3.6 Installing the Software

To install the software onto your computer, you need to have the necessary permissions to do so. The precise method of obtaining such permission is dependent on your operating system, but the command su or sudo bash are common ways it is done. Normally a password is required.

Then you can type ‘make install’ and the software will be installed. You should see a result similar to Figure 3.2.

/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/share/upad/s12z
/usr/bin/install -c -t /usr/local/share/upad/s12z  target/s12z/bounce.bin
/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install -c -s -t /usr/local/bin upad
/usr/bin/install -c -d /usr/local/share/info
/usr/bin/install -c -t /usr/local/share/info doc/

Figure 3.2: Installing the software

After installation has finished, if you used the su or sudo bash command as described above, then you should now type ‘exit’ to return to your original shell.
