Installs from Open Source Astronomy for Win32/Cygwin cd 1
Disk space required for installation is 21.27 Mb


This package should be installed first and contains the basic shared libraries and tools to support installation of the rest of the Open Source Astronomy distribution.

The default location for all non-rpm packages is in the /opt/astro directory tree. If you do not have sufficient space on the / partition you can create a link to another partition. The GUI installer offers to do this the first time it is used. You must login as root to run the installer for this step. If you wish to install subsequent packages using you normal login, make sure that you change the owner/group permissions on /opt/astro to allow it.
