At the moment, HipHop can only run on 64 bits systems.

Packages installation

Using sudo or as root user:

sudo apt-get install git-core cmake g++ libboost-dev libmysqlclient-dev libxml2-dev libmcrypt-dev libicu-dev openssl binutils-dev libcap-dev libgd2-xpm-dev zlib1g-dev libtbb-dev libonig-dev libpcre3-dev autoconf libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-filesystem-dev wget memcached libreadline-dev libncurses-dev libbz2-dev libc-client2007b-dev libevent-dev

Note: libmemcached in the apt repository for Ubuntu 9.10 is out of date (0.31 and 0.39 is required), therefore you need to build it separately.

Getting HipHop source-code

mkdir hiphop
cd hiphop
git clone git://github.com/facebook/hhvm.git
cd hhvm
export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=`pwd`/../
git submodule update --init --recursive
cd ..

Building third-party libraries

ICU4

wget http://download.icu-project.org/files/icu4c/4.2.1/icu4c-4_2_1-src.tgz
tar -xvzf icu4c-4_2_1-src.tgz
cd icu/source
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
make install
cd ../../

libCurl

Make sure that your system time is correct, otherwise ./configure will fail.

wget http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.20.0.tar.gz
tar -xvzf curl-7.20.0.tar.gz
cd curl-7.20.0
cp ../hhvm/third-party/libcurl.fb-changes.diff .
patch -p1 < libcurl.fb-changes.diff
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
make install
cd ..

libmemcached

wget http://launchpad.net/libmemcached/1.0/0.43/+download/libmemcached-0.43.tar.gz
tar -zxvf libmemcached-0.43.tar.gz
cd libmemcached-0.43
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
make install
cd ..

Building HipHop

cd hhvm
cmake .

hphp binary can be found in `hphp/hhvm/hhvm`.
