Following are procedures for installing GNUstep on different Operating Systems.


Contents

BSD-based systems

To keep this list as brief as possible, information about these systems can be found here.



HP/UX


Linux-based systems

To keep this list as brief as possible, information about these systems can be found here.


Solaris

Intel

Move over to http://www.blastwave.org/ or http://www.sunfreeware.com/ to download and install all required dependencies. (Personally, I recommend the packages from BlastWave which usually are quite up-to-date. Interestingly, they already offer GNUstep-make as a package.)

If you follow the installation instructions for GNUstep, you should not run into any problems.

However, if you want to select Window Maker from the X login, you need to do some additional editing. Check out http://www.gunfleet.com/solaris/winman.htm for that. The information about Window Maker found there basically also applies if you plan on using Azalea from Étoilé.

Sparc

GNUstep Solaris 10 U2 vmware appliance

  • Download sol u2 image, you need to have a Sun site account.
  • You can run this image in VMware server or vmware player 1.0.3.
  • Install Sun Studio 11 with latest patches.
  • Objective Compiler
    • compile your own
    • get it from blastwave using pkg-get.
  • download all the gnustep tar balls and follow build instruction.

OpenSolaris

This will be an add-on packages to OpenSolaris distributions using TWW tools to create sparc/intel packages in SVR4 formats. "pkg-inst gnustep-user-1.0 gnustep-developer-1.0 gnustep-apps-1.0" will install GNUstep user,developer and gnustep native applications. pkg-rm will perform the reverse of installation.

It will have a nice name like GNUstep O.S. (OpenSolaris).

Windows

There are many Unix Environment solutions for windows. Currently GNUstep is using MingW as its unix environment foundation for Windows.

MingW

See Installation on Windows for details on MingW setup. Also look at precompiled binary installer, available from GNUstep's ftp site.

Others
