To compile DDNet yourself, you can follow the instructions for compiling Teeworlds.
DDNet requires additional libraries, that are bundled for the most common platforms (Windows, Mac, Linux, all x86 and x86_64). Instead you can install these libraries on your system, remove the
bam should use the system-wide libraries by default. You can install all required dependencies and bam on Debian and Ubuntu like this:
apt-get install libsdl2-dev libfreetype6-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libogg-dev libopus-dev libopusfile-dev bam
If you have the libraries installed, but still want to use the bundled ones instead, you can specify so by running
bam config curl.use_pkgconfig=false opus.use_pkgconfig=false opusfile.use_pkgconfig=false ogg.use_pkgconfig=false.
The MySQL server is not included in the binary releases and can be built with
bam server_sql_release. It requires
libboost-dev, which are also bundled for the common platforms.
Note that the bundled MySQL libraries might not work properly on your system. If you run into connection problems with the MySQL server, for example that it connects as root while you chose another user, make sure to install your system libraries for the MySQL client and C++ connector. Make sure that
mysql.use_mysqlconfig is set to
true in your config.lua.
