System requirements for VDT 1.1.11
VDT 1.1.14 runs on RedHat 7.x. It may work on other Linux releases,
but we do not guarantee it.
- Pacman The VDT is installed with Pacman. For VDT 1.1.11, we recommend
Pacman 2.116. Until Pacman 3 is officially released, we do not
recommend using it.
- Python Pacman 2.116 requires Python
1.5.2 or later. This is usually installed on RedHat Linux
computers, so it should not be a problem for you. An easy way to check
the version you have is to run python, then type control-D to exit
Python 1.5.2 (#3, Jun 11 2001, 17:43:55) [GCC 2.95.3 20010315 (release)] on linux2

- gcc Although most of the VDT is installed as binaries, the
GNU C compiler (gcc) is required for a few portions of the
installation. We recommend using the gcc that is distributed with your
operating system. For RedHat 7.2, that is gcc 2.96. For RedHat 9.0,
that is gcc 3.2.2.
- Perl The VDT requires that Perl is properly installed...
