Step 1: Download, Configure, Compile, and Install NOX

Downloading and Unpacking NOX

If you have not already done so, you'll need to download NOX; see Downloads. You can download NOX as a standalone package or as part of Trilinos.

Note:
If you download it as part of Trilinos, you should follow the Trilinos instructions for configuring, compiling and installing.
To unpack NOX, type

gunzip -c nox-\<version\>.tar.gz | tar -xzvf -

This will create a directory named nox-<version> containing the source code for NOX. Rename this direction to nox; i.e.,

mv nox-\<version\> nox

Configuring NOX

Change directories to the nox directory:

cd nox

Run the configure script, which will create a Makefile customized to your machine.

./configure

There are many options that can be passed to the configure script, and they will be discussed as appropriate. For a full listing, see NOX Configuration Options.

Note:
If you have previously run the configure script and compiled the code, be sure to type "make clean" before re-running the configure script.

Compiling NOX

To compile NOX, simply type:
make

Installing NOX

To install NOX, type
make install

By default, NOX will be installed in /usr/local. If you prefer that it be installed in a different directory, that can be specified using the --prefix=PREFIX configuration option.

If you have problems...

If you have problems configuring and compiling NOX, please report them using Bugzilla; see Reporting Bugs and Making Enhancement Requests for more information.
