3.2 Installing the utilities

The following steps are necessary for a complete installation. You may need root access for these.

  1. Install the utilities by invoking

    make install install-info

    These targets indicate:

    Installs all programs into their configured locations (see section Where GNATS lives).

    Installs `info' files into their configured locations (see section Where GNATS lives).

    After you have installed GNATS, you can remove the object files with

    make clean

  2. If you do not have Emacs installed on your GNATS server, this step should be skipped.

    Place the following lines in the file `default.el' in your Emacs lisp library, or instruct your local responsible parties to place the lines in their `.emacs':

    (autoload 'send-pr "gnats"
       "Command to create and send a problem report." t)
    (autoload 'edit-pr "gnats" 
       "Command to edit a problem report." t)
    (autoload 'view-pr "gnats"
       "Command to view a problem report." t)
    (autoload 'query-pr "gnats"
       "Command to query information about problem reports." t)
    (autoload 'unlock-pr "gnats"
       "Unlock a problem report." t)
    (autoload 'gnats-dbconfig-mode "gnats"
      "Major mode for editing the `dbconfig' GNATS configuration file." t)
    (add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\

  3. If you want people who are logged into the GNATS server itself to be able to use the send-pr tool to submit problem reports, you need to create a configuration file for send-pr on the server. See section The send-pr.conf configuration file.
