Compile on FreeBSD

This guide was tested on clean installation of FreeBSD 10.1.
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.
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 gmake (tool controlling executable generation from sources), tinyxml (library used to read and write xml files), libiconv (converts text from one encoding to another encoding) 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. Gmake, tinyxml and libiconv
    Install them with command: pkg install gmake tinyxml libiconv
  • b. Lua
    When you want Lua 5.3 then install it with command: pkg install lua53
    When you want Lua 5.2 then install it with command: pkg install lua52
    When you want Lua 5.1 then install it with command: pkg install lua51

2. Downloading source and compile.

  • a. PtokaX source
    Download it with command: fetch http://www.PtokaX.org/files/0.5.1.0-freebsd-src.tgz
    Unpack downloaded archive with command: tar -xf 0.5.1.0-freebsd-src.tgz
    Now we have in actual directory new directory PtokaX. Go to that directory with command: cd PtokaX
  • b. PtokaX compile
    When you have Lua 5.3 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake freebsd
    When you have Lua 5.2 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake freebsd52
    When you have Lua 5.1 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake freebsd51

3. Setup and run.
