Install under Ubuntu 11.10

Install Python Poker Network

Project depends on python-poker-network project. Since this is ugly "glue it together" type of project, we will install python-poker-network from repositories and then link certain files to our project files.

First of all make sure MySQL server installed first:

sudo apt-get install mysql-server

Start by installing python-poker-network:

sudo apt-get install python-poker-network

Install bitcoind from David Armstrong repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stretch/bitcoin
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install bitcoin

Our implementation of python-poker-network software uses /dev/random. Check it if it produce a lot of data by default (cat /dev/random) - you need 1-5 Kb/s minumum. If this do not happen you need to install rng-tools:

sudo apt-get install rng-tools

And configure it to use initial data from /dev/urandom. To do this edit file /etc/default/rng-tools and insert following line at the end of the file:


Restart rng-tools by:

sudo /etc/init.d/rng-tools restart

Install Apache web server:

sudo apt-get install apache2

Create new virtual host config file:

sudo vim /etc/apache2/sites-available/room.conf 

With similar configuration:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName room

  <Proxy *>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
  ProxyPass /POKER_REST http://localhost:19384/POKER_REST retry=1
  ProxyPass / http://localhost:3000/ retry=1

Enable new settings:

sudo a2ensite room.conf 
sudo a2enmod proxy proxy_http
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Install Memcached:

sudo apt-get install memcached

Install GIT and build tools

sudo apt-get install git build-essential

Install and configure Room

Install Module::Install from Ubuntu repositories:

sudo apt-get install libmodule-install-perl

Install Catalyst and Catalyst::Devel and other libs from Ubuntu repositories:

sudo apt-get install libcatalyst-devel-perl libcatalyst-perl \
libcrypt-ssleay-perl libobject-signature-perl

Next you will need to install all dependencies for this project. Dependencies will be download from CPAN. Since there are a lot of them it may make sense to enable auto installation of dependencies. To do this, simply bring up a CPAN shell:

perl -MCPAN -e shell

And run these two commands in the CPAN shell:

o conf prerequisites_policy follow
o conf commit

To install all dependencies:

perl Makefile.PL
sudo make installdeps

Check output to see any errors. In my case I had to force-install DBIx::Class::FrozenColumns due failing some tests:

sudo cpan -fi DBIx::Class::FrozenColumns

Copy room-sample.conf to room.conf and edit it inserting correct login/passwords for pythonpokernetwork database, bitcoind, twitter, GA, etc.

Import new schema:

mysql -u root pythonpokernetwork < schema_dump.sql

Replace stock Python Poker Network source code with Room's code

Find where Python Poker Network and Python Poker Engine installed:

find /usr -name ""
find /usr -name ""

In my case it was /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages and /usr/share/pyshared. Rename existing pokernetwork and pokerengine folders into something else and create soft links to Room's code:

cd /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages
sudo mv pokerengine pokerengine.old
sudo mv pokernetwork pokernetwork.old
sudo ln -s ~/projects/Room/lib/ppn/pokerengine pokerengine
sudo ln -s ~/projects/Room/lib/ppn/pokernetwork pokernetwork

And repeat for /usr/share/pyshared.

Install Python bitstring and oauth2 packages:

sudo apt-get install python-pip 
sudo pip install bitstring 
sudo pip install oauth2

And restart poker server:

sudo /etc/init.d/python-poker-network restart

Start Room

From project's home folder run:

./script/ -r -f 

Navigate to http://room/ or whatever domain you created for this project.
