Preparations

We will be using a virtual machine for the hands-on portions of the camp, so please follow these instructions to get the VM up and running on your laptop *before* you arrive. However, we will also have USB drives with the VM at the camp in case you are unable to get everything working ahead of time.

NOTE: The VM uses 2GB of RAM, so you will need a laptop with at least 4GB of RAM to run it. Depending on your laptop manufacturer, you may also need to enable virtualization in the BIOS.

Windows users: You will need access to the SSH and cURL commands on the command line. If you don’t already have these available to you, please download GitHub Desktop (https://desktop.github.com) and use the included Git Shell application when asked to enter commands in a terminal window in the following instructions.

1. Download and install VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads
2. Download and install Vagrant: http://www.vagrantup.com/downloads.html
3. Open a terminal window and issue the following commands:

mkdir tutorial
cd tutorial
wget http://camp.curationexperts.com/Vagrantfile
vagrant up
vagrant ssh
# vagrant ssh gives you a new prompt: vagrant@camper:~$
cd hyrax-sample/
fcrepo_wrapper

4. Navigate to http://localhost:8984 in your web browser to access Fedora
5. Go back to your terminal window and enter the command: exit
6. Enter the command: vagrant halt

Your VM should now be turned off. You can turn it on again with the ‘vagrant up’ command.

Wifi

OWL and Eduroam are available, as well as a free network call 'the cloud'. Participants should select ‘the cloud’ from the available wifi networks and instructions will appear on how to log on.
