Blackbox FAQ/Install And Compilation

This FAQ section covers questions related to installing and compiling Blackbox. Please avoid using the FAQ for technical support on these matters. See BlackboxCommunity for more appropriate places to discuss them, where you can get help faster and in an organized manner and perhaps even help fix potential bugs along the way.

See also: BlackboxDocumentation/CompilingBlackbox usually holds all the documented compilation issues. Pure compilation-related Q&A's are often moved there.

Do not add new questions here. Add them to /NewQuestions instead, so they can be reviewed and answered at least once.

However, feel free to add more answers to any question. Place your answer after any other answers, mark it with a bold A: and add a number if there is already at least one other answer (ie. A1:, A2:).

When in doubt about something, don't do anything or add a comment stating your concernes. Let others review the issue too.
