How to install LROSE source on Linux?
For most common LINUX systems, you can install lrose from the packages on this page.
For some of the versions of LINUX, we are still having problems with the Qt5-based applications. These problems include both compile errors, and run-time errors related to problems with dynamically-linked libraries. We are working to identify the cause of the problems. In the meantime, we have documented which applications are available on each OS version.
1. Prepare: Most good, up-to-date LINUX distributions should work.
Recommended distributions are:
- Ubuntu (based on Debian)
- Centos (based on RedHat)
- Fedora (based on RedHat)
First, you will need to install the required packages.
2. Download the source tar file for Linux from: Release A typical source release would be:
- Create a working directory for building the distribution:
tar xvfz lrose-core-20200701.src.tgz
The distribution will be unpacked into a subdirectory:
- Run the build script:
To see the usage:
To build and install into the default directory:
Or set an install directory:
./build_src_release.py --prefix /my/install/dir
- Look in ~/lrose or /my/install/dir for
- Try the commands:
5. Handling build errors
If the build does not complete successfully, you will need to track down the errors.
The very first errors in the build are the most important.
If you get errors, go into the directory giving problems, and run the make as follows:
make |& less
and scroll down searching for error.
make >& make.log
and then inspect the make.log file, searching for error.
To update, just repeat the procedure in sections 2, 3 and 4 above.
The new version will be installed over the previous version.
