Compile on NetBSD

This guide was tested on clean installation of NetBSD 6.1.5.
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 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_add gmake tinyxml libiconv
  • b. Lua
    When you want Lua 5.3 then install it with command: pkg_add lua53
    When you want Lua 5.1 then install it with command: pkg_add lua51
  • c. Database support (optional)
    When you want PostgreSQL then install development files with command: pkg_add postgresql93-client
    When you want MySQL then install development files with command: pkg_add mysql-client

2. Downloading source and compile.

  • a. PtokaX source
    Download it with command: ftp http://www.PtokaX.org/files/0.5.2.2-nix-src.tgz
    Unpack downloaded archive with command: tar -xzf 0.5.2.2-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 Lua 5.3 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake netbsd
      When you have Lua 5.1 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake netbsd51
    • PtokaX with PostgreSQL database support
      When you have Lua 5.3 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-postgres netbsd
      When you have Lua 5.1 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-postgres netbsd51
    • PtokaX with SQLite database support
      When you have Lua 5.3 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-sqlite netbsd
      When you have Lua 5.1 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-sqlite netbsd51
    • PtokaX with MariaDB database support
      When you have Lua 5.3 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-mysql netbsd
      When you have Lua 5.1 then compile PtokaX with command: gmake -f makefile-mysql netbsd51

3. Setup and run.
