- If you have a firewall software installed on your computer, then you must configure the firewall to allow the ports that Galleon requires.
- Run the Windows executable version of Galleon which will launch the installation wizard. Follow the instructions in the installation tutorial. The installation wizard will install Galleon in "C:\Program Files\Galleon" by default. The wizard will also install the Galleon server as a Windows service. The Galleon configuration GUI will be added to the Start Menu under Galleon/Configure.
The following is the expected normal behaviour of the Galleon service:
- When the service starts, it will use more CPU and memory than normal.
- The initial CPU and memory usage will drop after a short period.
- When the Galleon apps perform tasks such as connecting to the internet or refreshing its database, the service will use more CPU and memory. After these tasks are completed, the CPU and memory will go down again.
- The more apps you have configured, the more memory Galleon will use.
- Galleon runs as a service under the local system account. This account is unable to access network shares for file storage. If you need to access shares, reconfigure the service in the Services control panel to run as a user account with network privileges.
- Run the Galleon server using the galleon script in the bin directory: './galleon start'
- Access the GUI by running the gui.sh script in the Galleon bin directory
Mac OS X
- Follow these instructions
After you have installed all of the neccessary software, follow the configuration instructions.
