Building and installing HHVM on CentOS 6.3
(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WARNING: Instructions are out of date.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.)
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
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/
[ $? -eq 0 ];then
echo "this gcc configure is success"
echo "this gcc configure is failed"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/mpc/lib:/usr/local/gmp/lib:/usr/local/mpfr/lib/ make && make install [ $? -eq 0 ] && echo install success
5. set up the gcc env:
Paste the following lines
/usr/local/gcc/lib/ /usr/local/mpc/lib/ /usr/local/gmp/lib/ /usr/local/mpfr/lib/
Move Old GCC and Replace With New Version
mv /usr/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc_old mv /usr/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++_old mv /usr/bin/c++ /usr/bin/c++_old ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/gcc /usr/bin/gcc ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/g++ /usr/bin/g++ ln -s -f /usr/local/gcc/bin/c++ /usr/bin/c++ cp /usr/local/gcc/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.17 /usr/lib64/. mv /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6 /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.bak ln -s -f /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6.0.17 /usr/lib64/libstdc++.so.6
you could run gcc --version to check if the current gcc version is gcc4.7.3, and also need to check g++, to see if the version is changed to g++4.7.3 too.
The version of CMake which comes with CentOS6.3 is too old for the latest HHVM which requires CMake version >= 2.8.7. Either find another RPM from a nearby distro, or try using @jackywei's instructions for installing CMake 18.104.22.168 from https://github.com/jackywei/HOW-TO-BUILD-HHVM-WiKi/wiki/Build-&-Install-CMake-22.214.171.124-in-CentOS6.3
(This does not apply to Fedora 19.)
Getting HipHop source-code
git clone https://github.com/facebook/hhvm.git --depth=1 cd hhvm export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr #export CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=`pwd`/../usr cd ..
Building third-party libraries
Make sure that your system time is correct, otherwise ./configure will fail.
git clone git://github.com/bagder/curl.git --depth=1 cd curl ./buildconf ./configure --prefix=$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
svn checkout http://google-glog.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ google-glog cd google-glog ./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH make sudo make install cd ..
There may be issues with 1.0.17 and your version of centos. If so, use 1.0.16
wget https://launchpad.net/libmemcached/1.0/1.0.17/+download/libmemcached-1.0.17.tar.gz tar -xzvf libmemcached-1.0.17.tar.gz cd libmemcached-1.0.17 ./configure --prefix=$CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH make sudo make install cd ..
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.
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.
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
cd hhvm git submodule update --init --recursive cmake . make
The hhvm binary can be found in
The Hack language
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)
