Preparing the Sources
Additional to the software mentioned in README you'll need the following programs installed on your system:
cmake >= 2.8
If these preliminaries are met, you should run
which will find all installed dune modules as well as all dune modules (not installed) which sources reside in a subdirectory of the current directory. Note that if dune is not installed properly you will either have to add the directory where the dunecontrol script resides (probably ./dune-common/bin) to your path or specify the relative path of the script.
On your project and all uninstalled DUNE source modules found the script will then calls the GNU autoconf/automake to create a ./configure-script and the Makefiles. Afterwards that configure script will be called and the modules will be build using make all
Most probably you'll have to provide additional information to dunecontrol (e. g. compilers, configure options) and/or make options.
The most convenient way is to use options files in this case. The files defining three variables:
AUTOGEN_FLAGS flags passed to autogen CONFIGURE_FLAGS flags passed to configure MAKE_FLAGS flags passed to make
An example options file might look like this:
#use this options to autogen, configure and make if no other options are given AUTOGEN_FLAGS="--ac=2.50 --ac=1.8" #Forces automake 2,50 and autoconf 1.8 CONFIGURE_FLAGS="CXX=g++-3.4 --prefix=/install/path" #force g++-3.4 as compiler MAKE_FLAGS=install #Per default run make install instead of simply make
If you save this information into example.opts you can path the opts file to dunecontrol via the --opts option, e. g.
dunecontrol --opts=example.opts all
To get a full list of available configure flags just run
dunecontrol configure --help
after running at least dunecontrol autogen
for further options.
The full build-system is described in the dune-common/doc/buildsystem (SVN version) or under share/doc/dune-common/buildsystem if you installed DUNE!
