Hello Rashmi

To install GSL and in fact any GNU software there is a standard procedure to be followed.

However, it would probably save you some time if you check for rpm (or whatever Solaris calls software packages) availability for GSL on your operating system. If there is no GSL package available then you can follow this procedure.

1. Download GSL to a directory of your choice (for example /home/mylibs/GSLLatest) 2. Extract the compressed file (this will create a directory like /home/mylibs/GSLLatest/gsl-1.6........)
3. Start a terminal and switch to this directory
4. Type "./configure"
5. Once it returns to the command prompt (it will take some time) type "make" (as you see it, just the word make and hit enter) 6. Switch to root (or super user mode) by typing "su" and the root credentials (Supposedly you have this information, if not then a slight variation of this procedure needs to be followed.)
7. Type "make install"

The last step will install the compiled binaries to the correct places in your filesystem...From this point on you can try the GSL example code exactly as it is written in the online help...

Hope this helps...
