Midnight Commander Binaries

While normally binaries are provided by distributions who choose to ship mc along with their packages, we do provide binaries for several most popular distributions, mostly for reference and testing purposes. However, please be warned, that we do not offer any support for these. If you encounter any problems, you are generally going to be asked to rebuild the sources from current git master and check whether the problem is already fixed or not. Another rule of thumb is to always use search before opening new tickets.

Redhat-based distros

Warning!!! The RPM build host was destroyed and therefore is temporarily nonoperational. Please wait until it will be restored at a new location.

The binaries are normally provided by the distributions, who choose to ship mc along with their packages. We have, however, set up a machine which builds nightly RPM packages from the snapshot of the master Git branch at around 4:30 (GMT+3) for a number of platforms and architectures (EL4, EL5, FC10, FC11, FC12, both x86 and x86_64). Please check out the NightlyBuilds for details.

The very same machine that is currently being used as a buildhost for nightly builds also provides release builds for all currently supported Redhat distributions. Be warned, however, that these builds possible do not offer the same stability that is expected from distro builds, so please encourage the acceptance of the new versions of mc in the distribution in the first place.

The installation is identical to the process, described on the NightlyBuilds page with the notable exception, that you will have to use mc-releases-el.repo and mc-releases-fc.repo respectively instead.

Mac OS


Unofficial build for Microsoft Windows

Attention! MC development team is not responsible for that build.
