 Nandor Sieben - CD image distribution  7/12/2005; 11:50:41 PM (reads: 1069, responses: 7) Webwork installation is not a trivial task. I think it would be very helpful to have a bootable CD distribution that contains everything needed so that even someone who is not a unix expert could install the system.

One approach I've tried is to create "unit check" type scripts that tell you if things are properly installed so far. It is of course tricky to keep these up to date, and so that they run reliably on all machines, but everyone can help with additions to the twiki (http://devel.webwork.rochester.edu/twiki/bin/view/Webwork/InstallationManualV2pt1#Checking_module_dependancies and also http://devel.webwork.rochester.edu/twiki/bin/view/Webwork/InstallationManualV2pt0#Perl_modules -- currently a bit out of date). I'll try to update the script, or for those of you with commit access to the CVS you can update scripts such as check_modules.pl yourself. <| Post or View Comments |>
