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

Take a look at the required and recommended dependencies. Most of these can be found at BlastWave (which I personally recommend) or Sun Freeware. The notable exception are ffcall/libffi, Bonjour and portaudio (as of 2008-05-23).

If you plan on compiling those from source, make sure to enable the creation of SHARED libraries. Bonjour and ffcall compile right out of the box. For portaudio to compile, you will need to grab a daily-snapshot and you need to install Open Sound System headers.

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

Intel

Intentionally left blank.

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).


Darwin

Two issues differentiate Darwin from its FreeBSD cousin.

  1. Darwin uses the Apple Objective-C runtime, not the GNU version
  2. Darwin uses the Apple version of GCC, not the GNU version

It is recommended to compile GNUstep with the GNU version of GCC, not Apple's version. (See the file README.Darwin for more info. Furthermore, since Darwin includes Apple's runtime, you must decide which to use at compile time. For more information, see Library combos.

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
