They also provide a little help in form of a little text file, but with this, it still took me half a day for my first installation. Most issues I got were based on version mismatches, because debian and also ubuntu use older versions of the required libraries.
First download the GLUEscript source from sourceforge.
A second tool you will need to get this running is premake. This is also a sourceforge project (you can use the binary version of it right away).
After downloading, I copied the premake binary into the glue/src folder.
So now we can start with fetching the dependencies which debian can fulfill.
sudo apt-get install libnspr4-0d libnspr4-0d-dbg libnspr4-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libwxgtk2.8-dev libssl-dev libiodbc2-dev libmysql++-dev
In addition to that I needed a library called poco version 1.3.5 (all repositories I found just provided versions up to 1.3.3 -> those don’t work). So get the source from http://pocoproject.org/download/ (the complete version). Compiling that should make no trouble cause all the dependencies are already installed.
/tmp$ cd poco-1.3.5-all/ /tmp/poco-1.3.5-all$ ./configure Configured for Linux /tmp/poco-1.3.5-all$ make /tmp/poco-1.3.5-all$ sudo make install
Now let’s get back to configuring GLUEscript. All configuration is done via lua script which will than be consumed by premake. The config file I needed to edit was the premake.lua file:
-- Check NSPR if ( string.len(nspr_dir) == 0 ) then print("Using the NSPR library which is part of GLUEscript") dopackage("nspr") -- build our own NSPR nspr_dir = "../nspr/include" nspr_lib = "nspr" nspr_lib_dir = project.libdir else print("You are using your own NSPR library: ") nspr_dir = "/usr/include/nspr" print("nspr include: " .. nspr_dir) print("nspr lib: " .. nspr_lib_dir .. "/" .. nspr_lib) end
I copied the whole paragraph to just make it easier to find the position. Important is the added row in the else part.
nspr_dir = “/usr/include/nspr”
This is needed because debian has a different file structure for header files than the script expects it.
After that we are done with configuring. To actually start the build process you have to run premake first.
./premake gnu make
The output will be generated to the following directory:
So far the makefile does not a an installation part. So if you want to install this you have to do it by yourself.
PS: This only works for the 0.0.1 version. So far I didn’t get any more recent svn version running.
