Coda File System Installation HowTo

Note: Coda File System ( is a general purpose distributed file system, a free software developed at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, USA. It may already be present on your computer or not. We provide an installer (links to the right) for your convenience, but you also may choose to download a differently packaged Coda client from the developers site above.

The following HowTo assumes an installer provided by us.

The downloaded file needs to be marked as executable, e.g. by the following command:
chmod +x filename

All of the following must be done as a superuser (root).

Run the file as follows:
then follow the dialogue.
The installer allocates 1.2GB disk space for the local cache by default.

You may also run
./filename help
to become more acquainted with the installer.

Note that file system installation is quite technical in nature, so you may need some help, especially for ensuring that the installed Coda client is run at the system start. The following commands suit a Debian system, other distributions need different actions:
ln -s /bin/codaclient /etc/init.d
update-rc.d codaclient defaults

To start the newly installed Coda file system support use the command
codaclient start

Now you can proceed with [setting up Dapty Software Environment].
