Linux installation

Postby healy » Wed Nov 17, 2010 7:12 pm

This is the sequence of steps I took to successfully install GMAT development branch (with stars from trunk) on my Debian Linux (testing=squeeze) amd64 computer. I'm posting this for the benefit of anyone who is trying to do a similar installation.

Code: Select all
1. [[][Wiki instructions]] following "Development Code"
2. Prepare supporting libraries
   1. sudo aptitude install libwxgtk2.8-dev libglu1-mesa-dev libdevil-dev
   2. Rebuild wxWidgets library without unicode
      1. Because the Debian-supplied libwxgtk is compiled with unicode
         support which GMAT will not work with, it is necessary to
         recompile from source.
      2. Option: from Debian source FAILS due to [[][apparent bug]]
    1. cd /tmp
    2. apt-get source libwxgtk2.8-dev
    3. sudo aptitude build-dep libwxgtk2.8-dev
    4. Edit debian/rules to set WX_UNICODE ?= 0
    5. cd wxwidgets2.8-
    6. dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us  ### THIS FAILS ###
    7. cd ..
    8. dpkg -i ../*.deb
      3. Option: download source and build
    1. wget
    2. tar jxvf wxWidgets-2.8.11.tar.bz2
    3. cd wxWidgets-2.8.11
    4. ./configure --with-opengl
    5. It does say at the end:
      Should wxWidgets be compiled in Unicode mode?           no
    6. make
    7. su
    8. make install
    9. ldconfig
    10. Confirm  wx-config --gl-libs  ==> -lwx_gtk2_gl-2.8
3. Get a git repository and branch
   1. git svn clone --prefix origin/ --stdlayout
   2. cd gmat
   3. git svn fetch
   4. git checkout -t origin/development
   5. git branch lmh
   6. git checkout lmh
4. Get needed support files
   1. Per [[file:~/satellite/gmat/bin/bin_setup.txt][instructions]], from the [[][GMAT download page]] get newest [[][GMAT
      data files]].  I got gmat-datafiles-2008-09-30.tar.gz, the newest
      version available.
   2. tar zxvf gmat-datafiles-2008-09-30.tar.gz
   3. mv files bin
   4. I did not need to copy gmat_startup_file.txt because I already
      copied it.
5. Put build configuration files in the right place with needed settings
   1. Can't/don't cp build/linux/MakeGmat.eclipse src; it's already there.
   2. cp build/linux64/ src
   3. cp build/linux64/gmat_startup_file.txt bin
   4. [[file:~/satellite/gmat/src/][Settings]]: leave USE_64_BIT_LONGS = 1, SHARED_BASE = 1 but change
      USE_SPICE = 0.
6. make
7. Commit all additions with git commit
8. To get the star catalog (this will get the changes from the tip of the trunk branch):
    git cherry-pick master
9. Setup and run
   1. export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/satellite/gmat/bin/
   2. It must be started from the bin directory: cd ~/satellite/gmat/bin/
   3. ./GMAT
   4. Voila! it runs.
