G-Golf needs the following software to run:
Install from the tarball
G-Golf is under active development and we hope to be able
to release an alpha version within the next few months, but
currently, there is no available tarball. If you want to try or just
follow G-Golf, consider installing from the source.
Install from the source
G-Golf uses Git for revision control, hosted
on Savannah, you may browse the
sources repository here.
There are currently 2 [important] branches: master
and devel. G-Golf stable branch is master, developments occur on the devel
So, to grab, compile and install from the source, open a terminal
- git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/g-golf.git
- cd g-golf
- ./configure [--prefix=/your/prefix] [--with-guile-site=yes]
- make install
The above steps ensure you're using G-Golf bleeding
edge stable version. If you wish to participate to G-Golf, checkout
the devel branch:
- The default and --prefix install
locations for source modules and compiled files (in the absence
of --with-guile-site=yes) are:
If you pass --with-guile-site=yes, these becomes:
- the Guile global site directory
- the Guile site-ccache directory
- The configure step reports these locations as the content of
the sitedir and siteccachedir variables,
respectivelly the source modules and compiled files install locations.
After installation, you may consult these variables
- pkg-config g-golf-1.0 --variable=sitedir
- pkg-config g-golf-1.0 --variable=siteccachedir
- To install G-Golf, you must have write
permissions to the default or $prefix dir and its subdirs, as
well as to both Guile's global site and site-ccache directories
if --with-guile-site=yes was passed.
- Like for any other GNU Tool Chain compatible software, you
may install the documentation locally using make install-info, make install-html and/or make install-pdf.
- Last but not least, G-Golf comes with a
test-suite, which we recommend you to run (especially before reporting
