6For most Linux distributions it is also necessary to check out the
7'gnome-lib' extension and compile this up *first* before compiling the main
8source code -- be it Greenstone2 or Greenstone3 you are looking to work
9with, as the latter makes use of Greestone2's building code, and get's
10checked out as 'gs2build'.

12Starting in this 'ext' folder you can do this by:
13
14  svn co http://svn.greenstone.org/gs2-extensions/gnome-lib/trunk/src gnome-lib
15  cd gnome-lib
16  source devel.sh
17  ./CASCADE-MAKE.sh
18
19Assuming this completes successfully, now return to your top-level
20Greenstone directory and follow the instructions for compiling that.
21
22ALTERNATIVELY ... you could try the pre-bundled binary version.

24On MacOS:
25
26  curl http://svn.greenstone.org/gs2-extensions/gnome-lib/trunk/gnome-lib-darwin-intel.tar.gz \
27   > gnome-lib-darwin-intel.tar.gz
28  tar xvzf gnome-lib-darwin-intel.tar.gz

35A good optional extra to put in is the OpenOffice extension, with which
36you can build higher quality DL collections sourced from MS Office docs.
