==SWAT2 on Debian Squeeze AMD64 using a Samba4 install from GIT==
*Note: This procedure needs lots of testing and tweaking in order to provide a fully-functional SWAT2 web interface.
Here are the steps I went through on a Debian Squeeze AMD64 machine to achieve a workable setup....
$ wget http://cloud.github.com/downloads/rvelhote/GSoC-SWAT/swat-git-scripts.tar.gz
$ gunzip swat-git-scripts.tar.gz
$ tar -xvf swat-git-scripts.tar
$ cd ./fromgit
Because the GIT repository is not up-to-date with this file, edit the file ./install and change line 10 to:
git clone git://git.samba.org/jelmer/swat.git swat
Now it will retrieve the latest updates.
$ ./install
$ source swatdevenv/bin/activate
$ easy_install pip
$ pip install WebOb==1.0.8
$ pip install authkit
Make sure Samba4 is cloned from the GIT repo, tested with quicktest, configured, made, installed, and properly configured as according to the [[Samba4/HOWTO]]. '''Note: Your path for the python packages may differ according to how you installed Samba4 and what version of Python you have.'''
$ cd ./swatdevenv/lib/python2.6/site-packages/
$ for i in /usr/local/samba/lib/python2.6/site-packages/*; do ln -s $i; done
$ cd ../../../..
Make sure Samba4 is provisioned and running as according to the [[Samba4/HOWTO]].
$ ./run
Now you can go to to access SWAT2.
