Lab 1 Setup: Linux/Unix

A. Setup

Setting up Linux for 61B is super easy, all you have to do is use your package manager (apt-get, yum, etc) to install the Java 9 JDK, python3, and git.

Installing Java with apt-get is a little weird (see this post):

sudo apt-get -o Dpkg::Options::="--force-overwrite" install openjdk-9-jdk

To install python3:

sudo apt-get install python3

To install git:

sudo apt-get install git

By contrast, look at what those poor folks using Windows have to do!
