Installing MRIcro on Linux
This web page describes how to install MRIcro on Linux. A manual and tutorial are also available. Your system needs to have a recent version of Linux (MRIcro has been tested on RedHat [6.1, 6.2, 7.0], SuSE [7.0-9.1] and Mandrake [7.2, 8.0]), an x86 (Intel, AMD, etc) CPU and the graphic card must be set up to support 24 or 32-bit color (millions of colors).
Note for 64-bit users: MRIcro will run on without any special modification on many x86-64bit Linux systems (e.g. SuSE and Fedora). However, you must modify your system to run MRIcro (or any other Kylix-based application) on Gentoo x86-64bit systems (that store 32-bit libraries in usr/lib32 instead of usr/lib). Click here for instructions to run MRIcro on Gentoo x86-64.
You can either install MRIcro as the root user [administrator], or as a single user. If you install MRIcro as root, all users will be able to run MRIcro.
Installing as root: [so all users can run MRIcro]
Installing as a single user: [only you will be able to run MRIcro]
Tips and Tricks:
Installing MRIcro for Linux on Solaris x86 systems [using lxrun]
The Linux version of MRIcro should also run on Solaris x86 computers that have lxrun installed. The lxrun package is a free download. Once lxrun is installed, you should be able to install and run MRIcro for Linux. Because lxrun is a compatibility layer instead of an emulator, MRIcro should run quickly and smoothly.
Installing MRIcro for Windows on a Linux Machine (obsolete)
It is also possible to run the Windows-version of MRIcro on a Linux machine, by using the 'Wine' emulator. It is strongly recommended that you use the Linux native version. This section is now obsolete.
rpm -i wine-XXXXXX-1.i386.rpm
wine /bin/mricro [assuming you placed mricro in the directory 'bin']
