Recommended Method for Linux

The recommended installation method is to use the automatic build script which can be found on the SourceForge download page; alternatively you can use this direct link: build.bash.

This script offers easy configuration for the following systems:

  1. Fedora
    1. Fedora 14
    2. Fedora 15
  2. openSUSE
    1. openSUSE 11.2
    2. openSUSE 11.3
    3. openSUSE 11.4
    4. openSUSE 12.1
  3. Ubuntu
    1. Ubuntu 10.10
    2. Ubuntu 11.04

Put the script into the folder where you want to install enGrid. When you execute the script, it will create a sub-folder named engrid where all sources, binaries, and scripts will be installed. For example: If your webrowser automatically puts the script into the folder /home/jonny/Download, and you want enGrid to be in the folder /home/jonny/Software/, put the script into the folder /home/jonny/Software you need to issue the following commands to kick off the installation (provided that the folder /home/jonny/Software does not exist yet:

cd /home/jonny
mkdir Software
cd Software
mv /home/jonny/Download/build.bash .
source build.bash

Afterwards the script will print a list of available configurations. Assuming you are installing enGrid onto an Ubuntu system, please type the following:

source build.bash ubuntu

The script will then ask you for the root password, because it needs to launch the system's package manager in order to install the required dependencies. The steps performed by this script are:

  1. install dependencies
    1. VTK >= 5.4
    2. Qt >= 4.5
    3. standard build environment (gcc, make, ...)
  2. fetch enGrid sources from GIT
  3. compile Netgen library
  4. compile enGrid library
  5. compile enGrid executable

Afterwards an optional set-up script can be called in order to create a start script in /usr/bin and a desktop file to be able to start enGrid from the graphical menu system.

engrid/setup_generic.bash

IMPORTANT: Do not source this script -- otherwise it will not work correctly!

Please note that this script is the same for all Linux distributions. The dedicated scripts (e.g. setup_opensuse.bash) are intended for binary packages.

Recommended Method for Windows

Download and install the desired architecture version:

Alpha and Beta versions can be found here.

General Building Instructions

Building enGrid is somewhat easy, but it's useful that the user already has some background in compiling and building software. The instructions provided here will not inform the user about every single aspect of building enGrid.

Since information about building enGrid can extend considerably, this subject will be divided into various topics.

Building enGrid on a Generic Linux System

This explains the general process of building enGrid on a Linux system; the information provided here is out of date and requires a serious revision.

Building enGrid on a Fedora System

  1. install various packages (as root):
    1. yum install git
    2. yum install subversion
    3. yum install wget
    4. yum install gcc-c++
    5. yum install vtk-qt
    6. yum install qt-devel
    7. yum install vtk-devel
    8. yum install patch
  2. clone git repository and checkout branch release-1.3:
    1. git clone git://engrid.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/engrid/engrid
      # or if you are behind a restrictive firewall
      git clone http://repo.or.cz/r/engrid.git engrid
      # or if neither work, download the tarball
      wget http://repo.or.cz/w/engrid.git/snapshot/release-1.3.tar.gz
      tar -xzf engrid-release-1.3.tar.gz
    2. cd engrid
    3. git checkout -b release-1.3 remotes/origin/release-1.3
  3. setup environment variables:
    1. cd src
    2. source scripts/setup_pathes.bash fedora64
      (or fedora32)
  4. build NETGEN library:
    1. scripts/build-nglib.sh
  5. build enGrid library and executable:
    1. qmake
    2. make -j 4
      (4 is the number of cores your machine has)

Building enGrid on an openSUSE 11.x or 12.x system

  1. add science repository and install various packages (as root):
    1. zypper addrepo http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/science/openSUSE_11.4/ science
      Make sure to set the correct version number for the repository (i.e. 11.2, 11.3, 11.4, or 12.1)
    2. zypper install git-core
    3. zypper install subversion
    4. zypper install libqt4-devel

      tar -xzf engrid-release-1.3.tar.gz
    2. cd engrid
    3. git checkout -b release-1.3 remotes/origin/release-1.3

    1. cd src
    2. source scripts/setup_pathes.bash opensuse64
      or source scripts/setup_pathes.bash opensuse32 for a 32 bit system
