The precompiled AViz RPM binaries are prepared under Linux RedHat 7.0, Linux RedHat 8.0, and SUSE Linux. (For special problems with SUSE contact Adham Hashibon, firstname.lastname@example.org or read a note from Thomas Prellberg.)

To compile AViz, a C++ compiler such as
g++ is needed.
AViz should compile and run on all UNIX machines on which
is installed. In addition, the
libpng and the
zlib libraries are required. These two libraries are included in
Qt distributions and should
be present by default. Linux users will find RPM files providing
these software packages all over the net.
During compilation, AViz makes use of a Makefile builder
tmake. It does not usually come with the Qt library
and must be installed separately. It can be downloaded from the
Qt site. Linux
users may download a RPM file
from this server. Note that
tmake is expected to reside in
/usr/local/bin. If your
