55+---------------------

57+### Installing library dependencies:
58+# The easiest and recommended way is to use your package manager to install
59+# all build dependencies for the drizzle package. This will always
60+# install an up to date list of dependencies.
61+# If drizzle is not yet included in your distribution, then please configure
62+# your package manager to use these Drizzle repositories:
63+# DEB: http://docs.drizzle.org/installing/ubuntu.html
64+# RPM: http://docs.drizzle.org/installing/redhat.html
65+
66+
67+# Then start the build process with executing
68+sudo apt-get build-dep drizzle
69+# or
70+yum-builddep drizzle
71+
72+### Compiling:
73 # If you got the source from bzr, run:
74 ./config/autorun.sh
75 # The following steps are the same regardless of where you got the source
