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)
* You can download this at ftp://ftp.iinet.net.au/pub/ubuntu-releases/lucid/ubuntu-10.04.1-server-i386.iso, or you can use a local mirror closer to you.
====First step:====
Install Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 32-bit on a virtual machine or a real computer.
''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-z1-tjp1
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
