Hints for Installing from Source Code

Current source build documentation

For installation from source code, it is recommended and assumed that you are familiar with the procedure to build and install software from the actual source code. Please be sure to read the files README.md and INSTALL.md

Typically you will need to install various missing dependencies such as development libraries and helper utilities. The configuration process tries to help you to find out about what is missing.

If you run into trouble, search the category Source Code Edition for a solution and if not found, please raise your question there in the forum.
