This wiki page describes steps to build and install ParaView with Catalyst on the Grid'5000 testbed[1]. OSMesa is the OpenGL implementation.

Build Configuration

The build configuration is the similar to [2] and [3]

In an effort to ensure reproduciblility, Kameleon's Grid5000's community tool [4] is used. Level of reproducibility:

- Base image
 - all the software are built and installed on a debian-8 jessie image 
  - Grid'5000 offers reproducible  base images (configuration script available here [5])
  - Grid'5000 allows the deployment of complete file systems as images 
- Recipe
 - kameleon recipe available here [6]
  - Software installed used apt-get is reproducible as far as the the apt-get source list is not changed
- Usage
 - the new built image (with paraview installed) can be deployed to run experiments on or as a base image to further Kameleon recipes

Build And Install

To build the image follow the steps described in kameleon's official documentation [7] and [8].
