First things first: read the Installation Manual for 2.4. It's also useful to glance at the specific instructions for the Ubuntu distro since it is the most up-to-date. There is more to installing WeBWorK than just downloading the code. But if you just can't wait, or want to get a look at the code, read on....
There are three ways to download WeBWorK:
- A compressed tarball of the WeBWorK and PG code can be downloaded from SourceForge.
- Installing_from_WW2.4.9_Ubuntu10.04.2LTS_Vanilla_LiveDVD gives instructions for obtaining a DVD from which you can run WeBWorK temporarily without installing on your computer, and then later installing it.
- The code can also be checked out of SVN. We recommend that you install WeBWorK from SVN, since you can get more up-to-date code that may contain bug fixes that haven't been released yet. It also makes updates easier. Code downloaded using the tarball or liveDVD can later be updated using Subversion; the code comes with a link to the current stable version of the code.
Download WeBWorK and PG using SVN
You most likely want the bugfixes branch for the current version. To grab that from SVN, type the following:
svn co http://svn.webwork.maa.org/system/trunk/webwork2 svn co http://svn.webwork.maa.org/system/trunk/pg
See the Installation Manual for 2.4 for information on how to complete your installation after obtaining the code. See the Subversion article for more information on SVN. In June 2010 the WeBWorK switched from the CVS version control sytem to SVN. If you checked out a previous version of WeBWorK from CVS, we recommend that you convert your CVS checkout to SVN.
