Minsky.1.D32.tar.gz


Has anyone installed the Minsky.1.D32.tar.gz ?


Minsky.1.D32.tar.gz http://sourceforge.net/projects/mins...urce=directory



Am considering trying it, if can figure out how best to install it from the tar.gz

Useful comments appreciated, particularly from anyone with it working in openSUSE :-)

BTW am not an Economist !

Minsky

System dynamics program with additional features for economics

Brought to you by: hpcoder

Minsky enables the simulation of models (particularly from economics) defined in terms of coupled ordinary differential equations. The models are defined using a drawing canvas (rather like VisSim), and a double entry bookkeeping system known as a Godley table.
Features

Graphical modelling environment
Godley table for entering financial flows
System ODE solver
Export of system as XML
Export of system as LaTeX



To use, apply or learn the Economics of the Minsky best read Prof Steve Keen, or view his YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/ProfSteveKeen

Or follow the SourceForge discussion http://sourceforge.net/p/minsky/disc...?source=navbar

Change to the directory it's in, then run:
Code:
tar xvf Minsky.1.D32.tar.gz
There will probably be README and INSTALL text files giving instructions. Follow them.

Thanks for response.


Advised from openSUSE forum so then found ~/Minsky.1.D32/Makefile

Quick searches showed linux not mentioned, only Windows and MacOS.


Posted in the SourceForge Minsky forum query for other linux users advice.



Code:
 make configure
ls: cannot access /home/paulparker/usr/ecolab/include/ecolab.h: No such file or directory
Makefile:33: /usr/local/ecolab/include/Makefile: No such file or directory
Makefile:116: tclmain.d: No such file or directory
Makefile:116: minskyTCL.d: No such file or directory
---deleted-the-rest---
Guess need decide where these should be...


oops... Text files formated as .tex

Will follow up to here, as/if proceed further.

(Also posted this on the SourceForge Minsky discussion page.)


Feedback received from a more technically competent person.

Concerns Minsky using current layout may be difficult to distribute and update using the YaST/zypper approaches for installation/update as used in Novell/openSUSE and similar systems.

Is Minsky being used, or experiencing similar difficulties, with other linux systems ?
