Getting the CLEX File Manager
Method 1: Downloading Linux RPM packages
All our RPMs are signed using this GPG key. RPM file sizes are between 100 and 150 KB.
Latest version 4.6.patch6
These packages were built on Fedora 19 and tested on Fedora 17.
These are RHEL/CentOS 5 packages.
Method 2: Compiling from sources
This is the way to install CLEX on any compatible Unix or Unix-like system. An ANSI/ISO C compiler is necessary to
compile CLEX from the source code. You will also need the
ncurses library which
is part of most (if not all) system distributions.
Download the source (file size is about 240 kilobytes) and unpack it. Run
make. Finally run
make install as root.
INSTALL file for detailed instructions.
In case you want to build an RPM package, the spec file is already included. All you need is
rpmbuild -tb clex-4.X.Y.tar.gz (as root).

There are several other sources. Check their CLEX version numbers to make sure they are up to date. Many of them are not.
