Getting Started

You need:

  • A Subversion client with SSL support
    • (on Mac OS X you can use e.g.: fink install svn-client-ssl)
    • (in kubuntu use: sudo apt-get install subversion)
    • (you can also install subversion from the source:
 curl http://subversion.tigris.org/downloads/subversion-1.3.2.tar.gz | tar zxf -
 cd subversion-1.3.2
 ./configure --with-ssl
 make
 sudo make install
  • The boost libraries 1.35
    (presently this is the CVS head, go here for instructions how to access the CVS; during checkout use "boost" instead of "modulename")
  • Now build boost jam, where in the last line operating-system should be copied from the output of the build, $BINDIR is the directory where you want to install the executable:
 cd boost/tools/jam/src
 sh build.sh
 install bin.operating-system/bjam $BINDIR
  • Next, build the boost binaries, where in the last line we assume you use the GNU compiler. In other cases, checkout here for the right toolset
 cd boost/
 bjam --toolset=gcc stage
  • Now, you must apply for an account to the ALPS subversion repository. Send your request via email to Emanuel Gull. After an account has been created for you (usually, Emanuel is very fast in doing so...), change your password here.
  • You are now in the position to get the latest ALPS V1 svn-head, by using
 svn co --username your_user_name http://alps.comp-phys.org/svn/alps
