Kappa installation on Ubuntu version 9.10 or higher

Ubuntu versions 8.10 and 9.04

Ubuntu versions 8.10 and 9.04 can still run Kappa and, if the proper versions of the Apache Portable Runtime are installed (1.4.2 for APR and 1.3.9 for APR-UTIL), then they should have complete functionality with the Kappa SQL keyword.

NVIDIA Driver

NOTE: the Ubuntu NVIDIA driver is probably not sufficent–The NVIDIA Driver version 256.XX or higher is needed for all CUDA 3.1software–including Kappa version 1.3 or higher. The NVIDIA Driver version 195.36.15 or higher is needed for all CUDA 3.0 software–including Kappa versions 1.0 – 1.2.

Installing the NVIDIA driver

If you need to install the NVIDIA driver, download it from NVIDIA. Next, press Ctrl-Alt-F1 to change to a console window. Login to the console and at the console command prompt execute the following commands (replace gdm in the commands below with kdm if you are using KUbuntu) (respond to the NVIDIA prompts as appropriate):

sudo apt-get install build-essential
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
sudo bash NVIDIA*,pkg[12].run
sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start

Install prerequisites

To make sure that the libpcrecpp prerequisite is installed, run the following command:

sudo apt-get install libpcrecpp0

You will need the appropriate package files from the Psi Lambda Download/Kappa for Linux.
To install the Kappa Library runtime, including the ikappa example program, run the command:

sudo dpkg -i kappa_version and architecture.deb

where version and architecture is the version of the Kappa Library and the appropriate architecture for your computer.

To install the Kappa Library development files (headers), run the command:

sudo dpkg -i kappa-devel_version_all.deb

where version is the version of the Kappa Library.

To install the Kappa Library languages files (bindings for Perl, Python, Ruby, Lua, etc), run the command:

sudo dpkg -i kappa-languages_version_all.deb
