InstallingGRFromSource on Raspberry Pi
These instructions have been tested with the
Raspbian Buster with desktop and recommended software Operating System on a Raspberry Pi 3B+. A 32GB microSD card is recommended.
You may have some of these prerequisites already, but it doesn't hurt to get them again and check for the latest versions.
sudo apt update --allow-releaseinfo-change sudo apt upgrade sudo apt install git cmake g++ libboost-all-dev libgmp-dev swig python3-numpy \ python3-mako python3-sphinx python3-lxml doxygen libfftw3-dev \ libsdl1.2-dev libgsl-dev libqwt-qt5-dev libqt5opengl5-dev python3-pyqt5 \ liblog4cpp5-dev libzmq3-dev python3-yaml python3-click python3-click-plugins \ python3-zmq python3-scipy libpthread-stubs0-dev
Set up a swap file
A swap file will improve the compile time greatly.
sudo fallocate -l 2G /swapfile sudo chmod 600 /swapfile sudo mkswap /swapfile sudo swapon /swapfile
To make the swap file permanent, add this line to /etc/fstab
/swapfile none swap sw 0 0
The next steps will take two or more hours. Be patient. The terminal does show the progress.
