We use the openSUSE Build Service to provide packages for openSUSE 12.2 until openSUSE 13.1. Add the repository first, e.g.:
$ sudo zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ufo-kit/openSUSE_12.2/ concert-repo
and update and install the packages. Note, that you have to install IPython on your own, if you intend to use the concert binary for execution:
$ sudo zypper update $ sudo zypper in python-concert
Install from PyPI¶
It is recommended to use pip for installing Concert. The fastest way to install it is from PyPI:
$ sudo pip install concert
This will install the latest stable version. If you prefer an earlier stable version, you can fetch a tarball and install with:
$ sudo pip install concert-x.y.z.tar.gz
If you haven’t have pip available, you can extract the tarball and install using the supplied setup.py script:
$ tar xfz concert-x.y.z.tar.gz $ cd concert-x.y.z $ sudo python setup.py install
More information on installing Concert using the setup.py script, can be found in the official Python documentation.
To install the Concert from the current source, follow the instructions given in the developer documentation.
Installing into a virtualenv¶
It is sometimes a good idea to install third-party Python modules independent of the system installation. This can be achieved easily using pip and virtualenv. When virtualenv is installed, create a new empty environment and activate that with
$ virtualenv my_new_environment $ . my_new_environment/bin/activate
Now, you can install Concert’s requirements and Concert itself
$ pip install -e path_to_concert/
As long as my_new_environment is active, you can use Concert.
