Mozart is available for both Unix- and Windows-based systems. If you use Windows, you need Windows 95 or NT, if you prefer Unix, you can choose between binary tarballs, source tarballs and RPM packages for Linux. To install Mozart, you have to download the newest version from the Mozart Homepage.
The Oz Programming Environment is based on the Emacs editor. So make sure you have GNU Emacs version 19.28 or better before installing Mozart! If you aren't using Emacs yet, you can download it for free for both Unix- and Windows-based systems from GNU Emacs.
For a detailed description of the installation process refer to the installation manual. This manual also tells you how to make your browser `Mozart application enabled'.
As Mozart is constantly being improved, maybe you will encounter some problems during the installation. If there is a problem you cannot solve, don't hesitate to contact the Oz-Support-Newsgroup
ps.oz.support located at
A common problem on Windows is that something goes wrong with the socket. So make sure you have the network installed properly and you have an up-to-date version of
winsock.dll. If this file is missing, you will not be able to run Oz, so download it from www.microsoft.com.
There is a bad interaction between Oz-Applets and several programs on Windows NT. Sometimes the applets will not start, so if you encounter this problem, you should try to kill some background programs and most probably everything will work fine afterwards.
On Unix systems a common problem is that Oz fails to establish a network connection. Of course Mozart does not need a permanent connection to the network! But it tries to contact localhost, and if there is an error message, this means that your local box is illconfigured. So try to add
to the file etc/hosts.
If you encounter problems not mentioned above, please contact the newsgroup to get help. This also enables the developers to improve Mozart!
