CoinOR LiveCD

I created a “Coin OR Live CD” based on Ubuntu 10.04 that makes it easy to use a set of packages from the Coin OR projects.

This packaging includes:

  • Python 2.6, iPython and pylab
  • g++
  • CoinOR libraries
    • CoinUtils
    • PuLP
    • Dip
    • Dippy
  • Solvers
    • CBC
    • coinMP
    • GLPK
    • Gurobi 2.0.3 and 3.0.1

The live cd was prepared with Novo, do no hesitate to ask for the presets and process if you are interested in creating a variant.

The installation script has also been updated to use the release versions of the different projects, it works perfectly well under Ubuntu 10.04.

Installation script for CoinOR libraries

I created a small script to download, build and install some of the CoinOR libraries:

It has been tested under Ubuntu 10.04 and should work on any Debian-based Linux distribution.

To use it first download install_coinor.sh, you can edit the installation location by changing the default_install variable (default is /opt/coinor), then run it as a superuser (sudo sh install_coinor.sh).
