SUMO installation in linux (Debian/Ubuntu/Mint)

SUMO-Simulation of Urban MobilitySUMO an open source, portal, microscopic, multi-modal road traffic simulation.It allows for intermodal simulation including pedestrians and comes with a large set of tools for scenario creation. It allows to simulate as to how a given traffic demand which consists of single vehicles moves through a given road network.The simulator allows to address a large set of traffic management topics.It is purely microscopic: each vehicle is modeled explicitly, has an own route, and moves individually through the network.SUMO Installation Procedure:Installation in Linux and mac OSStep I: Install two pre-requisite packages to build SUMO with GUI. Go to terminal and run:$ sudo apt-get install libgdal1-dev proj libxerces-c2-dev $ sudo apt-get install libfox-1.6-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu1-mesa-dev Step II: If you are using Unbuntu 12.04 or older versions, as it doesn't ship with libgdal package, create a symbolic link:$ sudo ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/li…

how to know whether my linux system is 32 bit or 64 bit ?

Generally, during any software installation, one gets puzzled regarding the system architecture i.e., whether the PC/desktop is 32 bit or 64 bit build...

Simplest way to know is here.

Step1: Open the terminal.

Step 2: type uname -a
Result for 32-bit Ubuntu: Linux discworld 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386GNU/Linux whereas the 64-bit Ubuntu will show: Linux discworld 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64x86_64 GNU/Linux
Identify whether it is i386 or x86_64; correspondingly it is 32 bit or 64 bit build architecture, respectively.

Note: There are many other alternative ways in Linux, to determine the system architecture; but, this is probably the simplest way.
