  • Sybase ASE, for installation instructions, see here
  • Qt 3.3.x - at this time, OpenAmeos is based on Qt 3, so you need to have Qt 3 on your machine, we have built Qt like this:
./configure -libdir /usr/lib/qt-3.3.4/lib \
-headerdir /usr/lib/qt-3.3.4/include -bindir /usr/lib/qt-3.3.4/bin \
-DQT_NO_CHECK -no-xinerama -no-xft
make; make install;
  • Java JDK >= 1.6
  • ANT >= 1.6
  • JavaCC - ZIP goes as into tools/common/javacc
  • BCEL - bcel.jar goes into source/java

Checking out and configuring the environment

  • check out the code from the SVN repository
  • adjust paths as necessary in source/editors.src/Config/
  • adjust paths as necessary in archenv.LINUX86

Build the code

  • in a shell type
. ./archenv.LINUX86
cd source/editors.src/Config
make Makefiles
cd ../edit

Run the application

  • copy ToolInfo.LINUX86 into your home directory and adjust any paths (in particular substituting HOMEDIR)
  • set an env variable ToolInfo to the above ToolInfo file
  • start msgd in the background
  • start ameos

If something is not working, it might help to check your environment against an env which has been set up by the Linux Installer from one of the Linux binary distributions
