Build from source

If you just want to play with running footpatch (and possibly hacking at the code), use the VM. Dependencies for olders versions of Infer can (and have) broken or disappeared, and can cause building from source to be problematic.

If you really want to build from source, here is some guidance. Building is only tested on Ubuntu 14.04 and Infer v0.9.3. There is no support for other versions of Infer at this time. Install the dependencies

If you have all the dependencies installed, running ./ should be enough.


You need at least the following dependencies:

# install opam
add-apt-repository ppa:avsm/ppa
apt-get update
apt-get install opam

# additional deps
opam depext conf-autoconf.0.1
opam depext conf-m4.1
opam depext camlzip.1.05

# java
sudo apt-get install default-jdk
sudo apt-get install default-jre

For projects tested, you need to do at least:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade libstdc++6

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-installer
sudo apt-get install gradle

sudo apt-get install clang
sudo apt-get install subversion

Known good package versions

These package versions are known to be good for the source build release, but may have updated constraints in opam that make it hard to obtain this configuration.
