We strongly recommend using a Linux platform to work through these exercises, since this is currently the most extensively tested and most easily supported platform for the CCA tools. If this is not possible, or you have a specific need to use another platform while working through these exercises, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org discuss the best way to proceed. We're also interested to hear what platforms you would like to run your CCA applications on in the longer term in order to help us focus our porting and testing efforts.
The requirements to build the CCA tools on Linux platforms are listed below. Requirements for other platforms will vary somewhat.
We have on occasion observed problems with the Ccaffeine GUI interface hanging (most often while populating the palette as the GUI starts up). This seems to happen less often with version 1.4 than with more recent versions.
