   22 Compilation
   23 -----------
   24 
   25 Edit the Makefile to set the paths for installation (INSTDIR).
   26 
   27 To compile all possible versions (using GTK1 or GTK2 or GTK3 if available) then
   28 use:
   29 
   30 make all
   31 
   32 
   33 To compile a specific version or versions then specify the names of the versions
   34 that are required.  The possible version names are:
   35 
   36 procmeter3-xaw      - Traditional Athena Widgets version.
   37 
   38 procmeter3-gtk1     - GTK1 version.
   39 
   40 procmeter3-gtk2     - GTK2 version.
   41 
   42 procmeter3-gtk3     - GTK3 version.
   43 
   44 procmeter3-log      - Non-GUI data-logging version.
   45 
   46 procmeter3-lcd      - Not an X Window system GUI version but using small LCD
   47                       device with LCDproc server (http://lcdproc.omnipotent.net).
   48 
   49 
   50 For example to compile the Athena version and the GTK2 version use the command:
   51 
   52 make procmeter3-xaw procmeter3-gtk2
   53 
   54 
   55 Installation
   56 ------------
   57 
   58 To install all files in the default locations just use:
   59 
   60 make install
   61 
   62 
   63 To install all of the files into a directory tree that is rooted somewhere other
   64 than the usual place (e.g. in /tmp/procmeter3) use the DESTDIR option:
   65 
   66 make install DESTDIR=/tmp/procmeter3
   67 
   68
