Installation Manual

Build and Runtime Environment

The Accelerator projects has been built, tested, and runs on:

  • Ubuntu16.04 and Debian 9,
  • FreeBSD 11.1

but is in no way limited to these systems or versions.


  1. Clone the repository.

  2. Install dependencies. On Debian and Ubuntu

    sudo apt-get install build-essential python-dev python3-dev zlib1g-dev git virtualenv

  3. Run the setup script

    cd accelerator-project_skeleton

    Please read and modify this script according to your needs.

  4. Done. The Accelerator is now ready for use.

The script will clone both the accelerator-gzutil and the main accelerator repositories. The gzutil library will be set up in virtual environments for Python2 as well as Python3, and the Accelerator will be set up as a git submodule to the project_skeleton repository.
