Software Requirement

To compile and run DDCcontrol, you need to have these packages installed:

In addition to the library packages, you also need the development packages, which are not usually installed. For example, on Debian, their names are libxml2-dev, pciutils-dev and libgtk2.0-dev. Others distributions probably have similar packages names. On Fedora Core 5, you will also need gnome-panel-devel package.


You don't need pci-utils if you don't use direct PCI memory access, and you don't need gtk+ if you don't plan to use the Gnome GUI. Usually, this is not the case, so you will need these packages. Logo
