Setting up the Yeti: A Quick Start Guide in Four Steps (and a few sub-steps)

  1. Get the YETIcode archive:
    1. Option A: See way above for download link and unpack the archive to your ~/yeti folder.
    2. Option B: Get YETI through svn at SourceForge:
      1. svn checkout svn://
  2. Initialize the YETI support:
    1. If you're running on Windows with msys, ensure the msys bin directory is in your path, e.g.:  export PATH=/bin:$PATH
    2. bash ~/yeti/scripts/core/
  3. Hook up the yeti scripts: (enter the text lines verbatim)
    1. Option A: Activate yeti automatically on shell startup (please do not do this for root):
      vi ~/.bashrc
      :r ~/yeti/scripts/examples/bashrc_user
    2. Option B: Turn yeti on only when the yetime alias is invoked (it's okay for root to have this):
      vi ~/.bashrc
      :r ~/yeti/scripts/examples/bashrc_root

  4. Restart your shell environment (exit the bash prompt):
    1. Once you log out and log back in, the updated aliases and variables in the yeti startup scripts should be in effect.
    2. If you chose approach 3.2 above, then entering the command "yetime" will enable all the aliases.
