Installing SpecBAS for Raspberry PI
A quick guide to getting the current version of SpecBAS up and running on a Raspberry PI
Downloading SpecBAS for Raspberry Pi
A binary debian package containing the current version of SpecBAS for Raspberry Pi can be found at http://freestuff.grok.co.uk/specbas-pi.deb
Running SpecBAS for Raspberry Pi
You must be running a linux distro with hard floating point support, such as the Raspbian Wheezy distribution that Raspberry recommends.
Type "wget http://freestuff.grok.co.uk/specbas-pi.deb" to fetch the debian package to your home directory.
Then type "sudo dpkg -i specbas-pi.deb" to install it.
This will create a link in the desktop menu to SpecBAS (it's placed in the Programming menu).
Upon first execution, SpecBAS will create its working directory; /home/username/specbas (if this folder doesn't already exist). A number of useful files and folders will also be set up within this directory (containing fonts, demo programs, and a copy of the SpecBAS Reference Manual). This folder is effectively the root folder for SpecBAS/SpecOS, where SpecBAS will load files from, and save files to. SpecBAS is unaware of any files located outside of this folder.
Compiling your own version
The SpecBAS source files are available through SVN at http://alistairsserver.no-ip.org/websvn/listing.php?repname=SpecBAS. The bass audio library is also available from http://www.un4seen.com/
Removing SpecBAS for your Raspberry Pi
In the unlikely event that you wish to remove SpecBAS from your Raspberry Pi, the command "sudo dpkg -r specbas" will take care of that for you.
