Download the latest stable build of Freevo. To install all dependencies, please read the INSTALL file in the package for details. You should be familiar with Linux to do this. You can find the Freevo source code at
tar -zxvf freevo-1.5.0.tar.gz cd freevo-1.5.0 python setup.py install
Installation for Version 1.7.0
Get the files
(these are the current version numbers as of 2007-04-18. You should probably always try the latest versions)
being root, unpack and install each package as follows:
tar -zxvf kaa-base-0.1.3.tar.gz cd kaa-base-0.1.3 python setup.py install --record installed_files
after that, you have a file called installed_files in the kaa-base-0.1.3 directory which contains all files that were installed. This might come in handy if you want to remove the files later again.
Repeat the same process for all other files downloaded above (in the same order as above).
The setup scripts will complain if you need to install any other packages.
NOTE: If you are upgrading from a previous version of freevo, you will need to run the conver_config helper:
freevo convert_config .freevo/local_conf.py
This will print the conversions required. If you are happy with that, then the command again with a -w flag to make the changes:
freevo convert_config .freevo/local_conf.py -w
