Hi, I've place the RPMS I built for RedHat 9 at
Please, pay attention to the files that are over there.
Some dependencies need to be satisfied.
README This file
Under misc are certain libraries that these abiword RPMS need.
BE WARNED! I've tried to keep the number of libraries you need to
to a minimum if you're using RedHat 9. I have limited time and can't
more. If you can do other build options, please do so! :)
Libraries that you will need.
Tipically, you won't need to install the -devel or source rpms,
there because they're both convenient but also required, as stated by
GNU GPL and GNU Lesser GPL.
AbiWord RPMS as built on different ReadHat versions (I'm only able to
RedHat 9, so if you want other releases, help by contributing, not
Even though I sign my keys with gpg key ID:

... you may decide to trust only enough to check for file corruption.
You can do that with rpm --checksig file.rpm (although it may complain
missing gpg keys) or sha1sum file.rpm and compare with the lists I add
README This file
These rpms are built against libraries contained in RedHat's GNU/Linux
9 CDs. This means support for GTK+/GNOME 2.2.x and font antialiasing.
There's little likelihood that it may work on older RedHat releases
you recompile the source rpm with: rpm --rebuild
AND have fairly recent GTK+/GNOME 2.2.x libraries.
Note if using rpm >= 4.1: rpmbuild --rebuild abiword-1.9.1-1.src.rpm
The plugins are now collected in two packages:
- extra import/export
- extra tools
Have you installed the packages from misc/? You will need some of
You should just need to grab one and only one of these:
abiword-gtk-1.99.1-1.i686.rpm (optimized for i686)
abiword-gnome-1.99.1-1.i386.rpm (gnome support)
abiword-gnome-1.99.1-1.i686.rpm (gnome support, optimized for i686)
The gnome builds require a recent gal. I'm a nice guy, you can fetch
here (at misc/) as well.
These will give extra flavours to the juice:
abiword-clipart (ooo pictures!)
abiword-plugins-impexp (extra document import/export plugins)
REQUIRES libwpd and libgsf
abiword-plugins-tools (extra plugins providing some tools)
REQUIRES ots and aiksaurus
abiword-embeddable (I'm not really sure this really works right
Get the src.rpm in the SRPMS dir.
