''The following note on how to build Fox on Debian stable or testing was tested on Debian Lenny 2008/11/16 - please be careful with these instructions, most particularly do not add the binaries repository for unstable, only the source repository !'' Carlo Segre's packages are also available from [[http://debian-xray.iit.edu|his debian-xray repository]].
Line 19: Line 19:
If you are running Debian ''testing'' (this may work on ''stable'', I have not tested), you'll need the foolowing steps to rebuild Fox for your system:
 * Add to ```/etc/apt/sources.list``` the source packages for ''unstable'' (''note'': as you add only the source package for ''unstable'', this will '''not''' make unstable binaries available for your system), i.e. a line with (please use a local mirror, i.e. replace ```ftp.lip6.fr``` by e.g. ```ftp.uk.debian.org```...):
  ```deb-src http://ftp.lip6.fr/pub/linux/distributions/debian/ unstable main```
 * Update your packages indexes:
  ```aptitude update```
 * Install the build dependencies for Fox:
  ```apt-get build-dep objcryst-fox```
 * Build Fox (this will download the source package and build Fox in the current directory):
  ```apt-get source -b objcryst-fox```
 * Install the ```.deb``` which is now available in the directory (the name will vary with the version of Fox and your architecture):
   ```dpkg -i objcryst-fox_1.7.99.R1047-1_amd64.deb```
==== Ubuntu package ====
The Debian package is also available in Ubuntu as the ```objcryst-fox``` package. It can be installed using ```sudo apt-get install objcryst-fox```, for any Ubuntu version since Lucid (10.04), although upgrading to a more recent version is recommended.
