• MakeNL installation - Linux

    From Flavio Bessa@4:801/188 to All on Tuesday, January 19, 2021 09:17:10

    What would be the correct path for MakeNL installation under Linux?

    Should I download the source from Sourceforge and compile it or is there
    a specific package for Debian?

    You download and compile.

    The CMake makefile installs to /usr/local/bin/ by default.

    On Debian that directory is probably already in your PATH.

    Not that I know of.

    I'd recommend building from source:

    sudo apt install build-essential git cmake pandoc
    git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/makenl/code makenl
    mkdir makenl/build
    cd makenl/build
    cmake ..
    make
    sudo make install

    Jame Clay was working on Debian packages, but I haven't heard from him in some time.

    I'd recommend building from source:

    sudo apt install build-essential git cmake pandoc
    git clone https://git.code.sf.net/p/makenl/code makenl
    mkdir makenl/build
    cd makenl/build
    cmake ..
    make
    sudo make install

    Agreed.

    I'm migrating from a Windows version of MakeNL across to Linux (an OS

    I've followed those instructs with success.

    Just wondering are there any major things I should be aware of when migrating my windows MakeNL files across to the Linux box. All I can
    think of will be altering paths to Linux syntax, but is there anything else that you can think of that I should check on, prepare for?

    Be prepared for issues with filename case. Linux is case sensitive. Make sure that you specify the names for incoming segments exactly as your NCs are sending them.

    Probably case sensitive filenames as Andrew Leary mentioned. The ARCCOPY/ARCMOVE commands also might be a bit different, if you use those.

    (Disclaimer: Despite having contributed to the code (mostly porting & bug fixes), I've never been a regular MakeNL user...)

    are what I have in the windows system, not sure if that blends for the Linux one?

    Archives are unknown in Region54, for nodelist segment purposes. NCs send me text segments and the ZC gets a text region segment. KISS.

    You are your own boss, with two nets. Check with Scott.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    In another network where I submit nodelist segments, I have the following for those lines. This is on a Debian Buster system.

    arccopy z zip -jo
    arcmove z zip -jmo
    arcopen z unzip -oj

    Linux systems normally use Info-ZIP's zip/unzip. Try these:

    ARCCopy z zip -jo
    ARCMove z zip -jmo
    ARCOpen z unzip -oj
