Download and installWe provide installation instructions for two releases: 1.9 (stable, target Ubuntu 10.04) and 2.0 (beta, target Ubuntu 12.04). The 2.0 relies on Celery, instead of MediaDART.
1.9 Stable Version
You are free to download, install and use Notre-DAM under the terms of the GPL v.3 license. However, you should spend a few minutes reading these notes. Notre-DAM is a web application and installing it requires installing:
- the Notre-DAM server
- a number of MediaDART nodes
- a shared storage.
Nodes are computers dedicated to resource processing. So, deploying many nodes improves the performance of operations like transcoding or resizing, in particular when they are executed on many resources at the same time.
If you would like to manage geographical coordinates, you should get a new Google Maps API key for your web site (freely available at http://code.google.com/apis/maps/signup.html). The new Google Key must be put in the configuration file of your application (settings.py in case of installation from source code, or config.py if you install Notre-DAM from packages).
There are several ways to install NotreDAM:
|Installation procedure||Description||Suitable for||Instructions|
|Single-machine installation||This is the minimal installation you can start with. It requires just one computer and you will be able at any time to add additional computers with extra mediaDART nodes.||evaluation (on Linux Ubuntu)|
|Multi-node installation||The multi-node installation provides a scalable environment with more processing power. It is therefore highly recommended when deploying a service based on Notre-DAM.
The multi-node installation requires at least two computers. Extra nodes can be added later on.
|evaluation and deployment|
|Virtual Box installation||This is a minimal installation on a virtual machine. You should use this if you don’t have a Linux/Ubuntu PC. You have to install VirtualBox on your computer and download the image for VirtualBox (which includes both the Notre-DAM server and one MediaDART node).||evaluation (on a computer running Mac OS or Windows)|
|Installation from source code repository||You can install the latest version of NotreDAM, checking out the trunk source files from the Google Code repository.||evaluation of the latest version, development|
|Installation from tarball||The installation from a tarball allows to install NotreDAM on a computer running any Linux distribution. The tarball includes all NotreDAM dependencies.||evaluation and deployment (on any Linux distribution)||NOT YET AVAILABLE|
