Installing Qbox

The Qbox distribution can be downloaded as a tar file from http://www.qboxcode.org/download

Example Makefiles are available in the build/ directory of the distribution.

The Qbox distribution is also available from the Qbox GitLab server using:

$ git clone http://scherzo.ucdavis.edu/qbox/qbox-public.git

Installation steps

  1. Unpack the Qbox tar file:

    $ tar zxf qb-1.64.0.tgz
    
  2. Identify a file in the build directory that is closest to your platform (e.g. centos7.mk) and create a copy <myplatform>.mk where <myplatform> is any name that identifies the current platform:

    $ cd rel1_64_0/src
    $ cp ../build/centos7.mk <myplatform>.mk
    
  3. Edit the file <myplatform>.mk to customize for the current platform:

    $ vi <myplatform.mk>
    
  4. Compile:

    $ export TARGET=<myplatform>
    $ make
    

The Qbox executable is rel1_64_0/src/qb.
