Hugin Compiling Fedora
Otherwise, recent-ish hugin snapshots and other panorama-related software can usually be found at the fedora panorama repository. To subscribe just follow this panorama release link, use the Software Installer option, and next time you do a Software Update hugin will be upgraded to the latest snapshot.
If you want to compile hugin yourself, just follow the instructions in the INSTALL_cmake file, you will need these development packages (Oct 2007): libpano13-devel zlib-devel libtiff-devel libjpeg-devel libpng-devel gettext-devel wxGTK-devel boost-devel cmake desktop-file-utils OpenEXR-devel gcc-c++
The source RPM package contains an hugin.spec file which is both the build documentation and the script for an automated build (other linux packaging systems work basically the same way).
