Some notes on the vista package
The vista libray was originally created by Art Pope and David Lowe of the
University of British Columbia (Vancover, Canada). The location of the original
software is here.
To download the latest version of the software, please go here.
My contribution to this work is the move from an imake based configuration
to the GNU style configure.
Also I did change the directory three and changed the libraries.
What you need to install this distribution of vista
The installation itself should go smooth, since it is not more then:
- A UNIX platform (Linux, IRIX 6.5 and Digital UNIX V4.0A are tested)
- A working ANSI C compiler
- XFree (I tested it with 3.3.6 and 4.0.1)
- With version 2.1.5 you also need a working version of motif (download here)
preferable in installed a standart location, Lesstiff was not tested so far.
tar -zxvf vista-2.1.5.tar.gz
Configure has currently no option to set an alternate location of motif.
There may be licensing problems, since Motif has no free or open source license.
Even though I do not actively maintain vista you might contact me, if you have questions.
