gEDA

GNU Electronic Design Automation
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Installation instructions 

Please see the end of this file for platform / vendor specific hints and 
tips.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Quick Ref:

% ./configure 
% make 
% make install

In order to build gschem you must install the following packages first:

	GLIB 1.2.x
	GTK+ 1.2.x
	LibStroke 0.3 (optional)
	libgdgeda 1.5 (optional)  (you also need zlib for libgdgeda)
	libgeda
	symbols

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
More detailed info:


  First run the configure script in the toplevel directory of gnetlist:
	
		./configure		(This should guess everything right)
					(e-mail me if it doesn't)	
		make all

  Run: configure --help for more options (such as overriding the default
  prefix).

  You can specify the location (full path including the gtk-config) of 
  gtk-config (which is required to build gschem) by using the
  --with-gtk-config flag.  Example:

		./configure --with-gtk-config=/home/user/bin/gtk-config

  This is handy if gtk-config isn't in your PATH or in some other system
  directory.  

  You can specify where rc files are installed by using the --with-rcdir=path
  when you run ./configure.  This is useful to package maintainers who would
  like to override where gschem and friends search for the rc files.

- To install gnetlist into the prefix dir (and subdirs) type:

		make install

  in gschem's top level directory


gEDA uses GNU Libtool in order to build shared libraries on a
variety of systems. While this is very nice for making usable
binaries, it can be a pain when trying to debug a program. For that
reason, compilation of shared libraries can be turned off by
specifying the `--disable-shared' option to `configure'.

The configure script should figure out most system dependant things, but at
this point I'm either not taking into account what configure figures out or 
I have missed some system dependance.  So please e-mail me at: 
ahvezda@geda.seul.org

- Uninstall

  To uninstall a previous version (or the current version) of gEDA type:

	make uninstall

  in the top level gEDA source directory.  This will remove installed files 
  which belong to gEDA.


Platform / Vendor specific tips and hints
------------------------------------------

- libc5 (SuSE) 

	If you get the following error message:

	 "link: '-L' cannot specify a relative directory"

  There is a problem with readline and guile.  Please hide (rename) 
  libreadline.so.* (move it out of wherever it is installed) and rebuild
  guile again.  Then recompile gEDA and things should work right.

- Redhat 6.0

  The guile RPMs that are shipped with RedHat 6.0 has been giving some 
  people some trouble.  The solution seems to grab either the SRPMS and
  build that or get the guile-1.3.tar.gz file and build guile manually.

- SunOS / Solaris 

	If you have problems running the shell script wrappers (when
	running ./gschem or any of the other programs), try changing
	the shell to /bin/ksh (or where ksh is).  /bin/sh is known to
	be of lesser quality on Solaris.

	Also run ./configure --disable-shared if you have to problems
	running programs because a shared library isn't be found/loaded.
