When running on Windows, Moshell uses a unix emulator known as Cygwin.
Go directly to step 13 if you have already installed and configured cygwin previously.
1- Go to the website www.cygwin.com
2- Click on "Install Now"
3- Save the 'setup-x86.exe' file, then execute it.
4- Choose "Install from internet", then click Next.
5- Root Directory "C:/cygwin" (It is not recommended to choose a different directory, especially if it contains spaces).
IMPORTANT: "Default Text File Type" should be set to UNIX (NOT DOS !!! otherwise ftp transfers get corrupted). Then click Next.
6- Select Internet Connection: put the proxy settings or select "use IE settings". Then click Next.
7- Choose a Download Site. The site http://sourceware.mirrors.tds.net is recommended.
8- Select Packages: Add the following packages:
- under "Archive", select "zip" and "unzip"
- under "Interpreters", select "perl"
- under net, select "inetutils", "openssh", "openssl"
- under shells, select "rxvt"
- under "Editors" select "vim" (optional)
9- Click Next. Install will start. Wait for installation to complete.
10- Download the file 'http://utran01.au.ao.ericsson.se/moshell/cygwin_install.txt' to C:/Cygwin .
11- Click on Start --> Run. In the "Run" window, type:
c:/cygwin/bin/perl c:/cygwin/cygwin_install.txt , then press "enter" .
This will create the following files:
If those files already exist, they are automatically moved to the folder c:/cygwin/tmp/installbackup.
12- Open a cygwin terminal window by double-clicking on the cygwin icon in the start menu or on the file c:/cygwin/cygwin.bat.
The window should be black with white text and the prompt should like this: [~]$
If not, then go through all the steps again and make sure you haven't missed out anything.
13- Moshell installation:
- Download the moshellxxx.zip file from Moshell Home to c:/cygwin/home/zawhtet
- Open the cygwin shell and run the following commands:
#unzip -o moshellxxx.zip
The first prompt asks for the type of installation:
0) Full Version
Click here for information about the restricted versions.
When prompted to enter the directory where you want to install moshell, it is recommended to specify your HOME directory ( ~ ).
If a previous moshell installation already exists, it is recommended to install in the same directory as the old one. This way, all your custom files (jar/xml files, site files, etc.) get copied across to the new revision and the old revision gets moved to a different location so you can still access it if needed. When prompted to enter the java directory, choose /cygdrive/c/Progra~1/javasoft/jre/whichEverVersion/bin/java or /cygdrive/c/WINNT/system32/java
14- Running moshell for the first time:
If you have set the PATH variable correctly in your '~/.bashrc' file, you should be able to run moshell from any directory. E.g:
If this is the first time moshell is installed on this PC, then it will download a number of jar files from the node.
No progress indicator will be shown so just be patient as it will take a few minutes.
Progress can be seen by doing "ls -l" in the commonjars and jarxml directories.
