reclass has been packaged for Debian. To use it, just install it with APT:
$ apt-get install reclass [reclass-doc]
$ yaourt -S reclass
$ tar xvzf reclass-git.tar.gz $ cd reclass-git; makepkg $ sudo pacman -U reclass-git-<git-commit-hash>.tar.gz
Developers of other distributions are cordially invited to package reclass themselves and write to the mailing list to have details included here. Or send a patch!
reclass is currently maintained on Github, so to obtain the source, run:
$ git clone https://github.com/madduck/reclass.git
$ git clone ssh://email@example.com:madduck/reclass.git
If you want a tarball, please obtain it from the Debian archive.
Before you can use reclass, you need to install it into a place where Python can find it. The following step should install the package to /usr/local:
$ python setup.py install
If you want to install to a different location, use –prefix like so:
$ python setup.py install --prefix=/opt/local
Just make sure that the destination is in the Python module search path, which you can check like this:
$ python -c 'import sys; print sys.path'
More options can be found in the output of
$ python setup.py install --help $ python setup.py --help $ python setup.py --help-commands $ python setup.py --help [cmd]
If you just want to run reclass from source, e.g. because you are going to be making and testing changes, install it in “development mode”:
$ python setup.py develop
To uninstall (the rm call is necessary due to a bug in setuptools):
$ python setup.py develop --uninstall $ rm /usr/local/bin/reclass*
Uninstallation currently isn’t possible for packages installed to /usr/local as per the above method, unfortunately. The following should do:
$ rm -r /usr/local/lib/python*/dist-packages/reclass* /usr/local/bin/reclass*
