Sentinal Linux Download and Installation Instructions

Note: Windows users should download th inclusive Reveal installation kit which includes the Sentinal windows versions at https://sourceforge.net/projects/revealanalyze/ .

You can download the latest sentinal software from any browser here.

Note: As of this writing linux/sentinal can only be run on 64 bit systems.
If you want to run on a 32 bit system consider running under windows.

Or use the command line wget to download into ~/Downloads

wget -O ~/Downloads/sentinal.zip http://sourceforge.net/projects/sentinal/files/latest/download

Unzip the downloaded zip file.
Since I'm user reveal I'll install in my home folder but the sentinal application can be installed anywhere.

unzip ~/Downloads/sentinal.zip

Install PHP application and extensions.

sudo apt-get -y install php5 php5-mysql php5-curl php5-gd php5-cli

Libraries needed for 3D and matrix operations.

sudo apt-get install libatlas3gf-base

Tools needed for post processing setps (mogrify)

sudo apt-get install imagemagick

The bundler application still requires 32 bit libraries (this step takes awhile)

sudo apt-get -y install ia32-libs

Now test sentinal to insure the extentions are loaded.

/tmp/reveal/sentinal/sentinal.sh --dump
