How To Compile

Linux

Prerequisites

You will need the following packages: boost, cmake (3.8 or higher), make, and git.

You will also need either GCC/G++, or Clang.

If you are using GCC, you will need GCC-6.0 or higher.

If you are using Clang, you will need Clang 5.0 or higher. You will also need libstdc++-6.0 or higher.

GCC setup, on Ubuntu
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install aptitude -y
  • sudo aptitude install -y build-essential g++-8 gcc-8 git libboost-all-dev python-pip
  • sudo pip install cmake
  • export CC=gcc-8
  • export CXX=g++-8
  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/furiousteam/BLOC
  • cd bloc
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./BLOCd --version
Clang setup, on Ubuntu
  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test -y
  • wget -O - https://apt.llvm.org/llvm-snapshot.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -

You need to modify the below command for your version of ubuntu - see https://apt.llvm.org/

  • Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/trusty/ llvm-toolchain-trusty 6.0 main"
  • Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/xenial/ llvm-toolchain-xenial 6.0 main"
  • Ubuntu 18.04 (Bionic)
  • sudo add-apt-repository "deb https://apt.llvm.org/bionic/ llvm-toolchain-bionic 6.0 main"

  • sudo apt-get update

  • sudo apt-get install aptitude -y

  • sudo aptitude install -y -o Aptitude::ProblemResolver::SolutionCost='100*canceled-actions,200*removals' build-essential clang-6.0 libstdc++-7-dev git libboost-all-dev python-pip

  • sudo pip install cmake

  • export CC=clang-6.0

  • export CXX=clang++-6.0

  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/furiousteam/BLOC

  • cd bloc

  • mkdir build

  • cd build

  • cmake ..

  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./BLOCd --version
Generic Linux

Ensure you have the dependencies listed above.

If you want to use clang, ensure you set the environment variables CC and CXX. See the ubuntu instructions for an example.

  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/furiousteam/BLOC
  • cd bloc
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./BLOCd --version

  • cd <your_bloc_directory>
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • set PATH="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\CMake\CMake\bin";%PATH%
  • cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" .. -DBOOST_ROOT=C:/local/boost_1_68_0 (Or your boost installed dir.)
  • MSBuild BLOC.sln /p:Configuration=Release /m

The binaries will be in the src/Release folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • cd Release
  • BLOCd.exe --version

Raspberry Pi 3 B+

The following images are known to work. Your operation system image MUST be 64 bit.

Known working images

Once you have a 64 bit image installed, setup proceeds the same as any Linux distribution. Ensure you have at least 2GB of ram, or the build is likely to fail. You may need to setup swap space.

Building
  • git clone -b master --single-branch https://github.com/furiousteam/BLOC
  • cd bloc
  • mkdir build
  • cd build
  • cmake ..
  • make

The binaries will be in the src folder when you are complete.

  • cd src
  • ./BLOCd --version
