II.2.2 Installation under Linux
ASEM-51 for Linux is available as a tar archive and
an rpm package.
If you have got the rpm package, login as root and simply type
rpm -i asem51-1.3-1.i386.rpm
The rpm package has been tested on S.u.S.E.-Linux only,
but should also work on other Linux distributions that meet the FHS
If you have got the tar archive, perform the following steps:
gzip -d asem51-1.3-ELF.tar.gz
tar xvf asem51-1.3-ELF.tar
If you are installing ASEM-51 as root (preferred), the
installation script install.sh will install the whole package
in /usr/local/share/asem-51/1.3, and establish some symbolic
links in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/man/man1.
If you are installing ASEM-51 under another user-id,
install.sh tries to install the software in your home directory
under ~/asem-51/1.3, and establish some symbolic links in
~/bin and ~/man/man1.
For details see the messages, install.sh is displaying on the
console, and do some fine-tuning accordingly:
If you haven't installed ASEM-51 as root, it may be necessary
to add ~/bin to your PATH, and
~/man to your MANPATH.
To specify a search path for the include files *.mcu provided,
you can define an optional environment variable ASEM51INC.
For this, bash, ksh, and sh users should insert the following lines into
their .profile file:
csh, tcsh, and zsh users should insert the following line into their
.login file respectively:
setenv ASEM51INC /usr/local/share/asem-51/1.3/mcu
If you have installed ASEM-51 in your home directory,
ASEM51INC should point to ~/asem-51/1.3/mcu

Note that you cannot reset your 8051 target system with a PC printer port,
if you haven't installed ASEM-51 as root!
(For details see the BOOT-51 documentation provided.)
If you have installed ASEM-51, but you don't like it, you can
easily uninstall it. If you have installed the rpm package, simply type
rpm -e asem51
If you have installed the generic tar archive, be sure to uninstall
ASEM-51 under the same user-id you previously
used for installation! Run
and that's it.
