    9 If you are lucky, you can install GSAS-II by downloading a single file that contains all needed Python packages and then automatically downloads the appropriate files from the GSAS-II svn server. See [wiki:LinuxSingleStepInstaller these instructions] for more details.

See [wiki:LinuxSingleStepInstaller these instructions] for more details. This is only available for 64 bit Linux dists.

    23 GSAS-II will run with any distribution of Python, provided it is version 2.7.x or >=3.6, and provided you have the GSAS-II required packages, which include wxPython, !NumPy, !SciPy, matplotlib and PyOpenGL; some other packages are required for optional functionality; see [https://gsas-ii.readthedocs.io/en/latest/#required-packages here for more information on package requirements in GSAS-II.]

    25 Provided you can satisfy these requirements, then Python dists from Redhat, Debian, Ubuntu,... will work fine. (For some notes on package installation with older versions of Linux, see [wiki:"InstallLinux-prev"].) Likewise, alternate Python distributions from [https://python-xy.github.io/ Python(x,y)], [https://www.enthought.com/product/canopy/ Enthought Canopy] and [https://www.activestate.com/activepython ActiveState ActivePython] should work fine, but none have been tested in many years.

    2727You will also need subversion (svn) to download GSAS-II files. All Linux dists offer this (also in Anaconda).

    66 or an error message about a missing symbol... In this case, you have a choice. You can try to modify your Linux installation to have appropriate libraries (which may be older compatibility versions or updates) or compile the GSAS-II files locally. To do the latter you will need to have the Python scons file and the Linux gfortran compiler installed.

If you are using 32-bit Linux (where we are no longer generating binaries) you will have to compile yourself.
