SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

These requirements apply to gAnim8 (not the gAnim8 Conversion Tool or GtkSnapshot)

NOTE: If you download one of the 'SUITE' versions of gAnim8, you do NOT have to worry about satisfying the FFMPEG and Gifsicle requirements. If you download a 'basic' version of gAnim8, make sure your system meets all the requirements below.

REQUIRED:
Package RPM Source Notes
Python Find RPMS Find Source Code 2.2 or better (version 2.1 or lower will NOT work)
Gtk+ Find RPMS Find Source Code 1.2.8-4 or better is recommended
PyGTK Find RPMS Find Source Code 0.6.9 or better (with the gdkimlib module - do not use the package 'python-gtk', must be PyGtk or pygtk)
PyGnome Find RPMS Find Source Code 1.4.1-1 or better, 1.4.2 recommended (Do NOT use the package called 'gnome-python', must be 'pygnome')
Python Numeric Find RPMS Find Source Code version 20.3 or better
Imlib / GdkImlib Find RPMS Find Source Code Most Gnome and GTK users probably already have this, Imlib version 1.9.8.1-6 or better is recommended
Gnome Libs Find RPMS Find Source Code 1.4 or better recommended, you *should* be able to get away with just the Gnome-libs
Gifsicle Find RPMS Find Source Code which contains both the 'gifsicle' and 'gifview' executables, version 1.30 or better, either the 'gifsicle' or 'ungifsicle' package should do. ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED - gAnim8 will do nothing without it.   Also, available in the download section.


RECOMMENDED:
Package RPM Source Notes
FFMPEG Find RPMS Find Source Code containing the 'ffmpeg' binary with the 'libavcodec' shared library - version 0.4.6 or better - required for ALL video support (in addition to ImageMagick)   Also, available in the download section.
ImageMagick Find RPMS Find Source Code containing the 'convert' binary, version 5.2.3+, version 5.4.6.1 or better recommended - adds support for 110+ image formats.   Also, available in the download section.


NOTE: This program is built on top of Gifsicle, so you can do nothing with gAnim8 until you get Gifsicle. gAnim8 will run, but will refuse to do anything without Gifsicle installed.


Links:
There are some RPMS and source for Gifsicle on speakeasy.rpmfind.net and www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/ .

The 'ffmpeg' package can be found on speakeasy.rpmfind.net and at the FFMPEG web site.

The ImageMagick package can be found on both speakeasy.rpmfind.net and www.imagemagick.org .

Pre-compiled binaries of FFMPEG, gifsicle, and ImageMagick can also be found in the download section.
