Garlic tends to be POSIX compliant. It is also ANSI C compliant, to the
maximum possible extent. Xlib functions are the only non-ANSI functions
used by this program.
Unix or unix clone and the X window system. Linux and XFree86 recommended.
SUPPORTED HARDWARE PLATFORMS
Desktop PC, laptop, notebook, unix workstation equipped with a color
monitor with a color depth of at least 8 bits per pixel. No dials required.
Some X servers do not support TrueColor visual at 8 bits per pixel: try to
switch to higher color depth (12, 15, 24, ...)!
Intel, Digital Alpha, SUN MIPS and some others. This program has no special
Garlic requires the X window system. The recommended version is X11R6,
but older versions may work too.
THE X SERVER SHOULD BE CAPABLE TO SUPPORT TrueColor VISUAL!
Some older servers may be unable to support the TrueColor visual; if you
have such X server, garlic will refuse to work. Some modern X servers do not
support the TrueColor visual at 8 bits per pixel, but these are usually
running on a hardware which may offer 12 or more bits per pixel.
GNU C compiler is recommended, but other compilers compliant with ANSI C
standard should work too.
The only required libraries are libc (C), libm (mathematical)
and libX11 (the standard X11 library).
The standard PC 101/102 keyboard should work fine. The laptop keyboard
may be used too. If you have some kind of unix workstation with terminal
keyboard, this may work too.
Any mouse should serve well.
THE LIST OF COMPATIBLE SYSTEMS
Up to now, it is confirmed that garlic may be compiled
and used on these systems:
Intel (486, Pentium MMX)
SGI (Iris Indigo)
Please inform me (
if you successfully compiled and used garlic on a system which is not
listed here. Anyone tryed to compile garlic on HP system?
