speak of "rebooting into Linux" or "rebooting into the admin MFS", this
is how I expect you to do it.
3. To do an Emulab client software install, certain other software packages
must be installed. If you are updating a recent Emulab image, these
should all be in place. But if you are updating a really old image,
or you are installing the software for the first time, you will need
these things:
- Elvin headers and libraries. Check for the existance of "libvin4.a"
in your library path (probably in /usr/local/lib). If it doesn't
exist, you will need to download:
build, and install it. Note that this is an older version of elvin,
so you cannot just install a package or RPM.
- Boost headers. Check for the boost directory in the include directory
path (probably in /usr/local/include or even /usr/include).
For FreeBSD you can just install the package or port (version >= 1.30).
For Linux, you may have a harder time. The RedHat RPMs I have found
only include the libraries, you need just the headers (everything we
use is implemented as a template I think). I think I just copied over
the installed headers from a BSD box.
- Perl. On FreeBSD 5, perl is not installed by default. Make sure you
have a version of perl5 installed.
- Ethtool. On Linux, with certain NICs, you will need ethtool (instead
of mii-tool) so that the Emulab software can change link speed/duplex.
Just install an RPM.

and it will build and install all client-side binaries and scripts.
Due to various compiler and library related issues that we have not
yet resolved, the event agents in the event subdirectory, don't build
cleanly on newer FreeBSDs or Redhats. On these systems you can install
the most frequently changed stuff (mostly scripts) by doing:
and it will build the necessary client-side binaries. If something
doesn't build, most likely it is because of a missing software
package, see A3 above. After successfully building, install the
binaries and scripts with:
cd <build-tree-for-this-os>/tmcd
cd {linux,freebsd} # whichever OS you are running
sudo gmake install
If you need to install the other binaries, contact us.
sudo gmake client-install
If you did the backup, you can then compare the original to the new:
