Yudit Installation

Installing Yudit from RPM Source Package

The rpm packaged installation is very easy. Binary rpm packages my be available but I recommend that you get the source rpm and recompile. Some of the binaries may not be compatible with your system.

1. Get the the latest version of yudit-version-src.rpm.
2. Type

      rpmbuild --rebuild yudit-version-src.rpm 

This will configure, compile and install the package. Watch out for errors as you may need some additional software packages. Check the location and name of the resulting binary rpm package.
3. Type

      rpm --install the-resulting-binary.rpm

4. Enjoy yudit, mytool, uniprint and uniconv.

Converting soruce tarball to a binary rpm

From version 2.4.8 and above, there is a way to make rpm package directly from yudit-version.tar.gz.

1. Get the the latest version of yudit-version.tar.gz .
2. Type

      rpmbuild -tb yudit-version.tar.gz

3. Type

      rpm --install the-resulting-binary.rpm

Windows installation is just one click on the executable. For configuration hints type 'howto windows' in the command area.

Installing Yudit from Source Packages

The source package installation will be necessary if you want to install the qt and motif add-ons, or if you want to customize you installation.

Watch out for error messages. You may need some additional software packages.
