Previous versions (see [browser:ChangeLog]):
The pfixtools have been currently successfully compiled and installed on the following platorms:
Linux: gentoo, debian etch, debian lenny, arch linux, centos 6.x
MacOS X 10.5 (Leopard), 10.6 (Snow Leopard)
dns lookup crashed on debian lenny due to a bug in the version of libunbound shipped in the distribution. A workaround is to manually install a more recent version of the library (known to work with libunbound 1.4).
Other platforms might work with some Makefile tuning if gcc is available.
The following libraries are required to build and run the pfixtools:
The following are build-time dependencies:
gcc: 4.0 or later
xmlto, docbook-xsl and asciidoc to build the documentation (this is only a stub of documentation)
To install the pfixtools, just run
make all doc and
sudo make install.
If you don’t want to compile all the tools, you can run
make toolname and
sudo make install-toolname. You can also specify the installation prefix and a sandbox path
sudo make install prefix=/my/prefix DESTDIR=/my/sandbox.
