There are some binary packages from several contributors; Please report all packaging bugs to their respective maintainers. They are contributions by those who participate in the Xiphos mailing lists. Note that updated binary packages may not be available immediately upon release of new source tarballs.
If you have packages to contribute or information on how to build them for a specific distribution, please let us know.
Xiphos operates using support from Sword. Current Xiphos requires Sword version 1.6.2 or later (source). Most packagers offer libsword in addition to Xiphos packages.
Note that if you choose to build Xiphos with your own build of Sword, CLucene is not required, though it is still recommended.
For other releases, look here.
Check out the current SVN source tree with:
svn co https://gnomesword.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/gnomesword/trunk xiphos
Then build it with:
cd xiphos ./waf configure --prefix=/usr --backend=webkit --gtk=auto ./waf build sudo ./waf install
The Xiphos module manager provides automated download and installation support for all of the modules available from Crosswire in their standard module download area, or for any other repository set up to handle module manager access. See the links page for availability of additional modules.
