3.2 Installation

To install Cheetah in your system-wide Python library:

  1. Login as a user with privileges to install system-wide Python packages. On POSIX systems (AIX, Solaris, Linux, IRIX, etc.), the command is normally 'su root'. On non-POSIX systems such as Windows NT, login as an administrator.

  2. Run python setup.py install at the command prompt.

  3. The setup program will install the wrapper script cheetah to wherever it usually puts Python binaries ("/usr/bin/", "bin/" in the Python install directory, etc.)

Cheetah's installation is managed by Python's Distribution Utilities ('distutils'). There are many options for customization. Type ``python setup.py help'' for more information.

To install Cheetah in an alternate location - someplace outside Python's site-packages/ directory, use one of these options:

    python setup.py install --home /home/tavis 
    python setup.py install --install-lib /home/tavis/lib/python
Either way installs to /home/tavis/lib/python/Cheetah/ . Of course, /home/tavis/lib/python must be in your Python path in order for Python to find Cheetah.
