#REDIRECT [[Requirements]]
The following software needs to be installed on a computer for it to run VDrift.
VDrift is known to compile on:
* 32-bit x86
* 64-bit x86
* PowerPC
==Operating Systems==
Ports for VDrift are available for these operating systems:
* Linux
* FreeBSD
* Mac OS X
* Windows
==Device Drivers==
It is advisable to always use the latest version of the device driver for [[Hardware requirements#Graphics Device|graphics cards]].
Compilation and execution depend on the following libraries:
* [http://bulletphysics.org Bullet Physics library] - only the following are required:
** Bullet Collision
** Bullet Dynamics
** Bullet SoftBody
** LinearMath
* cURL
* [http://glew.sourceforge.net/ GLEW]
* [http://xiph.org/ogg/ Ogg]
* [http://www.opengl.org/ OpenGL]
* [http://www.libsdl.org/ SDL]
* [http://www.libsdl.org/projects/SDL_image/ SDL_image]
* [http://www.ferzkopp.net/joomla/content/view/19/14/ SDL_gfx]
* [http://xiph.org/vorbis/ Vorbis]
* [http://think-async.com/ asio]
* [http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/release/libs/bind/bind.html Boost]
* pthread
To [[Compiling|compile]], it is necessary to install the header files for these libraries.
On some operating systems, such as Linux and FreeBSD, these libraries must be installed on the system first before VDrift will run. On Mac OS X and Windows, all the necessary library files are packaged with VDrift.
==Build Tools==
To compile VDrift, you'll also need
* [http://gcc.gnu.org/ GNU C++ compiler] (version 3.2 or greater)
* [http://www.scons.org/ SCons]
Other build tools are sometimes required, and alternative build options are sometimes available, depending on the target operating system (see [[Compiling]] for details).
