Important Note: Before attempting to install GNO v2.0.6, you are strongly encouraged to read this entire chapter, and then consult the GNO FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions list, which is also available via ftp) for those sections related to installation.
These instructions should be considered as draft quality. If you have suggestions on or corrections to these instructions, please forward them to Devin Reade.
This chapter contains information on how to install the newest version of GNO, which is version 2.0.6 or later. It explains how to install the base binary distribution. Installation of GNO sources such that you are able to build the base distribution itself are at this time beyond the scope of this document.
At this time, unfortunately, installing GNO is fairly cumbersome. Gsh's scripting abilities are crude at best, and for various reasons the Apple Installer program is not sufficient, When sh (the Bourne Shell) is finished for GNO, installation should be easier.
Information in this chapter may change significantly from release to release, so even if you have previously installed a version newer than v2.0.4, you should review this chapter prior to doing a new installation.
