Make sure you have python3-dialog installed on your system using apt-get install python3-dialog or dnf install python3-dialog.
In the gpvdm directory run ./build, in the gpvdm root directory and you should get a screen looking like this:
Select (packages) and you should get a menu looking like this:
Select your OS, and the build system will install the packages you need to compile/run gpvdm. Once this is done navigate back to the main menu.
Now select (build), and select the OS/platform you want to build gpvdm for. The build system shoud compile the binary for you.
If you want to you can now select instal from the main menu, and gpvdm will be installed on your system.
Installing using a deb/rpm
If you want you can install gpvdm from a deb/rpm package. The drawback of doing the install this way is that, I don't release the deb/rpm packages very often. This means the deb/rpm versions are often up to a year behind the source code/ windows exe. If you would like me to release an updated rpm/deb package, just drop me an e-mail.
If you experience technical problems using gpvdm (i.e. it won't install etc..) please leave a message for me on github here. Or if you prefer drop me an e-mail. I'm very happy to provide help in using gpvdm. There are also a few how to videos dotted around the gpvdm web page that will show you the basics. On the other hand if running simulations is not your thing, I am also more than happy to collaborate with you on modeling data.
