The easiest MIRC install ever. ''Updated to Z1''
 
  
====Important points====
 
* You need to use Ubuntu 10.04.x (Luicd) 32-bit (i386). Not 64-bit (amd64)
 
* Options:
 
** Official Ubuntu distro - http://ftp.iinet.net.au/pub/ubuntu-releases/10.04.2/ubuntu-10.04.2-server-i386.iso (or use a local mirror closer to you).
 
** Using a pre-built turnkey appliance can save some time - http://www.turnkeylinux.org/core
 
 
====First step:====
 
Install Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 32-bit on a virtual machine or a real computer.
 
 
====Commands====
 
''The following commands should be executed as root (or using sudo)''
 
  apt-get update
 
  apt-get -y install python-software-properties
 
  apt-add-repository 'deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner'
 
  apt-add-repository ppa:timothy-john-phillips/mirc
 
  apt-get update
 
  apt-get -y install mirc
 
 
You will be asked to agree to the terms and conditions of Sun Java and then to ImageIO. Agree to it all.
 
 
====Try it out====
 
Point a web browswer at the IP address of your Ubuntu machine and you should see your new MIRC site.
 
 
Administrator access:
 
* username = admin
 
* password = password
 
 
====Included features====
 
# Automatically starts at boot up and closes at shutdown.
 
#  JAI IO included.
 
# port 80 access (default web port)
 
 
====What happens behind the scenes====
 
# Installing the mirc-z1 package automatically installs two other packages
 
##  sun-java6-jre - this is the official Sun (Oracle) Java 1.6 JRE package, which lives in the partner repository.
 
##  jai-imageio-1.1 - this is a package I created to automate the installation of the Sun (Oracle) ImageIO libraries.
 
# the MIRC/CTP files are put into /usr/share/mirc/
 
# A linux bash script (CTP-start.sh) is installed in the /usr/share/mirc/ folder - this launches CTP/MIRC from whichever folder it is in.
 
# An Ubuntu Upstart script (mirc.conf) is installed in the /etc/init/ folder.
 
 
I've made these repositories to simplify the installation of MIRC on Linux. It eliminates the fiddling with Java Image IO tools.
 
I plan to update it with each release of MIRC Zx.
 
 
Hope this helps someone. Appreciate any feedback. - timothy.john.phillips@gmail.com
