Installing Newspeak Starter Pack in Fedora 14 x86_64

This week I changed my Linux OS from Ubuntu 32 bit to Fedora 64 bits. Also, I’m starting to work with the Newspeak Language(more info at newspeaklanguage.org), so I decided to install the Starter Pack available in the website for Linux.

However, the – still based in Squeak Smalltalk- Virtual Machine only runs in 32 bits, so when you try tu use it, it complies that things are missing (Abstract for Pros: Download the starter pack and install the required 32 bit libraries. stop reading this.)

You should run the following command:
# yum install libuuid.i686 libXext.i686 libSM.i686

after this. just run the vm. I copied the nsvm and SqueakV39.sources files to /usr/local/bin, so you can run directly and everywhere you have an image a command like
$ nsvm ns101.image
and, after this, start using Newspeak!
