SVN snapshots compilation

To build SIM you should have automake-1.5 and autoconf-2.53, however, autoconf 2.13 works too, you just need to hack admin/cvs.sh to turn off "exit 1" on version check. Note that you will be unable to compile icq plugin without SSL support.

Requirements

Compilation

  • make -f admin/Makefile.common
  • ./configure --prefix=<your_installation_path>
  • make
  • sudo make install
  • Start SIM :-)

If your system doesnt support 'sudo' command try to use 'su' instead.
See "./configure --help" for more options, specially for --enable-final and --disable-debug.

To compile plugins you should run:

  • cd plugins/<plugin_name>
  • make
  • sudo make install

MINGW compilation

Requirements


Toolchain setup

  • Install Mingw. You need to install gcc-core, g++, binutils, w32api, mingw32-make. Add mingw's bin directory to %PATH%
  • Install Msys. You need MSYS-1.0.10.exe
  • Compile Q..3/Windows. Extract sources somewhere. Then create dirs "include", "include/private" in this folder. Then run configure-mingw.bat. Add Q..3's bin directory to %PATH%
  • Compile and install zlib. specify --prefix=/mingw option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install libxml2. specify --prefix=/mingw option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install libxslt. specify --prefix=/mingw option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install OpenSSL. Extract sources, then run "ms\mingw32 no-asm". Then install as specified in INSTALL.W32 file into your Mingw installation dir.
  • Install Perl. Add Perl's bin directory to %PATH%
  • Install zip. Extract and put zip.exe in some dir in your %PATH%
  • Install Flex. Extract and put flex.exe in some dir in your %PATH%.
  • Install Aspell. You need this only if you want to compile spell plugin. Download development package for win32 aspell. Then extract include folder into mingw root folder, then put lib\libaspell-15-dll.lib into lib\libaspell.a, lib\libpspell-15-dll.lib into lib\libpspell.la in mingw root folder.

Compilation and Installation

  • make -f admin/Makefile.common unfortunally doesn't work under Msys. This must be performed under Cygwin or some other *nix environment.
  • ./configure --disable-kde --enable-win --with-qt-dir=... --with-ssl-dir=...
  • make
  • make INSTALL=install DESTDIR=/yor/destdir. After this you must manually put sim files in this layout:

/icons
/pict
/plugins
/po
/sounds
/styles
/libsim-0.dll
/sim.exe

  • Or you can compile NSIS installer script install_win32\mingw\sim.nsi

Win32-MSVC compilation

Requirements

or

  • fastJar for creating the jisp's, %pathToFastJar% to path
  • Bison && Flex for lexing the .ll files
  • aspell - Optional, for spellchecker plugin

Compilation and Installation

  • Compile Q..3/Windows. Extract sources somewhere. Then create dirs "include", "include/private" in this folder. Then run configure-msvc2005.bat -debug (or without Release). Add Q..3's bin directory to %PATH%
  • Build qt3\tools\msg2qm
  • Put msg2qm.exe in path for compiling the po-files or simple copy it to %windir%\system32\ .
  • Compile and install zlib. specify --prefix=c:/libs option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install libxml2. specify --prefix=c:/libs option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install libxslt. specify --prefix=c:/libs option to ./configure script, then make&&make install.
  • Compile and install OpenSSL. Extract sources, then run "ms\msvc no-asm". Then install as specified in INSTALL.W32.
  • Environment vars (examples) to set:
    • QTDIR="C:\qt3"
    • QTLIB="qt-mt3.lib"
  • Environment vars (examples):
    • QTDIR="C:\qt3"
    • Path=%Path%;%QTDIR%\bin
    • QTLIB="qt-mt3.lib"
    • OPENSSL_DIR="c:\openssl"
  • Visual C++ Configuration:
    • set Executable Directories
      • Java-jdk\bin
    • set Include Directories
      • FLEX-2.5.4A-1-BIN\INCLUDE (or newer version)
      • aspell-0.60.2\interfaces\cc
    • set Library Directories:
        • %QTDIR%\Lib



compilation with CMake

Requirements

  • TortoiseSVN for getting the Sources
  • CMake 2.4.2
  • Qt3 for your platform
  • A supported compiler (linux: gcc; win32: MinGW, Visual Studio >= 7)
  • LibXML2
  • LibXSLT
  • zlib
  • Iconv (when you want to compile SIM-IM on win32)
  • OpenSSL (optional, required for some plugins)
  • ASpell (optional, required for spell plugin)
  • Once you've installed all requried packages, make sure you've set the following environment variables correct-
    • QTDIR (the path to your Qt3 installation)
    • CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH (all paths to the headers of the installed packages - for example D:\Programm\GnuWin32\Include;D:\Programm\OpneSSL\Include)
    • CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH (all paths to the libraries of the installed packages - for example D:\Programm\GnuWin32\Lib;D:\Programm\OpenSSL\Lib\MSVC)
  • After you've checked out the sources, create a new directory 'sim-im-build'.
  • Now you can call cmake (or cmakesetup on win32) by switching into 'sim-im-build':
    • cmake ..\sim-im
  • When cmake is ready and all required packages were found you can start compiling sim with 'make' (or mingw-32make or nmake)
