-- Installation




Before you install make sure you have the following perl modules installed. If you don't have them, follow the provided link to download the refering pakage and install on your system:

Encode or decode strings with HTML entities
Perl module to use HTML Templates
Escape and unescape unsafe characters 

You also need The Gimp and Gimp-Perl if you use Gimp to rescale your images. As alternative you can use ImageMagic with the -I switch.


The actual installation is fairly easy. The exact insatllation procedure depends whether use use the RPM or the tar archive for installation.
  • Installing the RPM
    This is the easiest way to get BBGallery. Download the RPM and run (as root):
         	rpm -Uvh bbgallery.rpm
     That's all there is to it.

  • Installing the tar archive If your system doesn't support RPM, you may need to use the tar archive for installation. Download the file and unpack the archive using:
    	bzcat bbgallery.tar.bz2 | tar xvf -
    Now change into the new created directory bbgallery-version and use make to build and install it:
    	make bbgallery
    make install
    This will install BBGallery into /usr/binand /usr/lib. If you want another destination set prefix in the make commandline accordingly. I.e.
    	make install prefix=/usr/local
    will install in /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/lib

    Not too difficult  either, is it?
