Installation of the Access Grid Software

This section of the guide will provide you with instructions on how to install the Access Grid software.

  • The easiest way to install the AG Toolkit RPM packages is to use the yum package manager. It provides automatic downloading and installation of packages that you specify and also retrieves any missing dependencies.
  • Start up a "Terminal" and switch to superuser. Change into the /etc/yum.repos.d directory. Create a file called ag-sl.repo and edit it. To do this type "vi ag-sl.repo". You then need to type the following into the file. When you are finished, hit the "esc" key, type ":wq" then hit the enter key to save and exit:

[accessgrid3]
name=AccessGrid Fedora $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/accessgrid3/rhel/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/RPM-GPG-KEY-AccessGrid


[accessgrid3-development]
name=AccessGrid Fedora Development
baseurl=http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/accessgrid3/rhel/development/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/RPM-GPG-KEY-AccessGrid

Note: The accessgrid3-development repo isn't enabled in the above repo file, so the --enablerepo switch is used with yum (yum --enablerepo=accessgrid3-development), alternatively change the "enabled=0" line to "enabled=1" so you don't need to use the --enablerepo switch.

Installation of the Access Grid Toolkit 3.x

Issue the command:

yum install AccessGrid

It should be noted, that additional packages are installed when a "yum install AccessGrid" is completed. These include:

  • AGVCR;
  • VPCScreen Capture;
  • SUMOVER "vic" and "rat";

Installation of Additional Access Grid Software

If you wish to use the Shared Presentation application, then you will also need to install the openoffice.org-pyuno RPM:

yum install openoffice.org-pyuno
