14.2.1: Installation on Linux computers

Installation is easy on RedHat and Debian flavors of linux. Versions are available from the official distributions and also at `'

The RedHat version supports intel platforms only, while the Debian version supports intel, alpha, 68K and powerpc. Installation follows the normal method for these distributions ... if you have the distribution, you surely know what to do. If you don't, you may want to switch when you see that you can install Gri by clicking an icon in a window, or by typing, e.g. in RedHat linux:

rpm -i gri-2.12.18

Debian-linux installation may be done with any of several GUI-based tools, or with the following system command:

dkpg -i gri_2.12.18-1_i386.deb

or via a properly configured `apt' interface that will fetch the latest version from the net:

apt-get install gri
