Please ensure that CERE's dependencies are installed on your system:

It is very important that you install a dragonegg plugin which is both compatible with your gcc and llvm versions. For this we recommend that you manually install from source llvm-3.5.2 and dragonegg-3.5.2.

Then run the following command inside CERE directory:

   $ ./
   $ ./configure
   $ make
   $ make install

If you are not interested in Fortran support, you can configure CERE using

  $ ./configure --without-dragonegg

In that case you will not be able to compile Fortran programs, but you do not need to install dragonegg or gfortran. Tests that depend on Fortran in the testsuite will fail.

If needed, LLVM path, dragonegg path, and gcc path can be configured with the following options:

   $ ./configure --with-llvm=<path to llvm install directory> \
                 --with-dragonegg=<path to> \
                 CC=<gcc binary compatible with installed dragonegg>

Once installation is over, we recommend that you run the test suite to ensure CERE works as expected on your system:

   $ make check

For example on an Ubuntu x86_64 14.04 release, you should use the following install procedure:

   $ sudo apt-get install clang-3.5 llvm-3.5-dev \
       gcc-4.7 gfortran-4.7 autoconf automake build-essential libtool ruby-ronn \
       python python-matplotlib python-jinja2 python-pydot python-pygraphviz \
       python-sklearn python-numpy python-networkx python-pip google-perftools \
       libgoogle-perftools-dev numactl dc

   $ wget
   $ tar xvf dragonegg-3.5.2.src.tar.xz && cd dragonegg-3.5.2.src
   $ make && sudo cp /usr/local/lib/. && cd ..

   $ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/llvm-config-3.5 /usr/local/bin/llvm-config
   $ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ /usr/lib/
   $ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/clang /usr/lib/llvm-3.5/bin/clang

   $ sudo pip install pulp

   $ cd cere/
   $ ./
   $ ./configure \
       --with-dragonegg=/usr/local/lib/ \
   $ make && make install
   $ make check
