 +
 +
* Install [http://www.graphviz.org/Download.php Graphviz]
 +
 +
* Install Python
 +
** On most Linux distributions it comes by default.
 +
** On Windows: Get the msi release [http://www.python.org/2.4.2/ here]
 +
** Add the installation directory to the PATH variable
 +
 +
* Install Python Extensions
 +
** PyXml is needed for web services and is available [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=6473&package_id=6541 here]. There's a binary package for Mac [http://pythonmac.org/packages/py24-fat/mpkg/PyXML-0.8.4-py2.4-macosx10.4.mpkg.zip here]
 +
*** To install it from source, download the .tar.gz file and uncompress it
 +
*** Then inside the uncompressed folder, type: ''python setup.py build'' and later ''sudo python setup.py install''
 +
** fpconst and SOAPpy are also required for using web services. fpconst is available [http://www.sci.utah.edu/~emanuele/files/fpconst-0.7.2.tar here]. SOAPpy is available [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=26590&package_id=18246 here]

** '''For WINDOWS only:''' to access the Windows API, we need ctypes available [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=71702&package_id=71318 here]
 +
 +
* Install VTK CVS version (if you want to use VTK)
 +
** First you'll need CMake: get the latest release [http://www.cmake.org/HTML/Download.html here]
 +
** Then you can get vtk: follow the instructions to download the CVS source code on this [http://www.vtk.org/get-software.php page]
 +
** Before compiling VTK, add CORIE and other needed files to VTK. Instructions [wiki:ExtraVTKFIles here]
 +
** To compile VTK follow the instructions in the file ''README.html'' in the root of VTK directory tree
 +
** On configuring CMake, make sure that the variables VTK_WRAP_PYTHON, VTK_USE_GUISUPPORT, VTK_USE_DISPLAY are ON and VTK_USE_QVTK is OFF
 +
** It is recommended to create a environment variable called PYTHONPATH
 +
*** PYTHONPATH=''<path/to/vtk_build>''/Wrapping/Python:''<path/to/vtk_build>''/bin:.
 +
* Install Qt 4.2.0 or above
 +
** You can get the open source version for all platforms [http://www.trolltech.com/download/opensource.html here]
 +
** When installing on windows, Qt requires the mingw compiler. It will also offer to download and install automatically for you
 +
** After installing you need to build the Qt library:
 +
** ('''Skip this step if you're not a windows user''') Run the Qt 4.1.0 Command Prompt located in the Qt Program Folder (it will set all the environment variables to build the library for you).
 +
** Run '''configure''' then '''make'''
 +
* Install SIP
 +
** Get the stable release version availaable '''[http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/sip/download.php here]'''. (The latest snapshot version is [http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/Downloads/Snapshots/sip4/ here])
 +
** Uncompress the file, and inside the directory, type '''python configure.py'''. On WIndows type '''python configure.py -p win32-g++'''.  On 64-bit Linux type '''python configure.py -d /usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/PyQt4'''. Then '''make''' and '''make install'''
 +
* Install PyQt4
 +
** Get the stable version, available '''[http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/pyqt/download.php here]'''.  (The latest snapshot version is [http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/Downloads/Snapshots/PyQt4/ here])
 +
** Uncompress the file, and inside the directory, type '''python configure.py'''. On 64-bit Linux type '''python configure.py -d /usr/lib64/python2.4/site-packages/PyQt4'''. Then '''make''' and '''make install'''
 +
* Install MySQLdb (Python library allowing MySQL databases access)
 +
** The file is available [http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=22307&package_id=15775 here]
