What Pre-requisites are Needed for Installation?


What are the pre-requisites for installing Traverse?



Linux Installations
Some 64-bit Linux host operating systems don't install 32-bit compatibility libraries by default. Traverse runs on 64-bit systems, but needs the 32-bit compatibility libraries installed. The name of the 32-bit compatibility package varies across Linux distributions. See your distribution's documentation or Web site to determine the 32-bit compatibility package for your distribution

Perl version 5.8 or above (should be included by default) is required. Traverse also requires three specific libraries in addition to the Traverse installer files:
The required RPMs to install for these libraries changes depending on which version of RedHat Enterprise/CentOS is in use. To determine the correct RPM for your platform, you can use the "rpm" command:

rpm -q --whatprovides $filename

Where $filename is the library, e.g. Example session on CentOS 5:

[root@host ~]# rpm -q --whatprovides

Generally the required packages are compat-libstdc++-33, compat-libstdc++-296, and for it may be either libXp, or xorg-x11-deprecated-libs, depending on the OS version.

Windows Installations
On Windows, Traverse requires no pre-requisites and will install all needed packages and files from the Traverse installer.

See the Traverse User Guide, Software Requirements for Unix/Linux Platforms for additional details.
