How to install binary packages:
Download the correct package for your architecture ( run
uname -m to check if you're not sure).
Double click the package, or use a command line package manager (
dpkg -i <file> for ubuntu or debian,
yum install <file> for fedora, etc).
If on an Ubuntu or Debian system the package manager complains about missing dependencies, you can fix it by running
apt-get -f install, and then trying again the installation process.
You might also encounter a conflict with libqhy if you also installed indi packages.
This will be addressed properly in a future release, for now you can force the installation of PlanetaryImager:
sudo dpkg --force overwrite -i PlanetaryImager-<package-version>.deb
Building OSX bundles
An osx bundle is usually released together with binary snapshots and stable releases.
If you want to build a bundle from sources, however, you can either use the scripts in the
support directory, or even better use this scripts provided by Eric Vickery.
