== How to install MIRC-Zn on Ubuntu Linux ==
* Download the script
wget http://timphillips.net/mirc/install-MIRC-Zn
* Make it executable
chmod 777 ./install-MIRC-Zn
* Run the script
* Point your browser to the machine you just installed it on and MIRC should be up and running.
* This script will also upgrade a previous "Tim Phillips" installation of MIRC-Zn so it can be used again when the RSNA code is updated.
==What the script does==
* Checks you're running it as root or using sudo.
* Stops the MIRC-Zn service if its running.
* Checks which chipset you're running.
* Enables the ubuntu partner repo (to get Oracle Java).
* Answers the Java installation questions in advance.
* Installs SunJava and a few other necessary applications.
* Downloads the appropriate JAI ImageIO files installs JAI ImageIO.
* Downloads the latest version of MIRC-Zn.
* Writes an upstart script (so that CTP/MIRC will be run as a service automatically).
* Installs RSNA MIRC.
==Choosing between Ubuntu Desktop and Ubuntu Server==
* Ubuntu Desktop
** Easier (very easy) if you're new to Linux.
** May be very slightly slower but on modern hardware you are unlikely to notice the difference.
* Ubuntu Server
** Makes more sense - MIRC is a web service after all.
** Will be leaner and faster.
** Can run on a headless server or virtual machine.
** [http://turnkeylinux.org TurnkeyLinux] is a very good Ubuntu install for this purpose.
