We have moved the repository! is is now living at https://github.com/amusecode/amuse.
The svn account is still up, but it is now in "read-only" mode, so new commits will fail (it will keep asking for your password).
There will be a tutorial and hands-on session at the 3rd Annual CHARM meeting in Brussels.
This script can be used to start the tutorial in the ULB computer room: amuse-tutorial
Additional here is a third exercise for people that participated in the Comsocomp-CHARM school on radiative transfer.
A new virtual machine/ USB image is available. It is based on the binary release.
Installing all the necessary prerequisites, configuring and building AMUSE is not always straight forward. In order to be able to try out AMUSE if you are on a machine that does not support the prerequisites we have created an disk image ("Appliance") with a fully AMUSE ready desktop system.
This may be the easiest way of getting AMUSE. Just download and extract the raw image to copy to a USB stick or harddrive(*), or download the vmdk image for Virtualbox or Vmware. Note that it is based on a 64 bit OS.
We do not know if this a good way to distribute AMUSE, so if you find this useful let us know!

(* example dd command: dd if=myappliance.raw of=/dev/sdx bs=4k replace /dev/sdx by the device you want to copy to. Note that this is destructive! Do not do this unless you know what you are doing.)
