This short tutorial explains how to download, compile and install successfully the HPKit suite.
What you need
- A PC with GNU/Linux installed (every distro can be good, but this tutorial was written for Linux Mint 17/Ubuntu Trusty);
- Internet connection.
Installing the prerequisites
To download the source code, you have to install git, open a terminal and write this line:
$ sudo apt-get install git
Compiling and installing
Once installed git, create a new directory called hpkit, and get into it:
$ mkdir hpkit $ cd hpkit hpkit $
Now download the source code from the repository:
hpkit $ git clone https://github.com/rapgenic/hpkit.git
Once downloaded, run the configuration script, then make:
hpkit $ ./configure hpkit $ make
If you want to install the binaries into the system, run:
hpkit $ sudo make install # OPTIONAL
If you want to delete the binaries from the system, run:
hpkit $ sudo make uninstall
Downloading source code for later compilation
If you don’t have internet connection enabled in the computer you want to compile this into, download the source code, and extract it in the computer you want to use.
To unzip it run:
$ unzip hpkit-master.zip
Note that the working directory is now hpkit-master.
Then, to compile and install, run:
$ cd hpkit-master hpkit-master $ ./configure hpkit-master $ make hpkit-master $ sudo make install # OPTIONAL
Configure: Permission denied
If you receive this message while configuring:
hpkit $ ./configure sh: ./configure: Permission denied hpkit $
Try to run:
hpkit $ chmod +x ./configure
If it doesn’t work, make sure you have the permission to access the file.
