At the desktop, start a terminal window. On the Dash home, search for terminal. Click on the icon with caption terminal
Execute the following two commands in the terminal window:
The first command gets the installer and the second one starts the Amahi install. The install script will ask for two things
This part may take about 5 to 10 minutes on a recent system, much more on older ones
The time it takes depends on the speed of your PC and your internet connection
The system may pop up one or two windows asking you to update and/or check for updates manually. This is left up to you. Amahi does not recommend aggressively updating unless you are an expert Linux user.
Once the installation is completed the installer will ask you to reboot
Rebooting will change the IP address of your system to the address you gave in your Amahi control panel
Only the first ethernet card
eth0 is supported out of the box. See other options
After rebooting, your Amahi HDA (Home Digital Assistant), should be fully working. Now it’s time to set it up. When the system gets to the desktop, there are two links with Amahi logos on them. Click on the Dashboard one. Firefox should come up.
Firefox should come up with
http://hda and ask you to login.
Use the user credentials you created while installing Ubuntu, not your Amahi web site login
The first login is special. The first user will be set up at this point, by asking to reset the password.
At this point the system should be set up and fully operational.
To access your HDA from a remote system, things will only work if you have your DNS pointing to the Amahi system as otherwise your system cannot resolve the name “hda”.
If your HDA appears to work well, you may optionally turn off the DHCP server in your router/gateway and reboot all clients in your network, so that they get their IP from your HDA.
Start setting up your users, your shares, install some apps from
http://hda and enjoy!!
