XDS-viewer is a open source program that was written by Michael Hoffer (Kabsch lab).
I was able to compile the program (version 0.5) for RedHat Enterprise Linux versions 3, 4 and 5 (or rather, for their CentOS equivalents) by the following recipe:
# the X11 development libs are needed; in case they are not available use something like: # yum install libX11-devel libXext-devel # also check out http://doc.trolltech.com/4.5/requirements-x11.html ! wget http://download.qtsoftware.com/qt/source/qt-x11-opensource-src-4.5.0.tar.gz # unpack the tarfile and run "./configure -static"; then "gmake -j <number of processes>". # Warning: this takes hours and up to 10 GB disk space! # It may be possible to add e.g. the -no-qt3support -no-exceptions options but I didn't try. wget http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.6/cmake-2.6.3-Linux-i386.sh # unpack and note where the bin directory is wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/x/xd/xds-viewer/xds-viewer-0.5.tar.gz # unpack, then edit compile.sh and add a line like # PATH=<path to cmake bin directory>:/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.5.0/bin:$PATH # compile.sh then gives the binary in the build/bin directory
The resulting binaries are available at ftp://turn5.biologie.uni-konstanz.de/pub .
