The Engine should operate on all Unix/POSIX platforms. The following platforms are known to work: Debian GNU/Linux (squeeze, wheezy), Ubuntu (precise), RedHat/CentOS 5 series. We expect the Engine to work well on other Linux platforms as well.
The Engine requires XULRunner version 10 or later to operate. For platforms that do not have XULRunner 10 or later as a package, XULRunner must be compiled separately. Refer to Section 3, “Installation from source” for how to build CF required components from source.
The CF Engine operates as a browser component. Some kind of display device is required. The virtual framebuffer X server (Xvfb) should be used as display device.
For the CF Z39.50/SRU server, YAZ version 4 or later is required. YAZ provides the infrastructure to build Z39.50/SRU applications.
For some Debian wheezy and squeeze, Index Data provides packages for the CF. Refer to README for details (password is required). The following sources list is required:
deb http://ftp.indexdata.dk/debian squeeze main restricted deb-src http://ftp.indexdata.dk/debian squeeze main restricted
Most of the components are installed as follows:
apt-get install cf-engine cf-zserver cf-doc cf-proxy cf-squid
