On a Fedora Linux system (and presumably many other Linux distributions), say
yum search faustto find out about the Faust-related packages. On a Mac with MacPorts installed, say this:
port search faustAt the time of this writing (5/23/2010), the two packages available on the Mac are faust and pure-faust. Thus, to install the main Faust package, say port install faust (on your Mac). On Fedora 11 Linux, at the time of this writing, the available packages are faust, faust-doc, faust-kate, and faust-tools.
The versions in the Linux and MacPorts distributions tend to be significantly behind the latest. To check out the latest CVS version at sourceforge, say
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/faudiostream co .I have always done this and find it to be generally quite reliable. From time to time, update and reinstall as follows:
cd Faust cvs -q update make sudo make install
