For Debian-like systems, RUMD can be installed as a package. Use the following repository entries appended to /etc/apt/sources.list or in a file in /etc/apt/sources.d/
deb jessie main
deb-src jessie main
To install RUMD simply use an equivalent of:
apt-get install rumd rumd-doc python-rumd
You need to have root privileges, of course.

You can also build the package from the source. To do so, download the source code from the RUMD homepage
and unpack the file using
tar xzvf rumd-X.X.X.tar.gz
where X.X.X is the version number. Enter the source directory
cd rumd-X.X.X
and build the package by typing
To test your installation use
make test
This test will take approximately 5-10 minutes.

Notice, you cannot type make install since the default path is different from system to system. We will refer to the installation path as <RUMD-HOME>
