Resource Menu

In order to use the Libresource installer you have to install a jdk (>1.4) and postgres (>7.4).

This page explain how to install LSC on a mac OS X (10.4)

Install Java

Mac OS X Tiger includes the full version of J2SE 1.4.2, preinstalled with the Java Development Kit (JDK) and the HotSpot virtual machine (VM), so you don't have to download, install, or configure anything. If you want to use a JDK 1.5, you have to install it manually. I have used the following package :

After installation, update the JDK links stored in /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/ directory to the new JDK path (/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5)

Install PosqreSQL

You can install PosgreSQL Database server with the fink program.

fink install postgresql
sudo fink install postgresql

Then, init the database system giving an empty working directory, for example /Users/user/database :

mkdir database
initdb database

Start the database server with the following command :

postmaster-8.0 -D /Users/user/database/ -i &

Finally, create a new database with the command :

createdb libresource

Postgres is now ready. You can run the Libresource installer.

Install LibreSource

java -jar LibreSource-Community-1.5-Installer.jar

You can watch our installation demo to see the installer in action demo
