Typical Installation by Example

Assuming you have installed your favorite flavor of Linux_ and have logged in to a normal user account with 'sudo' admin priveleges. The following shell session demonstrates how a typical installation is accomplished. Open a shell terminal and follow these steps.

1. Make directory (if required) and change directory to where local system software downloads are to be stored. Here we call it 'Source'.

  • $ mkdir -pv ~/Source/steam-boiler
  • $ cd ~/Source/steam-boiler

2. Download Steam-Boiler and unpack the tarball. The current release distribution archive is: steam-boiler-|version|.tar.bz2.

3. Change directory to where the distribution software was unpacked, configure the build settings, build the software and install Steam-Boiler.

  • $ cd steam-boiler-|version|
  • $ ./configure
  • $ make
  • $ sudo make install


configure also accepts some other, not widely useful, options. Run ./configure --help for more details.
