Pre-requisites for 17.1 on Linux excluding HTMLRenderer

Postby AndyS|Dyalog on Wed May 15, 2019 2:14 pm

This post is a little previous as we have not yet released 17.1. However, the documentation will refer to this post so that we can more easily keep the list of pre-reqs up to date.

The purpose of this post is to detail the pre-reqs needed to install Dyalog APL 17.1; details of any additional pre-reqs needed to allow the HTMLRenderer to work on Linux can be found here.

The same table applies to 16.0 and 17.0 on Linux other than that they will install on CentOS6/RedHat6 without any pre-reqs.

Our intention is to support versions of distributions which will be in standard support for at least 2-3 months after we release a version of Dyalog APL.

Below is a list of distributions/versions which we have tested.

We have included the command needed to install the necessary pre-reqs, but remember that it will need to be run with root privileges - either su beforehand or run sudo command. In some cases there are other commands that could be used and you can always use the distribution's GUI-based software management tool instead.

Details correct as of 2019-05-15 - we will endevour to keep this list up to date - please let us know if you succeed in getting Dyalog APL to run on other distributions or versions.

      Distribution    : Action
Debian 8.2, 9.8, 9.9 : no pre-reqs
Fedora 29, 30 : dnf install ncurses-compat-libs
Linux Mint 18.0, 19.0 : no pre-reqs
openSUSE 15.0 : zypper install libncurses5
CentOS/RedHat 6 : not supported for 17.1 as glibc is at too low a level
CentOS/RedHat 7 : no pre-reqs
RedHat 8 : rpm -Uvh ncurses-compat-libs (note: RH8 would not install in a VM)
Ubuntu 16.04, 18.04 : no pre-reqs
Ubuntu 19.04 : apt-get install libtinfo5
