1 - Extract the zip file into a folder, and move to this folder.

2 - *if you don't have have the directory /usr/local/bin, create it
HTML:
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
For 32bits: copy the file "multics.x32" to /usr/local/bin
HTML:
cp multics.x32 /usr/local/bin/multics
*For 64bits: copy the file "multics.x64" to /usr/local/bin
HTML:
cp multics.x64 /usr/local/bin/multics
HTML:
Once the file has been copied across your need to change the file propriety to be an executable
HTML:
chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/multics
4 - from where you first copied the install files locate the file "multics.cfg" and copy it to /var/etc
HTML:
cp multics.cfg /var/etc
After installation edit your config which we will cover in subsequent posts and to get MultiCs running you need to execute the next command:
HTML:
./multics -b
Also if you want or need to read debug info then use this execute:
HTML:
./multics -b -v
Please remember you need to be in the same directory as multics to run the execute commands so for reference again run the execute from within
HTML:
/usr/local/bin
