(This page is a work in progress. Instructions are for building the HipHop VM, or HHVM for CentOS 6.3 64bit. The instructions will also apply to Fedora 19.)

WARNING: Instructions are out of date. hhvm now requires gcc 4.8. Read Building-and-installing-hhvm-on-centos-6.x instead.

If your build environment does not have internet access, You could refer to this to build your hhvm in centos6.3 by scripts: https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-HHVM-in-CentOS6.3-(w-o-internet-access-for-build-env.)

Packages installation

sudo yum install git svn cpp make autoconf automake libtool patch memcached gcc-c++ cmake wget boost-devel mysql-devel pcre-devel gd-devel libxml2-devel libxslt-devel expat-devel libicu-devel bzip2-devel oniguruma-devel openldap-devel readline-devel libc-client-devel libcap-devel binutils-devel pam-devel elfutils-libelf-devel elfutils-libelf-devel-static ImageMagick-devel libevent-devel
  • note: ImageMagick version 5.7+ is needed. you can get a more recent version from remi:
yum install ImageMagick-last* --enablerepo=remi

libmcrypt

Although CentOS doesn't provide libmcrypt, we can borrow from EPEL and get the files we need.

rpm -ivh http://dl.fedoraproject.org/pub/epel/6/i386/epel-release-6-8.noarch.rpm
yum install libmcrypt-devel

Installing GCC 4.7

The version of GCC which comes with CentOS is too old for the C++11 features used by HipHop. Either find another RPM from a nearby distro. Hip-Hop requires GCC min version 4.7

1. build & install gmp:

wget https://gmplib.org/download/gmp/gmp-5.1.3.tar.bz2

tar jxf gmp-5.1.3.tar.bz2 && cd gmp-5.1.3/

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gmp

make && make install

cd ..

2. build & install mpfr:

wget http://www.mpfr.org/mpfr-current/mpfr-3.1.2.tar.bz2

tar jxf mpfr-3.1.2.tar.bz2 ;cd mpfr-3.1.2/

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mpfr -with-gmp=/usr/local/gmp

make && make install 

cd ..

3. build & install mpc:

wget http://www.multiprecision.org/mpc/download/mpc-1.0.1.tar.gz

tar xzf mpc-1.0.1.tar.gz ;cd mpc-1.0.1

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mpc -with-mpfr=/usr/local/mpfr -with-gmp=/usr/local/gmp

make &&make install

cd ..

After build & install these libs, you could start to build & Install gcc4.7.3:

4. build & install gcc 4.7.3

wget http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gcc/gcc-4.7.3/gcc-4.7.3.tar.bz2

tar jxf gcc-4.7.3.tar.bz2 ;cd gcc-4.7.3

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/gcc -enable-threads=posix -disable-checking -disable-multilib -enable-languages=c,c++ -with-gmp=/usr/local/gmp -with-mpfr=/usr/local/mpfr/ -with-mpc=/usr/local/mpc/

if

[ $? -eq 0 ];then

echo "this gcc configure is success"

else

echo "this gcc configure is failed"

fi

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/mpc/lib:/usr/local/gmp/lib:/usr/local/mpfr/lib/

make && make install

[ $? -eq 0 ] && echo install success

5. set up the gcc env:

vi /etc/ld.so.conf.d/gcc-4.7.3.conf

Paste the following lines

/usr/local/gcc/lib/
/usr/local/mpc/lib/
/usr/local/gmp/lib/
/usr/local/mpfr/lib/

Reload Config

ldconfig

Move Old GCC and Replace With New Version

mv /usr/bin/gcc  /usr/bin/gcc_old

mv /usr/bin/g++  /usr/bin/g++_old

mv /usr/bin/c++ /usr/bin/c++_old

ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/gcc  /usr/bin/gcc

ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/g++  /usr/bin/g++

ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/c++ /usr/bin/c++

cp /usr/local/gcc/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.17 /usr/lib64/.

mv /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.bak

ln -s -f /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.17 /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6

6. finished.

you could run gcc --version to check if the current gcc version is gcc4.7.3, and also need to check g++, to see if the version is changed to g++4.7.3 too.

