Ubuntu 8.10/9.04 - 32 bit install

This is the process to install a numpy ANUGA onto a 32 bit Ubuntu 8.10 system. The procedure to install onto a later Ubuntu system should be similar. 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.

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


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

sudo apt-get 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:


The procedure to test your new ANUGA system is at Ubuntu - post-installation test and validation.
