Dear other GOK newbies,

I am new to GOK and am interested in accessability on Linux. Now that Redhat-8.0 is out, installation is much easier. By default, redhat-8.0 includes gnome-2.0 which GOK requires.

Even so, I had a hard time learning how to download all the relevant requirements.

Here ia a quick summary for others who are new to gnome-2.0 but would like to try out GOK. These instructions assume you have installed redhat-i386-8.0 as a “Workstation”.

############# How to Install GOK on RedHat-8.0 ###################

# 1. Install the RPM gnome-common
# While it is not mentioned *anywhere*
# The gnome-common package contains the file gnome-autogen.sh
# Without this file, you cannot run ./autogen.sh to setup Gok!
# Download the latest gnome-common from rpmfind.net.
#

mozilla http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/search.php?query=gnome-common

# Here is what I used.
# Even though it says redhat-72 it does work with 8.0
#

wget
ftp://rpmfind.net/linux/helix/gnome-2-snapshot/redhat-72-i386/gnome-common-1.2.4.0.200210090339-0.snap.ximian.1.i386.rpm

rpm -Uvh gnome-common-1.2.4.0.200210090339-0.snap.ximian.1.i386.rpm

# 2. Install additional RPMS from the Redhat CDs.
# Additional RPMs are needed from the RedHat Installation CDs
# These are needed for compiling GOK.
# I like to keep the RPMS from all three CDs on my hard drive.
#

cd /home/pehr/redhat-8.0/RedHat/RPMS

rpm -Uvh perl-SGMLSpm-1.03ii-6.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh docbook-style-dsssl-1.76-6.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh docbook-utils-0.6.11-2.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh gtk-doc-0.9-5.noarch.rpm
rpm -Uvh at-spi-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh at-spi-devel-1.0.1-4.i386.rpm
rpm -Uvh libwnck-devel-0.17-1.i386.rpm

# 3. Get the latest GOK from Gnome CVS
# When prompted for a passwor, just press Enter.
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome login cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@anoncvs.gnome.org:/cvs/gnome -z3 checkout gok

# if you later want to update this release, just type
cvs -q up -P -d

# 4. Now we run the autogen script, Make sure gnome-common is installed!
# This script runs the ./configure script for us.
cd gok/
./autogen.sh
make
su –
make install
gok

# Note: GOK currently doesn’t install Gconf settings for users correctly
# so you will see the best results (IE. GOK actualy running)
# if you run GOK as root rather than as an unpriviledged user.
