More Information

Manual Installation

In some cases, manual download and install is preferable. The zip files are in a format suitable for the RISC OS Packaging project, however they are ordinary zip files and the application can be located inside them and dragged from them onto your RISC OS machine.

The application will normally be in a subfolder of the folder called Apps. (e.g. Apps.Games).

Requirements

The requirements for individual applications vary, but you generally need:

  • SharedUnixLibrary module: http://www.riscos.info/downloads/gccsdk/sharedunixlib/system.zip
  • Some sound support requires the Digital Renderer module: shipped with the SharedUnixLibrary
  • (Deprecated, used only by older ports) !UnixHome application (typically required by some ported Unix programs wishing to store configuration files and settings in the Unix user's home directory).
