:
55     \begin{shellCode}
56     stand/escript.d/bin/escript
57     \end{shellCode}
58     You should get a normal python shell.
59 caltinay 2536 If you wish to save on typing you can add \filename{x/escript.d/bin} to your PATH variable (where x is the absolute path to your install).
