Build Mercurial by issuing the following command:
To build the documentation (requires Docutils), issue:
To run the test suite, issue:
rm -rf tests/tmp && TESTFLAGS="-j
<N>--tmpdir tmp --blacklist blacklists/failed-tests" \ make check
<N> is an
integer between one and the number of ( processor X threads ),
Install Mercurial by running the
following command (as
make PREFIX=/usr install-bin
If you built the documentation, install it by running the following
make PREFIX=/usr install-doc
After installed, two very quick and simple tests should run correctly. First one needs some configuration:
cat >> ~/.hgrc << "EOF"
[ui] username =EOF
where you must replace <user_name> and <your@mail> (mail is optional and can be omitted). With the user identity defined, run hg debuginstall and several lines will be displayed, the last one reading "no problems detected". Another quick and simple test is just hg, which should output basic commands that can be used with hg.
The great majority of extensions are disabled by default. Run hg help extensions if you need to enable any, e.g. when investigating test failures. You will obtain the lists of enabled and disabled extensions, and more information, such as how to enable or disable them using configuration files.
If you have installed the Certificate Authority
Certificates and want Mercurial to use them, as the
root user, issue:
install -v -d -m755 /etc/mercurial && cat >> /etc/mercurial/hgrc << "EOF"
[web] cacerts = /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crtEOF
