95
<LI>Download the latest version of the Sylpheed package from
96
<A HREF="http://sylpheed.good-day.net/">http://sylpheed.good-day.net/</A></LI>
97
<LI>Untar the sourcefiles to a new directory</LI>

<LI>tar -xvfI sylpheed-.tar.bz2 (for tar.bz2) </LI>
100
<LI>cd to the new sylpheed- directory </LI>
101
<LI>Run ./configure to check your environment and create the installation make files </LI>
102
<LI>Run the 'make' program which will compile the sources. Do not proceed with this step if there are fatal errors in the previous step. Fatal errors indicate that things are missing in order to compile Sylpheed properly. </LI>
103
</UL>
104
<P>If the make process has completed, run "make install" (as root), to install the program and the supportfiles
