Installation procedures for the imminent ANUGA numpy release

This page describes the procedures used to install the ANUGA support packages which allow you to run numpy ANUGA on Ubuntu 8.10 (32 or 64 bit) and 32 bit Windows (XP or Vista).

This page will exist until the numpy release is finalised, at which time these procedures will be moved to the ANUGA installation guide.

The procedures below use various support packages such as numpy. The files containing the packages may be downloaded from SourceForge in the numpy_support_software package.

Before testing the installation, you must have installed the ANUGA system.

Source package installations require you to unpack a *.tgz file. It doesn't matter where you do this, as you don't need the unpacked directory after a successful installation. You could use /tmp, for instance.

Ubuntu 8.10 - 32 bit

Using the Ubuntu Synaptic package manager, install the following packages:


Of course, if you prefer using the console, you could do:

sudo install subversion

and so on.

Next, you need to install !NetCDF 4.0.1 from the source package:

tar xzf netcdf.tar.gz
cd netcdf-4.0.1
make check
sudo make install

Now install ScientificPython 2.9.0:

tar xzf ScientificPython-2.9.0.tar.gz
cd ScientificPython-2.9.0
python build --numpy
sudo python install

And finally, install matplotlib through Synaptic:


You should already have installed ANUGA to some convenient place.

Ubuntu 8.10 - 64 bit


Testing the installation

to test all of ANUGA:

cd $HOME/ga/branches/numpy/anuga export PYTHONPATH=$HOME/ga/branches/numpy python python # OK cd

to validate ANUGA:

cd $HOME/ga/branches/numpy_anuga_validation/automated_validation_tests python # OK cd
