There are multiple ways to install and use Archivematica 0.7-alpha. Once installed, consult the documentation for user instructions.


Virtual appliance

1. What is a virtual appliance?

2. Download your preferred virtual appliance format (sha256,md5sum):

3. If you don't already have a virtual machine player, we recommend VirtualBox. See these Virtual appliance instructions on how to load your Archivematica virtual appliance using VirtualBox.

Ubuntu Repository Package

We provide stable and unstable ubuntu packages. These are available in our launchpad ppa. You can find our archivematica/Xubuntu Virtual Appliance with these packages installed and configured above.

If installing from packages a fresh Xubuntu install is required.

Download Xubuntu 10.04

(tested on x86. however 64-bit packages are available, testers welcome!)

add the archivematica PPAs:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/release
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:archivematica/externals

install archivematica-shotgun(remember your mysql password):

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install archivematica-shotgun

run will be asked for your mysql password[the mcp db exists error is ignorable]):

sudo /usr/share/archivematica/vm-includes/

On a machine running Thunar (xubuntu 10.04). Run this to include the right click scripts.
