Obtaining ASPECT and initial configuration
Obtaining ASPECT and initial configuration#
The development version of ASPECT can be downloaded by executing the command
git clone https://github.com/geodynamics/aspect.git
$DEAL_II_DIR points to your deal.II
installation, you can configure ASPECT by
mkdir build; cd build; cmake ..
in the ASPECT directory created by the
git clone command above. If you did not set
$DEAL_II_DIR you have to
supply cmake with the location:
cmake -DDEAL_II_DIR=/u/username/deal-installed/ ..
This will create an “out-of-source” build, where the build
directory is different from the source directory. While in-source builds
(where you run
cmake . in your source directory) are supported, we strongly
recommend an out-of-source build as described above. Specifically, running the
whole test suite (see Running tests) is only
supported this way.
