Build package commands, DESTDIR is used for gui packaging only
./bootstrap.sh ./configure make mkdir /tmp/core-gui make fpm DESTDIR=/tmp/core-gui
This will produce:
- CORE GUI rpm/deb files
- CORE ns3 rpm/deb files
- CORE python rpm/deb files for SysV and systemd service types
First start the CORE services:
# sysv sudo service core-daemon start # systemd sudo systemctl start core-daemon
This automatically runs the core-daemon program. Assuming the GUI is in your PATH, run the CORE GUI by typing the following:
This launches the CORE GUI. You do not need to run the GUI as root.
