* General Questions [#t999ae00]

*** What GMV can do? [#t78f81a5]

*** Can I try GMV (and murasaki) by just downloading the software? [#i000694e]

*** Is GMV able to visualize non-Murasaki results from BLASTZ, Mauve etc.? [#qa2eefbf]

*** There are many files in Murasaki's output. Which are essential for GMV? [#v9b97efe]

* Platform specific FAQ [#te4fa855]

** MacOS X [#e56a5b75]

*** Is Snow Leopard supported? [#h5fe03dc]

Surely. I'm writing the code on Snow Leopard.

The binary distribution works on MacOS X 10.4 (Tiger) and later (PPC
and Intel platforms are supported).  It works with Quartz (the native
graphics interface of MacOS X), but It'll be easy to comple with X11
if you try to compile by yourself.

*** I'm running Panther (or older) MacOS X! [#ebff27cb]

You can compile/run GMV, if you have X11 and GTK+ installed on your
Mac. But this may need some hacking effort today, because MacPorts no
longer supports older versions than Tiger.

** Microsoft Windows [#sc8a5e0a]

*** Which version of Windows are supported? [#b5eeb973]

GMV works on Windows 2000, XP and Vista.

Running the binary requires [[GTK+ runtime:http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/files/GTK%2B%20Runtime%20Environment/GTK%2B%202.14/]]. It
is also possible to build on Cygwin or MinGW/MSYS. The distributed GMV
binary is cross-compiled on my Mac with MinGW library.

** Linux [#f40f16e3]

*** Are there are any binary package for Linux? [#j7f6a571]

No... There are too many distributions to maintain the binary
distribution. Please compile GMV from the source tarball.

** FreeBSD [#r2b6117c]

*** Is GMV available in Ports collection? [#mf81c6f0]

I want to do that... Anybody want to use it? If so, please poke me :)
