After building Erlang/OTP, do "make release". Then you will
have to run the Install script. On my Linux system the
commands would be:

make release
cd release/x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
./Install `pwd`

When running the tests, started the released Erlang/OTP
system like this:


(Then do ts:install(), ts:run() etc as in the instruction.)

It is not mentioned because there are only a few test cases
that must be run in an installed system.
