redchi can be installed by one of two methods:
installing from source (SVN or stable) is relatively straightforward, as the build system will try to detect everything for you. There are a few dependencies that must be available, however. These include:
However, redchi requires a more pkgconfig compliant version of the libraries shown above, which can be found at the following sites:
Once the prereqs are satisfied, download the redchi source here
(or just use the quickdownload link at the top of this page). If you'd like to checkout the latest source from SVN, do:
svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/redchi/trunk
Note, however, that the autobuild tools may be broken if you use the SVN checkout method, so you may need to run
before running configure.
As long as all the libraries/headers are available, you should be able to run
after extracting the archive and it will attempt to find everything. Optionally run
to change any of the configure/build options, including providing information as to the location of any extra header/library include locations. For example:
./configure --with-fftw2-lib=/data/progs/lib CXXFLAGS="-g -Wall"
Once the configure step completes successfully, simply run
in the directory you ran configure in, followed by
(as root) to complete the installation.
installing from binaries (e.g. RPMs) is relatively straightforward, just download the files you need from the redchi sourceforge files
page, and install them as per your distro recommended method. If you would like to contribute binaries for a particular distribution, don't hesitate to get in touch with one of the authors
To get started using the program, either a system-wide or per-user redchi.conf file must be available - see the Command line options
page for more information.
