YADE Installation

  • YADE can be installed using the interactive installer GUI for Windows and Linux servers (with X-Servers).
  • YADE can be installed from the command line using an installer parameter file.

1. Requirements

  • Starting from release 1.9 an Oracle or openJDK Java Runtime Environment 1.8 or newer is required.
  • Starting from release 1.6.4043 an Oracle Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or newer is required.
  • Starting from release 1.3.7 an Oracle Java Runtime Environment 1.6 or newer is required.

2. Download YADE installer

  • Download the YADE Client and transfer it to the server. You could use wget to download YADE directly on that server.

3. Unzip the YADE installer

4. Prepare the installer parameter file

  • Change the installpath tag in the jade_client_install.xml file and set the absolute installation path according to where you want to install YADE.

5. Run the installer

  • It is strongly recommended that you are not logged in as root
  • It is not mandatory to install YADE with root permissions.
  • The setup.sh script has the option -u
    • If you use the option -u then the installer is started with the current user.
      In this case, you have to make sure that this user has sufficient write permissions to create the installation path.
    • If you don't use the option -u then the installer calls sudo to get root permissions. The current user has to be configured as sudoer.
      In this case the installation path is arbitrary.
Setup with option -u
Setup without option -u
