 h1. Normal downloads 

 CHIRP is distributed as a series of automatically-generated builds. Any time we make a change to CHIRP, a build is created for it the next day. Thus, CHIRP is versioned by the date on which it was created, which makes it easy to determine if you have an older build. We don't put experimental things into CHIRP before they are ready, except where specifically called out with a warning. Thus, you do not need to worry about finding a stable version to run. *You should always be on the latest build available.*

 h3. MacOS Notes h1. Live CD 

 A Linux-based LiveCD is available with CHIRP pre-installed. This will boot on almost any system and provide a highly-compatible CHIRP environment without the need for fussing with a driver. It will not modify your system in any way.

 h1. Install notes 

 h2. Windows 

 ^1^ CHIRP is supported on Windows XP/Vista/7/8. 

 ^2^ Windows XP users may need to follow the instructions "here": if you have trouble starting CHIRP. 

 h2. Mac OS X 

 ^3^ MacOS users must install the runtime once "KK7DS Python runtime": before running CHIRP. After it is installed, the runtime does not need application will execute. This only needs to be downloaded or installed each time. Download the "KK7DS Python runtime": for MacOS 
 * once. 

 ^4^ OS X support is limited to Intel architecture. PowerPC is not supported. 

 ^5^ is unsigned. With default security settings, you will need a special procedure to run it: [[MacOS Tips#Application-Security-in-109x|Application Security in 10.9]]. 

 More useful tidbits can be found at [[MacOS Tips]]. 

 h3. Ubuntu h2. Linux Users 

 If you are using Ubuntu linux (or a compatible variant such as Mint) you should install and use the PPA like this: 

 <pre>sudo apt-add-repository ppa:dansmith/chirp-snapshots 
 sudo apt-get update 
 sudo apt-get install chirp-daily</pre> 

 h3. Other Linux Users 

 If you don't run a distro for which we have packages, you can run CHIRP right from the tarball available through the link above. ^6^ Most modern distributions should have almost everything required to run chirp. Make sure you have +python-serial+ and +python-libxml2+ packages installed. For more information about using CHIRP under Linux, see the [[Running_Under_Linux|Running Under Linux]] page 

 h1. Live CD 

 A Linux-based LiveCD is available with CHIRP pre-installed. This will boot on almost any system and provide a highly-compatible CHIRP environment without the need for fussing with a driver. It will not modify your system in any way.
