Installation directories

If you follow the manual, the files are installed into three directories independent of the architecture. The directory /opt/XSOXbigX takes the files which may be shared between machines of same architecture, the directory /etc/opt/XSOXbigX contains host specific files like license files, and the directory /var/opt/XSOXbigX contains output files like log files.

The following table shows all components of the software:

File Usage
Installation directory /opt/XSOXbigX
bin/ executable files
bin/xbigx shell script for executing …
bin/_xbigx … the real XbigX proxy program
bin/glxPlus shell script for starting OpenGL clients (option GLXplus)
bin/uninstall shell script for uninstalling
share/ architecture independent files
share/license_agreement license terms
share/manual manual in HTML format
Installation directory /etc/opt/XSOXbigX
Installation directory /var/opt/XSOXbigX

Before executing a program, please read the license terms and conditions in the included file

/opt/XSOXbigX/share/license_agreement

or the appropriate license file.

If you choose to install the files into other directories, you have to adjust the environment variables $XBIGX_HOME, $XBIGX_ETC, and $XBIGX_VAR in all shell scripts correspondingly.
