This page is for downloading the base GNUstep system. To download individual applications, libraries or frameworks, see the Applications page.
List of Packages
If that doesn't work. Try the default page.
Many packages should be signed. You can get the public key "gnustep-maintainer (at) gnu.org" from the GNUstep Project Keyring page. Older packages may be signed with the public key "fedor (at) gnu.org" available at the same location. Archives of older packages can be found here.
GNUstep has a Project Page where you can get source information, access to the Subversion (SVN) repository via the web and Anonymous SVN access. Here are better instructions on getting the GNUstep SVN sources.
Current snapshots are available at:
Beware that some users have experienced problems with corrupt files download from ftp.gnustep.org. This may be due to a problem with your particular route to the machine. If you have this problem try using a mirror site or download using the http interface.

Fedora 14 users can install GNUstep via rpm. See the Features page.
FreeBSD users can use the ports directory to install GNUstep:
cd /usr/ports/devel/gnustepas root. See http://www.freshports.org/search.php for a list of ports. Set the drop down boxes to search for "Port Name" "containing" "gnustep" and you will get about 10 ports. To take a closer look at each port, click their respective "CVSWeb" link.
make install clean
Quick command to install gnustep on Frugalware
$ pacman-g2 -S gnustep-extra windowmaker
The newest GNUstep ebuilds can be emerged using the ~ARCH keyword (e.g. ~x86). This can be specified on the command line (as 'ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge ...'), or you can place entries for each GNUstep ebuild in /etc/portage/package.keywords (the preferred method for "mostly" stable systems). More information can be found at "man 5 portage", and the maintainer's page.
After keywording the unstable/testing packages (e.g. ~x86 set for the GNUstep ebuilds you wish to emerge) you can run the following as root:
emerge -pv gnustep-env
After reviewing what will emerge, you can remove the "-p" (pretend) option and run the emerge. See the maintainer's page for any further steps or news. You can install GNUstep applications in a similar way: for example, "emerge gnumail".
GNUstep currently does not work on MacOSX
OpenBSD users can use the regular ports tree to install GNUstep:
sudo make install clean
See the ports dir for all available GNUstep related applications (a lot more are being ported at this moment and will be imported soon).
Slackware packages are at the GNUstep FTP site in the Slackware directory.
Packages which have been tested with Solaris 8, but should also work with Solaris 9 and 10, are available in the binaries/solaris subdirectory of our FTP site.
