Platforms and Requirements

The Chipmunk tools require an ANSI c compiler (typically GCC) and X11 (R4, R5, or R6). Monochrome, 8-bit, 16-bit, and 24-bit per pixel color displays are supported; however, 16-bit and 24-bit color modes have only been tested on PC platforms (X11 under Linux and OS/2). An HTML browser (like Mosaic or Lynx or Netscape) is also necessary to access the Chipmunk documentation.

These are the currently supported platforms for the source distribution, with details of platform-specific requirements:

Binary distributions have been built by third-parties for the following architectures. Contact the authors for additional information.

Absent from this list are the following popular platforms.

Feel free to contact me if you are interested in starting or helping a porting project. I'd be happy to offer advice and assistance, and to integrate your completed port into the next distribution.
