A short (4:22) video demonstrating these instructions is here.

If you are running certain versions of Windows 10, you should be able create an Ubuntu virtual machine following these instructions.

Open the GemStone/S 64 Bit product page, click on the link for the current version, and copy the link location for the Linux download (we will use it shortly). Close or minimize the web browser.

Open a terminal in your Ubuntu environment and enter the following commands:

# set up directory structure
sudo mkdir /opt/gemstone
sudo chown $USER /opt/gemstone
cd /opt/gemstone
mkdir data etc locks log

# download GemStone/S product and copy files
wget [paste the product link copied above]
unzip *.zip
rm *.zip
ln -s Gem* product
cp product/bin/extent0.dbf data
chmod +w data/extent0.dbf
cp product/data/system.conf etc
cp product/sys/community.starter.key etc/gemstone.key

# update services file
sudo sh -c 'echo "
gs64ldi 50377/tcp # GemStone/S 64 Bit" >> /etc/services'

# create stone config file
echo "DBF_EXTENT_NAMES = /opt/gemstone/data/extent0.dbf;
STN_TRAN_LOG_DIRECTORIES = /opt/gemstone/data/;
KEYFILE = /opt/gemstone/etc/gemstone.key;
SHR_PAGE_CACHE_SIZE_KB = 100MB;
" > etc/gs64stone.conf

# set up environment variables and command aliases
echo "
export GEMSTONE=/opt/gemstone/product
export PATH=\$GEMSTONE/bin:\$PATH
alias gsStart='startnetldi -a $USER -g \
    -l /opt/gemstone/log/gs64ldi.log gs64ldi
startstone -e /opt/gemstone/etc/gs64stone.conf \
    -l /opt/gemstone/log/gs64stone.log'
alias gsStop='stopstone gs64stone DataCurator swordfish
stopnetldi'" >> ~/.profile
source ~/.profile

# start GemStone
gsStart

# test local connection with Topaz
topaz
set user DataCurator pass swordfish gems gs64stone

logout
exit

# when all done testing stop GemStone
gsStop

To test a connection with Jade, open a browser on the Releases page, download and unzip Jade.zip, and then launch Jade. Select the appropriate GemStone/S server version (e.g., 3.5.2), enter the IP address of the server, and the service name or port number for the NetLDI service (typically 50377), and click Login.
