Downloading and Building LDV¶
Downloading all sources¶
We recommend using Git of version 1.6.6 or newer. With this version getting sources is easy:
$ git clone --recursive git://forge.ispras.ru/ldv-tools.git
(you'll download about 900 Mb, and the build will span to up to 5 Gb)
If, upon executing the command, it says that
--recursive is not supported, then you're running an older version of Git. If you don't want to upgrade, please, refer to downloading sources with older version of Git.
Current stable version is
v0.8. To get it, after downloading, please perform:
$ cd ldv-tools && git checkout v0.8 && git submodule update --init --recursive
Downloading sources of subprojects (submodules) is crucial. LDV-tools won't build without submodules.
After you downloaded all the sources, you may examine source:INSTALL file for further instructions.
Note that LDV Tools has a considerable number of prerequisites. A full installation of LDV-tools requires C++, Java and OCaml compilers, Perl and Ruby interpreters and some modules/gems for them, and a web server that runs PHP 5. A full and concise list of prerequisites can be found in the source:INSTALL file.
LDV Tools take one or two hours to build.
LDV Tools in Docker¶
To try LDV Tools without installation all dependencies on your machine, you can use Docker images as described in the tutorial.
