Silly nubie question: I have Ubuntu 8.04. Which download file do I need? I assume it's gtm_V53002_linux_i686_pro.tar.gz ? And once downloaded is it just a question of expanding the archive - but where to? Sorry but I've only ever installed software using the package manager before...
Thanks - Graham
The package you selected is ok.
I think you should unpack it in a folder like /usr/local/bin/gtm
then you should download "GT.M-x86-UNIX-AdminOpsGuide" - there are several hints how to get started.
Since GT.M has an assigned name from lanana.org may I suggest installing it in /opt/lsb-gtm/V5.3-0002_i686?
Thanks Jens. I reckon that's enough to get me going.
Cheers G :)
I'm 'newbi grande' in both Linux (Ubuntu 8) and GT.M .
After download, extract, and running configure (all seemed to go well) running 'sh gtmbase' sends the message
"Updating your login files to support GT.M. You must log out
and log back in for these changes to take effect."
I'm unble to start MUMPS or get to a MUMPS prompt.
Have I missed a step?
Maybe it's not the official way, but i do it like that:
unpack the gtm-install-file in the /tmp dir
Then edit the file /etc/bash.bashrc and add the following lines at the end:
export gtm_dist="/opt/fis-gtm" (or whatever directory you choosed)
export gtmroutines="$gtm_dist /var/gtmroutines" (Blank-char after $gtm_dist!)
alias gtm="$gtm_dist/mumps -di"
alias gde="$gtm_dist/mumps -r ^GDE"
then open new terminal window and start gde
leave gde with exit and create the database with
# mupip create
after this you can start gtm with
it works like this here, maybe someone knows better, i like to learn too...
Jens, thank you! That's got me going.
