Compiling and Installing Yate from SVN on FreeBSD
Follow the steps below to install and compile the latest version of Yate from SVN source on FreeBSD9.
Prerequisites for compiling the core
For fetching and building Yate from SVN you will need the following:
- A subversion(svn) client to fetch Yate from SVN source.
pKg_add -r subversion
- Basic software development tools:
- The autoconf configuration script builder. After fetching Yate you will have to run autogen.sh to generate the configure file, but if autoconf is missing, an error will be given:
- Please install Gnu autoconf to build from CVS.
cd /usr/ports/devel/autoconf make install clean
- Development libraries for all optional modules in Yate you want to compile like:
- If you want to register users in a database you need libraries like:
- Read more about them and others in modules page.
Get the sources
Once you have the svn client installed getting the sources is a simple command:
cd /usr/src svn checkout http://voip.null.ro/svn/yate/trunk yate cd yate
This will fetch a copy of the SVN TRUNK in a new directory called yate.
Prepare and configure the sources
Run autogen.sh script to generate the configure file.
./autogen.sh Finished! Now run configure. If in doubt run ./configure --help
This script will warn if autoconf is missing and will prepare a configure script for you if everything is OK.
You can now run the configure script:
./configure --without-fdsize --with-libpq=/usr/local checking for local operating system type... FreeBSD checking for libraries directory name... lib checking for g++... g++ ...
Use --without-fdsize so that the verification if a handler in Yate is selectable, to not fail for FreeBSD.
If you wish to keep your users in PostgreSQL database use --with-libpq to give the path for the library because the default is /usr for other Linux systems.
You can give command ./configure --help to see how you can use it and the descriptions of some of the useful variables.
Look at the configure output and check that all features you need are detected. If not, install what is missing.
Compile the sources
Use make command:
gmake LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/lib && gmake install gmake -C ./engine all gmake: Entering directory `/usr/src/yate/engine' ........
Use LDFLAGS to set linker flags, if you have libraries in a nonstandard directory.
Check version of Yate:
./run -V Yate 4.2.1 alpha1
./run -vvvvv -CDo ... Yate engine is initialized and starting up on freeBSD ...
