Fawkes Dependencies

Here is a list of current Fawkes dependencies. We try to minimize the number of dependencies but some are needed. Please verify your system carefully if it matches the criteria. Check all version numbers! If you are working with Fawkes for the first time and cannot get it to compile and consider sending a team member an email please include all version information about the packages mentioned here, whether they are exactly the same or higher. If any version is lower than what is mentioned here upgrade that package - we cannot help you in that case.

This information has to be replicated in the file DEPENDENCIES in the Fawkes tree because there may be users that get the software without access to this website. But since this website will be the main source for information and since it is better readable we want this information to be here, too.

The Module here denotes either the main application (Fawkes) or a specific plugin (like Navigator) or subsystem (like FireVision). The primary supported platform is Linux in general, and Fedora Linux in particular. Other secondary supported operating platforms include FreeBSD 9.0 and later, and Mac OS X 10.6 an later. See the navigation box for specific instruction pages.

Mandatory dependencies

These are must-have items. If anything is not installed or installed in a lower version it will not work.

FawkesLinux kernel>= 2.6.17Older versions will not work! Obviously not required on other operating systems.
Fawkesmake>= 3.81Needed for second expansion.
Fawkesbash>= 3.2Mandatory for our build system.
FawkesGNU Compiler Collection>= 4.2

Optional dependencies

Below is a list of optional dependencies. Having this will reveal more features and make the software more useable. Many of these optional dependencies reveal a whole new world of features so install what is possible. If the module is marked with an asterisk (*) in the R(ecommended) column then it is strongly recommended to install this dependency. Without the software will not be as useful as it should be.
