Supported Platforms

Currently the only supported platform is Ubuntu 12.04. We have tested and confirmed that x32 and x64 Ubuntu Desktop and Server successfully build WOCE. Other platforms may work but are not supported.

Installation on Ubuntu


Your Ubuntu installation will need the following installed. If you do not have them, run the command after the package name. You can test if they are found by just typing the command name. If it says command not found, you need to install it.

git sudo apt-get install git-core
gcc sudo apt-get install build-essential
python sudo apt-get install python

If you're uncertain at all, and you're using Ubuntu 12.04, just cut and paste the following. If they are already installed, they'll be skipped.

sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential python

Note: If you are a beginner with Ubuntu Linux Distribution, you should update all the packages on your system to avoid problems when you will compile.

If you're on a 64-bit system, you will also need to install the multilibs package.

Start setup

  • Create a WOCE directory, we recommend you place it in your home directory.
  • Clone down the woce-build repo from github. git clone git://www.github.com/woce/seecretfornow
  • Start the build. this is as simple as cd'ing into the woce-build directory and ruuning make or if you have multiple cores make -j<number of cores here>
  • When the build finishes the binary's will be under the packages folder in their appropriate directories
