Instructions for System Configuration (using apt-get):

Some system installs do not come with the necessary tool-chain and supporting packages to build lbsh. This is a simple set of apt-get commands to run to bring a system up to the right state to build lbsh. Before getting started, there are a number of other pages that document using apt-get and various pieces of the below. For example, this page is a much more detailed (and probably better) description of how to do this on various other platforms.

Simple Linux instructions

You can download the current .dep file from sourceforge and run:

  sudo dpkg -i lbsh_<ver>_i386.dep
Then you can ask apt-get to get all the dependencies for you:
  sudo apt-get -f install

Building from sources instructions

You need to have a compiler (C and C++), the boost regular expression (regex) library, and ncurses installed. If you are mildly familiar with apt-get and have su or sudo access you should do the following:

  sudo apt-get install build-essential
  sudo apt-get install libboost.*-dev libboost-doc libboost.*1.34.1
  sudo apt-get install ncurses-base  ncurses-bin ncurses-term libncurses5 libncurses5-dev
After this, you should be able to build lbsh.
