[slicer-users] Slicer on Linux ?

Hi Everybody,

I did build vtk on a Red Hat Linux 7.0 and it worked only with one
version of the Mesa libraries. I had not succeeded with the most
current one. Regarding the actual build of slicer I tried once with the
instructions from the web but it appears that there are some header
files missing. I then downloaded the latest version of slicer and I did not
find the source files, only pre-compiled binaries, I believe for Solaris.
Am I missing somethins? Do I have to specifically ask for source
code?

Many thanks!

Fernando
