Installing Faust

On a Fedora Linux system (and presumably many other Linux distributions), say

  yum search faust
to find out about the Faust-related packages. On a Mac with MacPorts installed, say this:
  port search faust
At 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 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
  sudo make install
