I have now built “all” on Odroid-U3 Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, yay! (thanks @Ross for your help).
I’ve Built MaidSafe, now what?
Run The Tests
In your build directory are several “test_???” executables. You can run these individually and enjoy the output ;-), or use “make ExperCommon” and all tests will be run and the results published to the public dashboard.
The are also one or two “benchmark_???” executables to try too.
Where Can I Find More Information?
You’ll find the documentation in different places for different needs (users, farmers, developers, application builders and so on). Once you have gained sufficient overview, you can drill down into the parts most relevant or interesting to you. The best starting points are MaidSafe.net Overview and Documents, because from there you can get to everything else.
Here’s a summary document map (as of July 2014):
MaidSafe.net Overview - several pages introducing Project Safe, features, applications, licensing and so on
MaidSafe.net Documents - the central starting point for all Project Safe documentation including:
– System Docs (MaidSafe.net)
– API Examples (MaidSafe.net)
– Developer Wiki (github - build instructions, code modules etc.)
– Papers & Publications (links to patent filings, papers and publications is included on the MaidSafe.net Documents page)
Project Safe white paper - a broad introduction and summary of all aspects of the project in one document
The first thing to try is probably the MaidSafe Examples (see above), starting by setting up a local test network on the machine.
Start A Local Test Network
To start a test network, in the build directory execute the command:
Follow the prompts, but you can accept the defaults first time round.
If it fails retry a few times and it should start.
