Prepare for compilation

If you are booting from Live CD, select default option. If you have already installed SliTaz, everything should work fine. Tested with SliTaz 4.0

Change user to root: su

Install Bash

tazpkg get-install bash

Make sure, to point /bin/sh to /bin/bash (answer yes on prompt) Now, run bash:


Install dependencies, needed to run Apertium

tazpkg get-install

Install dependencies, needed to build Apertium

Note, that we log all the installed packages to file

for p in make gcc linux-api-headers pcre-dev libxml2-dev libxslt-dev subversion pkg-config automake flex libtool; do tazpkg get-install $p >> ~/pkglog; done


Clone repositories

svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/trunk/lttoolbox svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/trunk/apertium svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/trunk/apertium-lex-tools svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/apertium/svn/trunk/apertium-LANGUAGE_PAIR

Where LANGUAGE_PAIR is language pair (e.g. en-eo)

Set up enviroment



cd to each directory in order: lttoolbox, apertium, apertium-lex-tools, apertium-LANGUAGE_PAIR

Then in each directory run:

./autogen.sh make make install ldconfig

Installing Unicode fonts

cd wget ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/system/keyboards/console-data-1999.08.29.tar.gz tar -xvf console-data-1999.08.29.tar.gz tazpkg get-install kbd cd console-data-1999.08.29 ./configure make make install setfont LatArCyrHeb-16

Removing unneeded dependencies

cat ~/pkglog | grep installed | grep -Eo '^[^ ]+' | while read p; do yes | tazpkg remove $p; done

Now, exit root shell: exit
