Autoinst Installation Guide

This guide describes the steps for installing Autoinst on a UNIX system from source code.

System Requirements

In order to install Autoinst, your system should meet the following requirements:

  • Apache 2.0 or 2.2. Apache 2 is required because mod_dav_svn requires it.
  • Python 2.3 through 2.6 can be used. The system has been tested on Python 2.4 and 2.6.
  • Subversion 1.4 or 1.5 with the Python bindings.
  • libxml2 2.5.20 or higher, with the Python bindings.
  • libxslt 1.0.3 or higher, with the Python bindings.
  • lxml 2.1 or higher

For systems that only need to install 'aiupdate', only Python 2.3 thru 2.6 is required. An explanation of the difference between a full Autoinst install and 'aiupdate' can be found in the UserGuide.

Getting the Source Code

The Autoinst source code can be found here:

Or, you can check the source code out of the Autoinst Subversion repository by following these instructions.

Installing the Package

Autoinst is written completely in Python, so there is no compiling necessary. To install the package on your system, you can simply use the following commands:

 $ cd autoinst
 $ python setup.py install
