Install Linux / Mac OS X Binary

  1. Extract archive file into suitable install location, e.g. /home/username.  If you have root access, you may extract archive file in a shared directory, e.g. /usr/local.
    $ cd /path/to/Dakota/install/directory
    $ tar xzvf /path/to/Dakota-release.platform.tar.gz
  2. Rename the extracted Dakota binary executable directory:
    $ ls
    dakota-release.platform
    $ mv dakota-release.platform Dakota
  3. Set up your platform environment to access the Dakota executable, libraries, and tests.
