User:Armenzg:set my environment up

From MozillaWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

These are the steps I will follow every time to set up my working environment:



  • get Chicken of the VNC
  • get Remote Desktop for Windows
  • get iTerm
  • get MacPorts
    • sudo port install mercurial libidl autoconf213
    • sudo port install wget
  • get VMWare Fusion 2 (VMware-Fusion-2.0.6-196839)
  • Most info extracted from this page: Mac OS X Build Prerequisites


NOTE: if you are doing this on a VM with VirtualBox make sure that you run this sudo apt-get install dkms and use this to recompile if needed: /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup

  • Install the following packages:
    • Konversation (for IRC conversations)
    • Vim (better edition that comes by default)
      • TODO: Read this article and extract useful stuff 1
    • ssh client comes install by default but this package pulls the server as well
    • cvs client
    • OpenVpn
    • Mercurial
    • CVS tools for non-comitters specially
sudo apt-get install konversation
sudo apt-get install vim
sudo apt-get install ssh
sudo apt-get install cvs
sudo apt-get install openvpn
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-dev build-essential
sudo easy_install -U mercurial
sudo apt-get install cvsutils
touch ~/.cvspass
