Building and installing HHVM on Ubuntu 14.04
Ubuntu 14.10 Utopic
Please Note: You must be running a 64-bit OS to compile & install HHVM.
Using sudo or as root user: (it is recommended that you run
sudo apt-get update and
sudo apt-get upgrade first, or you may receive errors)
sudo apt-get install autoconf automake binutils-dev build-essential cmake g++ gawk git \ libboost-dev libboost-filesystem-dev libboost-program-options-dev libboost-regex-dev \ libboost-system-dev libboost-thread-dev libboost-context-dev libbz2-dev libc-client-dev libldap2-dev \ libc-client2007e-dev libcap-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdwarf-dev libelf-dev \ libexpat-dev libgd2-xpm-dev libgoogle-glog-dev libgoogle-perftools-dev libicu-dev \ libjemalloc-dev libmcrypt-dev libmemcached-dev libmysqlclient-dev libncurses-dev \ libonig-dev libpcre3-dev libreadline-dev libtbb-dev libtool libxml2-dev zlib1g-dev \ libevent-dev libmagickwand-dev libinotifytools0-dev libiconv-hook-dev libedit-dev \ libiberty-dev libxslt1-dev ocaml-native-compilers libsqlite3-dev libyaml-dev libgmp3-dev \ gperf libkrb5-dev libnotify-dev
Downloading the HHVM source-code
git clone git://github.com/facebook/hhvm.git --depth=1 cd hhvm git submodule update --init --recursive
Please ensure that your machine has more than 1GB of RAM. Expect a long compilation time if you are compiling on a virtual machine with one virtual core.
cmake -DMYSQL_UNIX_SOCK_ADDR=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock . make -j [number_of_processor_cores] # eg. make -j 4 sudo make install
The installed hhvm binary can be found in
If any errors occur, you may have to remove the
CMakeCache.txt file 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 the error persists, try to remove as explained above.
If you want to run the regression tests, you will first need to install some locales. These locales should be sufficient, although may be more than are actually needed:
sudo locale-gen en_EN sudo locale-gen en_UK sudo locale-gen en_US sudo locale-gen en_GB sudo locale-gen de_DE sudo locale-gen fr_FR sudo locale-gen fa_IR sudo locale-gen zh_CN.utf8 sudo locale-gen zh_CN
There are 2 families of regression tests. There are about 5000 tests in all. All tests should pass. It takes about 100 CPU minutes to run them all, but the test runner will run them in parallel, using 1 thread per core:
pushd hphp test/run quick test/run slow popd
