Automatic installation from the OpenBSD package collection

Manual installation

This page documents installing GRAMPS on FreeBSD, openBSD, etc. First make sure the following packages are installed:

  • py24-gnome
  • py24-gnome-extras
  • automake19
  • gnomecommon
  • autoconf259
  • gnu-automake
  • gnu-libtool
  • gmake

Then do the following:

  • Download and extract the source code:
  $ gunzip gramps-2.2.3.tar.gz
  $ tar xvf gramps-2.2.3.tar
  • Configure the source code to use /usr/X11R6 for its path, since that is where FreeBSD likes to put gtk/gnome stuff:
  $ cd gramps-2.2.3
  $ export PATH=/usr/local/gnu-autotools/bin:$PATH
  $ export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/local/gnu-autotools/share/aclocal
           -I. -I /usr/local/share/aclocal -I /usr/X11R6/share/aclocal"
  $ ./
  $ gmake
  $ gmake install

This will compile and install GRAMPS correctly.
