4. Installing CSPM and its requirements

This section describes how to acquire the Qt application development environment and install CSPM.

4.1. Installing Qt 3.0 or later

Qt 3.0 or later must be installed on the system before you install CSPM. Follow these steps to acquire and configure Qt:

  1. Download the Qt X/11 Free Edition from http://www.trolltech.com for the latest version of Qt.

  2. Follow Trolltech's instructions for installing Qt.

  3. Run ./configure with the -thread switch to the configure program so that Qt is installed to run in multithreaded mode.

    # ./configure -thread
    
  4. Be sure to export the variables QTDIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH, as described in the Qt installation instructions that are downloaded with the software.

4.2. Installing CSPM

The following sections describe how to download and install CSPM. These steps must be run by the root user. The installation process creates a directory called spm and places all the files in that directory.

4.2.1. Installing from rpm

Follow these steps to install CSPM from the rpm file:

  1. Download the CSPM rpm file from SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/cspm. The program name for CSPM is spm2.

  2. Install the software:

    # rpm -ihv --nodeps spm2-1.0-1.586.rpm
    

    The rpm creates the binary call spm2 in the current directory.

4.2.2. Installing from tar

Follow these steps to install CSPM from the tar file:

  1. Download the CSPM tar file from SourceForge at http://sourceforge.net/projects/cspm. The program name for CSPM is spm2.

  2. Untar the spm2.tar.gz file:

    # tar xvzf spm2.tar.gz
    
  3. Compile CSPM:

    # make all
    

    The make command creates the binary call spm2 in the current directory.

4.3. Starting the CSPM monitor

The spm2 program should be run by a user other than root so that any changes to the default preference settings can be changed.

Enter the following command from the directory where CSPM is installed:

# ./spm2

If a segmentation fault occurs when spm2 is starting up, make sure that you have set the QTDIR and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables, as described in the Qt installation instructions that are downloaded with the software.
