Installation of the Access Grid Software

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

  1. The easiest way to install the AG Toolkit Fedora RPM packages is to use the yum package manager which is included with Fedora. It provides automatic downloading and installation of packages that you specify and also retrieves any missing dependencies.

  2. Start up "Terminal" and switch to superuser. Change into the /etc/yum.repos.d directory. Create a file called ag-fedora-stable.repo and edit it. To do this type "vi ag-fedora-stable.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 Core $releasever - $basearch
baseurl=http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/accessgrid3/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Installation of the Access Grid Toolkit 3.x

issue the command:

After installation, logout and login to allow the new GNOME/KDE Access Grid menu to take effect.

If 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 the Access Grid Toolkit 2.x