Installing CMake

The version of CMake which comes with CentOS6.3 is too old for the latest HHVM which requires CMake version >= 2.8.7. Either find another RPM from a nearby distro, or try using @jackywei's instructions for installing CMake 2.8.10.2 from https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-&-Install-CMake-2.8.10.2-in-CentOS6.3

(This does not apply to Fedora 19.)

Getting HipHop source-code

git clone https://github.com/facebook/hhvm.git --depth=1
cd hhvm
export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr
#export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=`pwd`/../usr
cd ..

Building third-party libraries

libCurl

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

git clone git://github.com/bagder/curl.git --depth=1
cd curl
./buildconf
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
sudo make install
cd ..

Note: If you're building a version of cURL older than 7.28.0 (for whatever reason), you'll need to apply the patch in third-party to update it prior to the make step.

cat ../hhvm/third-party/libcurl-7.22.1.fb-changes.diff | patch -p1

Google glog

svn checkout http://google-glog.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ google-glog
cd google-glog
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
sudo make install
cd ..

libmemcached

There may be issues with 1.0.17 and your version of centos. If so, use 1.0.16

wget https://launchpad.net/libmemcached/1.0/1.0.17/+download/libmemcached-1.0.17.tar.gz
tar -xzvf libmemcached-1.0.17.tar.gz
cd libmemcached-1.0.17
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
sudo make install
cd ..

JEMalloc 3.0

wget http://www.canonware.com/download/jemalloc/jemalloc-3.5.1.tar.bz2
tar xjvf jemalloc-3.5.1.tar.bz2
cd jemalloc-3.5.1
./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH
make
sudo make install
cd ..

tbb and libdwarf

As of this writing, libdwarf is not available with CentOS 6.3, and the version of libtbb is much too old. Both these packages also suffer the problem of not having install targets, so getting them on your system is a bit more cumbersome.

tbb

wget 'http://threadingbuildingblocks.org/sites/default/files/software_releases/source/tbb40_20120613oss_src.tgz'
tar -zxf tbb40_20120613oss_src.tgz
cd tbb40_20120613oss
make

sudo mkdir -p /usr/include/serial
sudo cp -a include/serial/* /usr/include/serial/

sudo mkdir -p /usr/include/tbb
sudo cp -a include/tbb/* /usr/include/tbb/

sudo cp build/linux_intel64_gcc_cc4.7.3_libc2.12_kernel2.6.32_release/libtbb.so.2 /usr/lib64/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/libtbb.so.2 /usr/lib64/libtbb.so
cd ..

The exact path to your generated libtbb.so.2 may be slightly different depending on your version of gcc, libc, and the kernel, but that should be close.

libdwarf

wget 'http://www.prevanders.net/libdwarf-20140413.tar.gz'
tar xzvf libdwarf-20140413.tar.gz
cd libdwarf/libdwarf
./configure
make
sudo cp libdwarf.a /usr/lib64/
sudo cp libdwarf.h /usr/include/
sudo cp dwarf.h /usr/include/
cd ../..

Note: You may need to check out c6a2ce4cc11ef16c53a19e9fd6c2685f189ac709^ and ensure that elfutils-libelf-devel is installed.

Refreshing library cache

ldconfig

Building HipHop

cd hhvm
git submodule update --init --recursive
cmake .
make

Running programs

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

The Hack language

See https://github.com/facebook/hhvm/wiki/Building-the-Hack-Typechecker.

Errors

If any errors occur, it may be required to remove the CMakeCache.txt directory in the checkout.

If your failure was on the make command, try to correct the error and run make again, it should restart from the point it stops. If don't, try to remove as explained above.

If cmake or make are unable to find/compile the Imagick extension, use this gist: https://gist.github.com/sinaa/f6bd004ecad37411c238

If you met some issues on build, You could also try to upgrade your Boost to 1.50 version and GCC to 4.6.1 version: You could follow this instruction for build BOOST: https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-&-install-Boost-1.50-in-CentOS-(CentOS5.2-&-6.3-are-both-verified)
