The easiest MIRC install ever. Updated to T36 omega

1 Important points

2 First step:

Install Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid 32-bit on a virtual machine or a real computer.

3 Commands

The following commands should be executed as root (or using sudo)

  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 mirc36

You will be asked to agree to the terms and conditions of Sun Java. Agree to it all.

4 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 = admin

5 Included features

  1. Port 80 (default web port) rather than 8080
  2. Automatically starts at boot up and closes at shutdown.
  3. Java, JAI IO, and Tomcat all included.

I've made these repositories to simplify the installation of MIRC on Linux. It eliminates the fiddling with Java Image IO tools and Tomcat. I plan to update it with each release of MIRC.

Hope this helps someone. Appreciate any feedback. - timothy.john.phillips@gmail.com
