download

alternatives: releases, git clone git://sph.mn/sph-upcoming

unpack

unpack the downloaded archive

for example

tar -xf sph-upcoming.tgz

-x is for extract

-f is for the source file name

install

cd sph-upcoming
su root
./exe/install

in most cases the installer only copies files

the install script might have a "--help" option that lists more install options

test

the command "upcoming" should be available on the command-line

if not, does /usr/bin/upcoming exist? does /usr/bin/upcoming have execute and read filesystem permission?
