+Dependencies
+=====
+
+SINGA is developed and tested on Linux platforms with the following external libraries.
+
+gflags version 2.1.1, use the default setting for namespace (i.e., gflags).
+glog version 0.3.3.
+gtest version 1.7.0.
+google-protobuf version 2.6.0.
+openblas version >= 0.2.10.
+opencv version 2.4.9.
+zeromq version >= 3.2
+czmq version >= 3
+
+Tips:
+For libraries like openblas, opencv, older versions may also work, because we do not use
any newly added features.

+
+BUILDING SINGA SOFTWARE FROM SOURCES
+=====
+Build steps
+-----
+The build system of SINGA is based on GNU autotools.
+The common steps to build SINGA can be:
+
+	1.Extract source files;
+	2.Run configure script to generate makefiles;
+	3.Build and install SINGA.
+
+On Unix-like systems with GNU Make as build tool, these build steps can be summarized by
the following sequence of commands executed in a shell.
+
+	$ cd SINGA/FOLDER
+	$ ./configure
+	$ make
+	$ make install
+
+After executing above commands, SINGA library will be installed in the default directory.
+If you want to specify your own installation directory, use the following command instead.
+
+	$ ./configure --prefix=/YOUR/OWN/FOLDER
+
+The result of configure script will indicate you whether there exist dependency missings
in your system.
+If you do not install the dependencies, you can run the following commands.
+To download the thirdparty dependencies:
+
+	$ ./script/download.sh
+
+After downloading, to install the thirdparty dependencies:
+
+	$ ./thirdparty/install-dependencies.sh MISSING_LIBRARY_NAME1 YOUR_INSTALL_PATH1 MISSING_LIBRARY_NAME2
YOUR_INSTALL_PATH2
+
+If you do not specify the installation path, the lirary will be installed in default folder.
+For example, if you want to build zeromq library in system folder and gflags in /usr/local,
just run:
+	
+	$ ./thirdparty/install-dependencies.sh zeromq gflags /usr/local
+
+Another example can be to install all dependencies in /usr/local directory:
+
+	$ ./thirdparty/install-dependencies.sh all /usr/local
+
+Here is a table showing the first arguments:
+	
+	MISSING_LIBRARY_NAME	LIBRARIES
+	cmake					cmake tools
+	czmq*					czmq lib
+	gflags					gflags lib
+	glog					glog lib
+	lmdb					lmdb lib
+	OpenBLAS				OpenBLAS lib
+	opencv					OpenCV
+	protobuf				Google protobuf
+	zeromq					zeromq lib
+
+* : Since czmq depends on zeromq, the script offers you one more argument to indicate zeromq
location.
+	The installation commands of czmq can be:
+		$ ./thirdparty/install-dependencies.sh czmq  /usr/local /usr/local/zeromq
+	After the execution, czmq will be installed in /usr/local while zeromq is installed in /usr/local/zeromq.
