Downloading_source_files

Allan Cunliffe Kirti Chennareddy

Xena is composed of the core Xena application and a number of plug-ins. Each plug-in handles the functions associated with a particular category of input file being processed by Xena. For example, the audio plug-in converts audio files, such as MP3s to the preservation audio file format, FLAC. This conversion process is referred to as Normalisation. For Xena to be fully operational, you must download Xena and all of the plug-ins from the SourceForge Git repository.

The list of available modules at any given time can be found by visiting the SourceForge Git viewer for Xena.

Checking out Xena source files from the SourceForge Git repository

By following this procedure, the xena directory will be downloaded to the xena-source directory you created earlier (see [Preparing_for_installation]).

From the command-line:

1. Ensure you are in the directory where you want to check out the xena-source:

cd <path to the _xena-source_ directory>

2. Clone the Xena Git repository:

git clone git://git.code.sf.net/p/xena/xena

Result: The new directories should now be in your xena-source directory. To build Xena, follow the [Building_Xena] procedure.
