Software Requirements - Linux
We support our software only on the Fedora and Debian Linux platforms.
Java Programs require a large amount of memory to run. If you want to run more than one of Submit, Fitch, and Boole simultaneously, you will need at least 32MB of RAM with virtual memory turned on.
To submit files to the Grade Grinder using the Submit application, your computer must have access to the Internet. If you are using a computer at a college or university, the computer is probably connected to the campus network and thus to the Internet. If you are using a computer at home, you will have to connect first to your Internet Service Provider. The rule of thumb is that if your browser can access the World Wide Web, then Submit should be able to find the Grade Grinder.
The LPL software can be run directly off of the CD-ROM included in the package. However, if you are working on your own computer, you should install the software on your computer's hard disk, because it will run faster. The CD-ROM contains instructions explaining how to do this in the ReadMe file.
For your convenience, we have made the Software Manual available online, divided into sections. Select the application you want help with.
