OpenAmeos >= 10.2

Starting with 10.2, OpenAmeos no longer requires Sybase on Linux. If you don't need multiuser access to your models, you can create your models using SQLite as storage backend instead.

In this case, if you choose not to configure a Sybase client during the installation process, none of the Example models and the profile model will presently be initialized (this option will be added to the installer in a later version). To use these models, start OpenAmeos and run System->Repository->Recover System Repository for any of the example models you're interested in. Choose SQLite as repository type. The uml_profile model should be recovered with SQLite in all cases, since it allows you to import profiles into any other models.

OpenAmeos <= 10.1 and Sybase

In order to tun OpenAmeos 10.1 and earlier on Linux, you need to have a pre-installed Sybase ASE Server. In case you had purchased Ameos on Linux in the past, you can use the Sybase Server which was installed with Ameos.

In case you don't have an existing Sybase installation, first download and install the free Sybase ASE Express Edition for Linux (see Installing Sybase ASE on Linux page for more information).

Once ASE Express is running:

  • download the Linux OpenAmeos archive archive and unpack
  • run the setup script install
  • during the installation, specify the location and server name of your Sybase installation (12.x or 15.x) (the default for ASE Express is /opt/sybase, the server name had to be specified during the ASE installation and is also stored in /opt/sybase/interfaces)
  • after the installation has finished, source the appropriate setup script as indicated in the final installer screen and start OpenAmeos by typing ameos
