SWI-Prolog for Linux


Compiling SWI-Prolog

If you want to compile SWI-Prolog for your system yourself you could also use the new 5.11.X version.

Download the sources here:

Be sure that you installed all necessary libraries on your system. You can use the following apt-get command:

sudo apt-get install binutils coreutils gcc grep libc6-dev libgmp3-dev libncursesw5-dev libreadline5-dev autoconf make sed curl chrpath unixodbc-dev libxext-dev libice-dev libjpeg62-dev libxinerama-dev libxft-dev libxpm-dev libxt-dev pkg-config libssl-dev zlib1g-dev

Java Version

Don't use OpenJDK. To avoid a lot of problems you should stay with the original Java version from Sun/Oracle

If you are running Ubuntu 10.4 this can be done by:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb lucid partner"
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

Be sure to uninstall OpenJDK first.

Current version from the Ubuntu repositories

In case you would like to use current Ubuntu version 5.8.0 make sure to install the plunit library, too. See here for instructions. And here for the 5.8.3 sources.
