Autobuild is under active development, so it's recommended that you get the latest version and keep it up to date:
- CD to where you want to install autobuild. Do not have any spaces in the path to this directory.
hg clone http://hg.secondlife.com/autobuild
- Modify your path statement to include the autobuild
Alternatively, it is available as a PyPI package:
pip install autobuild
of if you don't have pip or easy_install
hg clone http://hg.secondlife.com/autobuild cd autobuild python setup.py install
|Note: Windows' users need to create an environment variable to tell autobuild it should use VC 2010, as otherwise it will default to VC 2003. Find a "My Computer" icon, there are several ways to do this which vary depending on which version of Windows you are using. Usually you can find one through the "Start" menu button. Right-click the icon and select "Properties". When the Properties dialogue opens, click the "Advanced" tab followed by the "Environmental Variables" button. This will open a new dialogue with a list of System and User variables. In the User section, click "New". Your "Variable Name" should be AUTOBUILD_VSVER and the "Variable Value" is 100. Once you have done that, click the OK/Close buttons to clear the dialogues.|
|Note: On Windows there is no need to perform this install step. Stop here and resume following the Windows build instructions.
You may need administrative privilege on your system to install into system command directories.
|Note: If you are using Cygwin on Windows, you must also add your Python scripts directory (for example
|Tip: If you do not have administrative privilege on your system, or for any reason you wish to avoid adding autobuild into system-level Python or command directories, you can use virtualenv, e.g.:
mkdir ~/virtualenvs # or any directory for your Python-package environments VENV=~/virtualenvs/autobuild virtualenv "$VENV" . "$VENV/bin/activate"
