Prerequisities for installation on Fedora systems

Error: Failed to load processor NewsFlash
No macro or processor named 'NewsFlash' found

Please be sure that you have the following packages installed:

  • gcc
  • tcsh
  • nedit
  • imake
  • xterm
  • rlwrap
  • libXp-devel
  • libXpm-devel
  • libXft-devel
  • libXmu-devel
  • libjpeg-devel
  • libjpeg-turbo-devel
  • libpng-devel
  • xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi

Using yum you can install all necessary packages by running:

yum install gcc tcsh nedit imake xterm rlwrap libXp-devel libXpm-devel libXft-devel libXmu-devel libpng-devel libjpeg-devel xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-75dpi

Fedora offers no packages for OpenMotif development (official announcement). Please use packages provided by Scientific Linux 6 (alternatively use RHEL 6 sources). Depending on your architecture please download three packages (list of mirrors, go to scientific/6x/i386/os/Packages/ or scientific/6x/x86_64/os/Packages/):

  • openmotif
  • openmotif-devel
  • openmotif22

You have to install an additional package providing a dependency executable /usr/share/X11/XKeysymDB (thanks to L. S. Lowe from Birmingham Particle Physics Group):

yum localinstall http://www.ep.ph.bham.ac.uk/general/support/fedora-xkeysymdb.rpm

Now install openmotif RPMs using

yum --nogpgcheck localinstall openmotif*.rpm

Proceed with download and installation of SH/SHM.
