+  <li>get the installation script <br> grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-install.sh</li>
+  <li>DD-MM-YYYY is the date of the release (e.g. 10_02_2004)</li>

+For installation, run the install script with --help option:<br>
-1. get the file 
-     grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-bin.tar.gz 
+    <ul>
+  <li>sh grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-install.sh --help  </li>
+  or
+  <li>./grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-install.sh --help  </li>
-2. get the installation script
-     grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-install.sh
+Or without help, directly:<br>
+    <ul>
+  <li>sh grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arch-install.sh grass57-DD-MM-YYYY-arc-bin.tar.gz</li>
+  or

+The following libraries are required:
+  <li>libpq (e.g. libpq3-7.3.4-2mdk.i586.rpm)  </li>

+    ln -s /usr/lib/libpq.so.3 /usr/lib/libpq.so.2<br>
+    ldconfig
+Instead of (or in addition to) libtk.so and libtcl.so, you might have
+libtk8.4.so and libtcl8.4.so. In this case, type instead:<br><br>
+    ln -s /usr/lib/libtk8.4.so /usr/lib/libtk.so.0<br>
