PowerDNS is copyright 2012 by PowerDNS.COM BV & lots of contributors This file may lag behind at times. For most recent updates, always check http://doc.powerdns.com/changelog.html and http://wiki.powerdns.com Another good place to look for information is: http://doc.powerdns.com/compiling-powerdns.html To file bugs, head towards: http://wiki.powerdns.com/trac/newticket but first check existing ones: http://wiki.powerdns.com/trac/report/1 COMPILING --------- PowerDNS 3.0 and beyond depend on Lua and Boost. To get these libraries, install the relevant packages. On Debian and Ubunty, try: # apt-get install g++ libboost-program-options-dev libboost-serialization-dev libpqclient-dev libmysqlclient-dev libsqlite3-dev libpq-dev To compile a very clean version, use: $ ./configure --with-modules="" $ make # make install This generates a PowerDNS binary with no modules, except the bind backend, built in, and the pipe-backend available for runtime loading. When ./configure is run without --with-modules, the gmysql module is built-in by default and the pipe-backend is compiled for runtime loading. To add multiple modules, try: $ ./configure --with-modules="gmysql gpgsql" See http://rtfm.powerdns.com/compiling-powerdns.html for more details. Please don't use the 'mysql' backend, it is deprecated. Use the 'gmysql' one! SUBVERSION / CVS ---------------- If you need code from SVN read HACKING SOLARIS NOTES ------------- You need gcc 3.x, preferably 3.2! The 'Sunpro' compiler is currently not supported (patches are welcome if not too intrusive). If you encounter problems with the Solaris make, gmake is advised IPv6 is broken in Solaris 2.7, use 2.8 or higher for that. PowerDNS on Solaris 2.7 won't even serve AAAA records. FREEBSD NOTES ------------- gcc 2.95.x works. You need to compile using gmake - regular make only appears to work, but doesn't in fact. Use gmake, not make. pipebackend does not work due to bad interaction between fork and pthreads. Amazingly, running the Linux version under the linuxulator DOES work! LINUX NOTES ----------- None really. WIN32 NOTES ----------- See http://rtfm.powerdns.com/compiling-powerdns.html#ON-WINDOWS Needs Visual C++ --- After compiling, you may find the file 'pdns/pdns' helpful, we suggest you place it in /etc/init.d/ or your operating system's equivalent.
