        Building Caucus

Once you have downloaded the Caucus source code, you must build (compile) it on your server.  This release is known to build properly on

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 and CentOS 5 (and higher).
  • RedHat Fedora 6 and higher.
  • Debian (Sarge)
  • Solaris 9
  • MacOS X 10.4 ("Tiger")

Requirements

  • C development tools (compiler, make, etc.)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or higher, including the "developer files" libraries and header files.  MyODBC is not needed.
  • Java 1.5 or higher.  (Only required for new XML-compatible archive/restore functionality.)

Build Steps

The detailed build documentation is contained in the INSTALL.TXT file, which is included with the Caucus source code.  Like most open-source packages, it basically consists of:

  1. Determining any special configuration settings.
  2. Running "./configure"
  3. Running "make"
This produces a Caucus "kit" in the single file caucus5.tar.  From here, proceed to the installation instructions.
