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 source:trunk/doc/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.

How to get dependencies

Most of the dependencies should be met by a recent Linux distribution, Fedora Core 6 and upwards is preferred and supported.

For dependencies that are not fulfilled by the distribution itself have a look at /home/robocup/fawkes/dependencies on our file server.
