Building AMC from
subversion repository (deprecated)
Note: Building from
subversion repository is not recommended. Please follow the instructions on Building AMC from mercurial repository
This how to assumes a debian/ubuntu system and has been tested on all stable versions of Ubuntu.
The steps to execute are:
$ sudo apt-get install subversion
2) Download (checkout) from the repository¶
$ svn co http://svn.gna.org/svn/auto-qcm/trunk auto-qcm
$ cd auto-qcm $ make deb
This might show some unfulfilled dependencies and therefore might fail.
The dependencies may include *libnetpbm10-dev libcv-dev libhighgui-dev dblatex docbook-xsl librsvg2-bin libxml-libxml-perl g++ and libgtk2-notify-perl netpbm libopencv-dev libpoppler-glib-dev texlive-lang-french *
h3. 4) Install dependencies
$ sudo apt-get install libnetpbm10-dev libcv-dev libhighgui-dev dblatex docbook-xsl librsvg2-bin libxml-libxml-perl g++ libgtk2-notify-perl netpbm libopencv-dev libpoppler-glib-dev texlive-lang-french $ make debThis should produce four .deb package in the /tmp directory, which can be checked.
The package will be named:
where x, y, z, u and v depend on your processor architecture and the revision at the moment of your checkout.
5) Install AMC¶
- First install the platform independent files
$ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/auto-multiple-choice-common_x.y.z-u_all.deb
- Then install the documentation
$ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/auto-multiple-choice-doc_x.y.z-u_all.deb $ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/auto-multiple-choice-doc-pdf_x.y.z-u_all.deb
- Now install the platform dependent files
$ sudo dpkg -i /tmp/auto-multiple-choice_x.y.z-u_v.deb
dpkg might complain that some dependencies are not fulfilled. You can install them using
sudo apt-get install as above.
You should also consider installing the recommended packages (see the
Recommends: line in source:debian/control) with
dpkg does not tell you if they are missing!
6) Update AMC¶
If you want to stay on the bleeding edge,
svn update in the auto-qcm sub directory and then rerun the package making and installation process.
$ cd .../auto-qcm $ svn up $ make deb
