1.2 Requirements

In order to build and install MDK, you will need the following libraries installed in your system:

If present, readline and history are used to provide command completion and history management to the command line MIX virtual machine, mixvm. GTK+ and libglade are needed if you want to build the graphical interface to the MIX virtual machine, gmixvm. Finally, if libguile is found, the MDK utilities will be compiled with Guile support and will be extensible using Scheme.

Please note: you need both the libraries and the headers; this means both the library package and the -dev package if you do not compile your libraries yourself (ex: installing libgtk2.0-0 and libgtk2.0-0-dev on Debian).
