    16 OpenGL and OpenAL are provided by numerous compatible driver frameworks.  These should already be installed on your system, though some Windows users may need to acquire them separately.  For GNU/Linux we recommend: 
    17  * '''[http://www.mesa3d.org/ Mesa] (7.6+)''' with direct rendering, test with "glxinfo|grep direct" 
    18  * '''[http://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal.html OpenAL-soft] (1.8)''' or any OpenAL 1.1 library, provides 3d audio and hardware abstraction 
    19  
    20 To provide robust and stable cross platform support, PySoy is built on [http://www.gnome.org/ Gnome Desktop] libraries.  Most GNU/Linux systems should already have these libraries installed. 
    21  * '''glib (2.18+)''' provides numerous thread-safe, cross platform functions and the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GObject GObject type system] 
    22  * '''gdk (2.18+)''' cross-platform windowing and input handling, commonly packaged as part of [http://www.gtk.org/ GTK] 
    23  * '''[http://www.cairographics.org/ cairo] (1.8+)''' 2d graphics library which we use for font and SVG rendering 
    24  * '''[http://www.pango.org/ pango] (1.8+)''' text layout and rendering library 
    25  
    26 We also use a handful of multimedia libraries: 
    27  * '''[http://glew.sourceforge.net/ glew] (1.4+)''' provides clean cross-platform OpenGL extension handling 
    28  * '''[http://xiph.org/ libogg] with libvorbis, and libtheora''' provides audio and video processing 
    29  
    30 The [http://ode.org/ Open Dynamics Engine (ODE)] is currently required, though we are working on replacing this with internal lighter-weight physics functions that can run on lower powered devices. Check the documentation that came with the PySoy version you've downloaded for what version of ODE is required as ODE's API changes in incompatible ways between versions.

     16See INSTALL in both the libsoy and pysoy source trees.  This file contains our current dependencies and easy copy/paste command lines for most popular GNU/Linux distributions.
