Installation Instructions for mount.app


SUPPORTED PLATFORMS
===================
(ie: I've heard someone has compiled it on...)

- Alpha/Linux RedHat 5.1
- Intel/Linux RedHat 5.1, Slackware 8.1
- Sparc/Linux RedHat 5.1
- FreeBSD

Patches to make it work on other platforms are welcome.


REQUIREMENTS:
=============

The following software is required to use mount.app

- Window Maker
    This software is designed to be a WM dock app. To run mount.app under
    a different window manager, run mount with the -n command line option.
    Window Maker 0.80 or higher is required.

- libWINGs (part of the Window Maker distribution)
    This library must be installed on your system. It supersedes
    libPropList which was used with Window Maker before 0.70.

- libXpm must be installed and functional

- GTK+ >= 1.0 is required for the configuration app to compile.

mount.app needs the following utilities installed (they usually are by
default anyway): mount, umount, eject, and xmessage.


INSTALLATION:
=============

	./configure
	make

then, login as root and type:

	make install

or if you want to strip the binaries from debugging symbols and make them
smaller, you can instead type:

	make install-strip

This will build and install mount.app with default parameters.

mount.app now defaults to installing the binaries in /usr/local/bin and
the pixmaps in /usr/local/share/mount.app.  And its property list
configuration file is stored as ~/GNUstep/Defaults/mount.app

If the compiler is not finding all your graphics libraries, you can help it
out with these switches:
--with-gfx-libs="-L/some/path/lib" and --with-gfx-incs="-I/some/path/include"

EJECT:
======

The eject feature of mount.app is actually only calling the external
command "eject" and passing it the device name of the mount point.
It will only work with CD-ROMs and Zip disks which support the software
eject feature.  For this to work, the user needs read access to the device
file.
