Apertium on Fedora
The installation of Apertium on Fedora is similar to the other distributions.
Installing the newest version from SVN
Open a Terminal window, authenticate as root and go through the following steps.
Step 0: Run a system update. (Optional)
su - yum update
This is optional, but recommended.
Step 1: Install the prerequisites.
yum install subversion make gcc gcc-c++ pcre-devel libxml2-devel flex libtool automake autoconf
Step 2: Download apertium, lttoolbox and language pairs from SVN.
svn co http://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/trunk apertium
Note: The above checkout will download lots of files with all the released language pairs. If you have limited bandwidth or disk space (or time), please follow the Minimal installation from SVN instead.
Step 3: Compile and install lttoolbox.
cd apertium cd lttoolbox/ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh make make install ldconfig
Step 4: Compile and install apertium.
cd .. cd apertium/ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh make make install ldconfig
Step 5: You can now compile the language pairs that you want to use. It's the same procedure for every pair.
Note: we give an example with apertium-fr-es
cd .. cd apertium-fr-es/ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig ./autogen.sh make make install
Step 6: Try it out.
echo "J'ai deux frères" | apertium fr-es
In case you got the following message or something similar in the terminal...
checking for pcreposix.h... no configure: error: *** unable to locate pcreposix.h include file ***
...then you will need to install pcre-devel:
yum install pcre-devel
