Official downloads and instructions

instal lc0 on ubutu 19.10 - my method for 0.23 & 0.24.1;hl=Cuda
Bold = terminal commands
Italics = terminal output (response)


sudo apt update          
apt list --upgradable    
sudo apt upgrade -y
sudo apt autoremove

-Instal libopenblas-dev (since I did not do before), for cpu/blas version:

sudo apt-get install -y libopenblas-dev

Renamed old (0.24.1) lc0 folder to lc0.0.24.1--okay and moved to new folder Pre-trash.
--To ignore building a .git versioning on my machine.

-Download using git:

git clone -b release/0.25 --recurse-submodules

--New lc0 folder now in Home *.

-New for 0.25.1 :

sudo apt install python3-pip

-New for 0.25.1 :

pip3 install meson --user
Requirement already satisfied: meson in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (0.51.2)

-Change directory to new lc0 folder in Home * :

cd lc0

-g++ 7 already installed for 0.24.1, execute build command with Cuda 10 fix (leaving Ubuntu default gcc 9, is >= 8)
--note that the official instructions mean the below about g++7:

CC=clang-6.0 CXX=clang++-6.0 INSTALL_PREFIX=~/.local ./ -Dnvcc_ccbin=g++-7 ERROR: Meson version is 0.51.2 but project requires >=0.52

-So I downloaded the below .deb file <<**, right-clicked its icon in Downloads, selected Open with Software Installer.

--Next Ubuntu Meson (Focal Fossa=Ubuntu 20.04, Eoan Ermine= my 19.10)
The Focal Fossa (current stable release)

meson_0.53.2-2ubuntu2_all.deb (367.1 KiB)   <<**

- Then re-ran the build command:

CC=clang-6.0 CXX=clang++-6.0 INSTALL_PREFIX=~/.local ./ -Dnvcc_ccbin=g++-7

-I ran the new lc0 (a net in the folder previously) :

cd .local/bin

The alternative for me was to upgrade my Ubuntu 19.10 to the current 20.04 to get Ubuntu's latest Meson.

However I had followed the official Lc0's "... If you don't know what to do, only install cuda-10-0. ..." but Ubuntu did not like that.

If I upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 (instead of just the Meson above) I would have had to start over with Cuda etc. (all of ) because Ubuntu first wanted to remove it.

So I cancelled the upgrade and did the above instead.
