Let's do everything as root; it's a little simpler:
You will be prompted for a password.
We can install some of the dependencies from packages:
apt-get update apt-get install -y ocaml-native-compilers ocaml-compiler-libs camlp4\* \ liblablgtk2-gnome-ocaml-dev graphviz uml-utilities \ bridge-utils vde2 gcc xserver-xephyr make gettext xterm bzr
These are needed for installing VDE2 from sources, which may or may not be needed (Ubuntu packages for VDE2 look oldish; they might work, but compiling the most recent version won't hurt):
apt-get install -y g++ subversion autoconf automake libtool
Build a temporary directory for the source part:
Now you have to install VDE2. You can either use a package or compile it from sources. Compiling from sources might not be needed depending on the distribution, but the ubuntu packages I've seen look oldish.
Here is how to install VDE2 from a package:
apt-get install -y vde2
apt-get instsall -y libvdeplug2
This is how to compile VDE from sources:
cd ~/tmp svn co https://vde.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/vde/trunk/vde-2 vde_svn cd vde_svn mkdir m4 # This was needed the last time I tried, on 2009-05-29 autoreconf -fi ./configure && make && make install
Download, compile and install the latest version of ocamlbricks:
cd ~/tmp bzr get --verbose lp:ocamlbricks/0.90.x ocamlbricks cd ~/tmp/ocamlbricks make && make install
Download, compile and install the latest version of marionnet:
cd ~/tmp bzr get --verbose lp:marionnet/0.90.x marionnet cd ~/tmp/marionnet make && make install
Download and install virtual machine (and router) filesystems; you will need some free disk space for this step:
cd /usr/local/share/marionnet/ wget http://www.marionnet.org/download/snapshots/stuff/filesystems-most-recent.tar.bz2 tar xfv filesystems-most-recent.tar.bz2 rm -f filesystems-most-recent.tar.bz2
Download and install UML kernels:
cd /usr/local/share/marionnet/ wget http://www.marionnet.org/download/snapshots/stuff/uml-kernel-binaries-most-recent.tar.bz2 tar xfv uml-kernel-binaries-most-recent.tar.bz2 rm -f uml-kernel-binaries-most-recent.tar.bz2
Marionnet will work after the steps above, but there are a couple of optional features which need some system configuration. We have a whole page about Marionnet post-installation setup.
