14 \section{Linux binary installation}
15 \label{sec:binlinux}
16
17 \esfinley can be installed as a stand-alone bundle, containing all the required tools.
18 Alternatively, if we have a package for your distribution you can use the standard tools to install.
19
20 Please note, the current 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.}.
21 If you need these features you may need to compile \esfinley from source (see Chapter~\ref{chap:src}.)
22
23 For more information on using the \filename{escript} command please see the User Guide.
24
25 \subsection{Debian 5.0(``Lenny'')}
26
27 Download the escript.deb file.
28 (At time of writing we only produce debs for the i386 architecture.)
29 Execute the following commands as root (you need to be in the directory containing the file).
30 \begin{shellCode}
31 dpkg --unpack escript.deb
32 aptitude install escript
33 \end{shellCode}
34
35 If you use sudo this would be:
36 \begin{shellCode}
37 sudo dpkg --unpack escript.deb
38 sudo aptitude install escript
39 \end{shellCode}
40
41 \subsection{Ubuntu 8.10(``Intrepid Ibex'')}
42
43 Since the installation process for \esfinley is pretty simple you should be able to use the same Lenny package for Ubuntu as well.
44 Please notify the development team if this is not the case.
45 Note that you will need to use the ``sudo'' instructions.
46
47
48 \subsection{Stand-alone bundle}
49
50 Download the bundle and decompress it.
51 \begin{shellCode}
52 tar -xjf escript.tar.bz2
53 \end{shellCode}
54 This will produce a directory called \filename{stand}.
55 You can rename or move it as is convienient to you.
56 Test your installation by running:
57 \begin{shellCode}
58 stand/escript.d/bin/escript
59 \end{shellCode}
60 You should get a normal python shell.
61 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).
