Compile on CentOS

This guide was tested on clean installation of CentOS 5.8, 6.6 and 7 (1503).
Everything is done from command line, that means everything can be done over ssh on remote server.

In my case was only base system installed, that means after startup and login i was already in command line and working directory was my home directory.
For database support you need database development files for database that will be used.
If you are not in command line then you need to go here some way (ie if gnome is installed then open terminal).

1. Prerequisites.

For PtokaX compile you need make (tool controlling executable generation from sources), g++ (c++ compiler), zlib (compression library used to save hub badwith) and Lua (programming language used for scripting).
They can be installed using package manager (Note: to install packages using package manager you need root permissions).

  • a. Make, g++, zlib
    In my case was installed but to be sure you can run: yum install make gcc-c++ zlib-devel
  • b. Lua
    When you have CentOS 6 or 7 then you can install Lua with this command: yum install lua-devel
    On CentOS 5 it is complicated because Lua is not available in CentOS packages.
    I'm used RPMforge as easy way how get it. How to add RPMforge to your repositories is here.
    When you have RPMForge added then you can install Lua with this command: yum install lua-devel
  • c. Database support (optional)
    When you want PostgreSQL (CentOS 7 required) then install development files with command: yum install postgresql-devel
    When you want SQLite then install development files with command: yum install sqlite-devel
    When you want MySQL (CentOS 6 only) then install development files with command: yum install mysql-devel
    When you want MariaDB (CentOS 7 only) then install development files with command: yum install mariadb-devel

2. Downloading source and compile.

  • a. PtokaX source
    Download it with command: curl -O http://www.PtokaX.org/files/0.5.1.0-nix-src.tgz
    Unpack downloaded archive with command: tar -xf 0.5.1.0-nix-src.tgz
    Now we have in actual directory new directory PtokaX. Go to that directory with command: cd PtokaX
  • b. PtokaX compile
    • PtokaX without database support
      When you have CentOS 5.x i386 then compile PtokaX with command: make centos5-32
      When you have CentOS 5.x x86_64 then compile PtokaX with command: make centos5-64
      When you have CentOS 6 or 7 then compile PtokaX with command: make centos6
    • PtokaX with PostgreSQL (CentOS 7 required) database support
      Compile PtokaX with command: make -f makefile-postgres centos6
    • PtokaX with SQLite database support
      Compile PtokaX with command: make -f makefile-sqlite centos6
    • PtokaX with MySQL (CentOS 6 only) or MariaDB (CentOS 7 only) database support
      Compile PtokaX with command: make -f makefile-mysql centos6

3. Setup and run.
