The following is the current (as of December 27, 2006) list of direct dependencies for GNUstep.

Note :

  • some of these dependencies are dependent of each other (e.g. tiff requires jpeg, and libungif requires freetype2)
  • each of these dependencies may require additional libraries, which are not listed here
  • the given names may not accurately reflect the actual package name as provided by your system


Contents

GNUstep-make

Required

Optional

  • gdb -- for debugging
  • Window Maker -- this would install a lot of dependencies beforehand


GNUstep-base

Required http://www.avahi.org/

Recommended development kit dependencies

  • libxml2-dev (xml2) -- for XML-based property-lists
  • libxslt1-dev (xslt) -- for style sheet support for use with XML
  • libgnutls-dev (gnutls) -- for Transport Layer Security (TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0) On Ubuntu and debian this will automatically pull in libgcrypt11-dev, liggpg-error-dev, and libtasn1-3-dev

The recommended and optional development kit packages in Debian and Ubuntu will pull in the compiled libraries for you as a dependancy. Selecting only the run-time library will generate a configure warning. If you continue with 'make', then the noted library functionalities will be missing in your final executable.

The remaining references give only the typical library name.

Optional

  • libiconv -- Unicode support, only install if not provided by your system. Note the GNU 'C' library (libc6-dev) provides the required functionality on all recent GNU/Linux systems
  • libgmp -- arbitrary precision arithmetic -run 'make check' if building yourself to assure you are getting appropriate results.
  • libgnutls -- provides Transport Layer Security -- TLS 1.0 and SSL 3.0 protocols (libgnutls-dev)
  • libbfd -- universal "Binary File Descriptor" library, part of GNU binutils
  • mDNSResponder -- for Bonjour service discovery, as implemented by NSNetServices and NSNetServiceBrowser Search for libavahi under Ubuntu and Debian for the equivalent. See http://www.avahi.org/ for additional details.

Selecting libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev in Ubuntu or debian will automatically add libavahi-client-dev, libavahi-common-dev,libdbus-1-dev development kits.

GNUstep-gui

Required

  • GNUstep-base
  • tiff -- Tag Image File Format (TIFF) support for image data

In Ubuntu and Debian the development kit libtiff4-dev automatically pulls in libjpeg62-dev and libtiffxx0c2.
