11 There are two kinds of Frodo distributions. The source distributions
12 (<TT>FrodoV?_?.Src.*</TT>) contain source code that has to be compiled on
13 your system. The binary distributions (<TT>FrodoV?_?.&lt;system
14 name&gt;.*</TT>) contain an executable that can be started directly.
15
16 <H2>Compiling under Unix</H2>
17
18 First you have to run the script <TT>configure</TT>. This can be done simply
19 with the following command:<P>
20
21 <KBD>$ cd Src<BR>
22 $ ./configure</KBD><P>
23
24 If there is no configure script in the distribution (for example, if you have
25 checked out the Frodo sources from the CVS repository) run
26 <TT>autogen.sh</TT> instead:<P>
27
28 <KBD>$ cd Src<BR>
29 $ ./autogen.sh</KBD><P>
30
31 For optimum performance, Frodo needs the following prerequisites:<P>
32
33 <UL>
34 <LI><A HREF="http://www.libsdl.org">SDL 1.2.x</A>
35 <LI>OpenGL 2.0 or higher
36 <LI><A HREF="http://glew.sourceforge.net">GLEW</A>
37 <LI>libglade2 and libgnomeui 2.x
38 </UL>
39
40 <TT>configure</TT> and <TT>autogen.sh</TT> accept optional arguments (type
41 <KBD>./configure --help</KBD> for a full list). For example, to disable
42 OpenGL support, you can enter<P>
43
44 <KBD>$ ./configure --disable-opengl</KBD><P>
45
46 To use SVGAlib on Linux systems, you have to do<P>
47
48 <KBD>$ ./configure --without-x</KBD><P>
49
50 After configuration has completed, type<P>
51
52 <KBD>$ make</KBD><P>
53
54 The Frodo GUI requires the <TT>Frodo.glade</TT> file to be present in the
55 directory <TT>/usr/local/src/frodo</TT> (you can specify a different
56 installation directory with <KBD>./configure --prefix</KBD>). Either copy
57 this file manually from <TT>Src/glade/Frodo.glade</TT> or become root and
58 type<P>
59
60 <KBD># make install</KBD>
61
62 <H2>Compiling under BeOS</H2>
63
64 There are separate Makefiles for Frodo (<TT>Makefile.BeOS</TT>) and Frodo SC
65 (<TT>Makefile.BeOS.SC</TT>). Type<P>
66
67 <KBD>$ cd Src<BR>
68 $ make -fMakefile.BeOS<BR>
69 $ make -fMakefile.BeOS.SC</KBD><P>
70
71 to compile both versions.
72
73 <H2>Compiling under AmigaOS</H2>
74
75 The makefile was written for the ADE with GCC. Other compilers have not been
76 tested. You must rename (or copy) Src/sysconfig.h.Amiga to Src/sysconfig.h
77 first. Then type<P>
78
79 <KBD>cd Src<BR>
80 make -fMakefile.Amiga all</KBD><P>
