Basic requirements, for direct use through the command-line interface

Oval has been primarily implemented for Unix platforms :
  • Perl >= 5 must be installed, and the perl command found in PATH.
  • /usr/bin/env is used in the first magic line of the startup script.

Additional requirements, for use of the graphic user interface

Requirements above must be fullfilled, because the graphic user interface (gui) is currently implemented as a front-end for the command-line interface.
The gui relies on Python and Qt. Is has only been tested and used with the configuration below. Other versions, especially more recent ones, may or may not work.

  • Python 2.4.3
  • PyQt 3.16
  • Qt 3.3.6
