Help and tutorials for installation on specific systems:
BIRCH install process
Example: screenshots of BIRCH install
was originally designed for Unix systems with hundreds of
users. Simply install BIRCH as above on ONE account,
preferably an account specifically created for BIRCH (eg.
userid=birch). Make the BIRCH home directory
world-readable/searchable. The rest of BIRCH is
automatically world-readable/searchable. This way all
users on the system can use a central copy of BIRCH. A
multiuser install assumes either that all home directories
are mounted on a central filesystem, or that file-sharing
exists, as on a MacOSX system.
Users set up their accounts to use the central copy of BIRCH by running the newuser script. A tutorial describing the setup process can be found here. Since each site is a bit different, you would want to edit the local copy of the setup tutorial (found in $BIRCH/local/public_html to correspond to your local system. Setup tutorials are provided for GNOME, Sun Java Desktop and KDE.
