Prerequisites for RPM

From Apertium
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page shows how to install the standard dependencies of apertium (and related packages) on RHEL / CentOS / Fedora / OpenSUSE and operating systems based on those. For RHEL/CentOS we require some dependencies from EPEL, and for CentOS 8 we also require the PowerTools repo.

If you don't plan on working on the core C++ packages (but only want to work on / use language pairs), you can install all prerequisites with yum/zypper, using User:Tino Didriksen's repository. The first line here adds this repository to yum/zypper, then we can just install the usual way:

# Pick one
# Release, stable:
curl -sS | sudo bash
# Or nightly, unstable:
curl -sS | sudo bash

# RHEL/CentOS:
sudo yum install apertium-all-devel
# Fedora:
sudo dnf install apertium-all-devel
# OpenSUSE:
sudo zypper install apertium-all-devel

For a list of available language pairs and other packages, see and

If you want to work on a language pair, you'll have to check out the language data from GitHub and compile it.

Otherwise, e.g. if you want to work on the core C++ packages, continue to Install Apertium core by compiling.
