The Disco source code is available at github. To get the latest development branch:
git clone git://github.com/discoproject/disco.git
For released versions, check out the appropriate release tag from the repository.
If compiling from source, you cannot use the zip or tar.gz packages generated by github, but must instead get the git repo using the above command.
You can generate Debian packages for Disco using the make-discoproject-debian script at the top of the source tree. This script builds the following packages: disco-master, disco-node and python-disco.
Install the disco-master package on your master node. If you run Disco in a cluster, you should install the disco-node package on the other nodes in the cluster. The python-disco package should be installed on all client machines from which Disco jobs are submitted.
After installation, see steps 4-6 in Setting up Disco that describe how to configure and test Disco.
Our Debian packages are experimental! They may not play nicely with other packages or they may destroy your computer.
