Build Mercurial by issuing the following command:
To build the documentation (requires Docutils), issue:
To test the results, issue make check. The test suite takes a long time to complete and the results have no meaning to an end user.
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 = <user_name> <your@mail>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.
If you have installed the Certificate Authority
Certificates and you want Mercurial to use them, as the
install -v -d -m755 /etc/mercurial && cat > /etc/mercurial/hgrc << "EOF"
[web] cacerts = /etc/ssl/ca-bundle.crtEOF
