Installing nasm from source =========================== Installing nasm is pretty straightforward on UN*X systems with Perl and GNU tools installed. If you checked out source from CVS you will need to run autoconf to generate configure, otherwise you don't have to. $ autoheader $ autoconf Then run configure to detect your platform settings and generate makefiles. $ ./configure You can get information about available configuration options by running `./configure --help`. If configure fails, please send bug report with detailed platform information to <firstname.lastname@example.org> and we will try to help you asap! If everything went okay, type $ make to build nasm, ndisasm and rdoff tools, or $ make everything to build the former plus the docs. You can decrease the size of produces executables by stripping off unnecessary information, to achieve this run $ make strip If you install to a system-wide location you might need to become root: $ su <enter root password> then $ make install optionally followed by $ make install_rdf Or you can $ make install_everything to install everything =) Thats it, enjoy! PS. Installation instructions for other platforms are underway.
