3.2. How to get packages for FreeBSD

Caudium 1.0 and Pike 7.0 are in the official FreeBSD ports. There are also available as a binary package in the FreeBSD 4.7 CDROMs.

Note

Caudium 1.2 and Pike 7.2 are available as ports tarballs at ftp://ftp.oav.net/pkg_freebsd/ports.tar.gz. If you take the latest ports from this site use the following command:


$ cd /tmp
$ fetch ftp://ftp.oav.net/pkg_freebsd/ports.tar.gz
Receiving ports.tar.gz (32468 bytes): 100%
32468 bytes transferred in 0.6 seconds (53.87 kBps)
$ su -
# cd /usr/
# tar xzf /tmp/ports.tar.gz
      

Another note, since Caudium and Pike have been added recently to FreeBSD port tree, you must have an up to date port tree. See the FreeBSD handbook at http://www.freebsd.org/handbook/cvsup.html about cvsup handling.

As root, go to /usr/ports/www/caudium10 to install current stable version, /usr/ports/www/caudium12 to install the next stable version in Release Candidate process, or /usr/ports/www/caudium-dev to install the current developer's version. The script will automatically fetch and install Pike, try to detect what library you've installed and compile all the necessary libs for Caudium and Pike.

Here is the current Pike / Caudium options supported by the current port :

There are some options related only to Pike, like the GNOME / Mesa ones that are uninteresting to Caudium, but exist for Pike support.

A little example on how to install Caudium on FreeBSD :


# cd /usr/ports/www/caudium12
# make WITH_MOST=yes WITH_MYSQL=yes WITH_OPTIMIZED_CFLAGS=yes install clean
