Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

#REDIRECT[[Building_FlightGear_-_Devuan]]
HowTo build FlightGear 2.2.0 or bleeding edge development version, hereinafter simply called ''GIT'', on GNU/Linux Debian '''Stable''' 6.x (Squeeze) and '''Testing'''/'''Unstable''' (Wheezy).
+
 
+
Even on Debian '''Oldstable''' 5.x (Lenny) this guide will work for both, 2.2.0 and GIT. At least until one or more dependencies of the GIT version are changing or beening added.
+
 
+
If you don't want to make your hands dirty, have a look at [[Scripted_Compilation_on_Linux_Debian/Ubuntu]].
+
 
+
 
+
== Requirements and Preparations ==
+
You need an OpenGL capable graphics including a proper installed driver.<BR>
+
 
+
Also a bunch of packages (and some of their dependencies) are required:
+
*gcc, g++, make, automake1.9, pkg-config
+
*mawk (or gawk)
+
*cmake  (min. version 2.6.0-5, for Etch available on backports.debian.org!)
+
*git, subversion, wget
+
*freeglut3-dev, libgl1-mesa-dev, libxrandr-dev
+
*libxi-dev, libxmu-dev, libxext-dev
+
*libopenal-dev (for Lenny see [[#libopenal|libopenal]]), libalut-dev
+
*libjpeg62-dev, libtiff4-dev, libpng12-dev
+
*libboost1.37-dev (min 1.37, 1.40 available for Lenny on backports.debian.org)
+
 
+
During installation packages ''simgear-dev'' and ''openscenegraph-dev'' *must not* be installed. They can safely be re-installed after compilation.
+
 
+
 
+
== Build and install ==
+
Because we are going to install versions different to the ones in the repositries it is recommended to install FG-2.2.0 and/or GIT in a place independent to the base system such as /usr/local/FG-2.2.0, /opt/FG-2.2.0 or in a subdirectory of your $HOME. I suggest to make it writeable by the user that there is no need to become root for the <code>make install</code> commands. I'll use <code>$prefix</code> as a placeholder for this directory. <BR>
+
Another one will be <code>$srcdir</code>, it stands for the absolute path to the directory which contains the folders of the various source codes. So in the following instructions you have to replace these with the local paths or even <code>export</code> them during the process.
+
 
+
Follow the instructions to fetch the sources and the data needed by FlightGear and the commands to build/install each source.
+
 
+
Have in mind that the data is a relatively large download (GIT about 3.5 GB and 2.2.0 300 MB). So, to save some time, it is a good idea to fetch it while building the sources.
+
 
+
For some basic info on git commands for FlightGear users we have a [[Git#For_dummies|git for dummies]] section.
+
 
+
 
+
=== libopenal ===
+
'''Lenny only!''' The libopenal-dev package in Lenny is too old for [[fgcom]]. For FlightGear it does work but not all features (like doppler) are available, so installing an up to date version is recommended anyway.
+
cd $srcdir
+
wget http://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal-releases/openal-soft-1.11.753.tar.bz2
+
tar xjf openal-soft-1.11.753.tar.bz2
+
cd openal-soft-1.11.753/build
+
cmake  -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH="$prefix" ..
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
=== plib ===
+
Latest SVN is [http://www.mail-archive.com/flightgear-devel@lists.sourceforge.net/msg20793.html recommended], yet package plib1.8.5-dev for Squeeze does work as well.
+
cd $srcdir
+
svn co https://plib.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/plib/trunk plib
+
cd plib
+
sed s/PLIB_TINY_VERSION\ \ 5/PLIB_TINY_VERSION\ \ 6/ -i src/util/ul.h
+
./autogen.sh
+
./configure --prefix=$prefix
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
=== OpenSceneGraph ===
+
<u>2.2.0 only:</u>
+
cd $srcdir
+
svn co -r 12072 http://www.openscenegraph.org/svn/osg/OpenSceneGraph/trunk OpenSceneGraph
+
 
+
<u>GIT only:</u>
+
Mostly the latest revision from OpenSceneGraph svn does suit. However, sometimes this does not work and as a fallback one can go backwards through the revisions.<BR>
+
At the moment (February 2011) this is the case. '''Highest reported working revision is 12072''', checkout the source as shown above at ''2.2.0 only''.
+
cd $srcdir
+
svn co http://www.openscenegraph.org/svn/osg/OpenSceneGraph/trunk OpenSceneGraph
+
 
+
<u>2.2.0 and GIT:</u>
+
mkdir osg-build && cd osg-build
+
cmake -D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE="Release" -D CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS="-O3" -D CMAKE_C_FLAGS="-O3" \
+
    -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH="$prefix" $srcdir/OpenSceneGraph
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
== Note ==
+
From this point forward when providing the "LDFLAGS" string, you should use the path specific to your installation. For 32-bit installations this will probably be the path ending in /lib. In a 64-bit installation, this '''may''' be the path ending in /lib64, but doesn't have to be. You must verify this for your build, because you do not have to include both paths in the following compilations.
+
 
+
 
+
=== SimGear ===
+
<u>2.2.0 and GIT:</u>
+
cd $srcdir
+
git clone git://gitorious.org/fg/simgear.git simgear
+
cd simgear
+
 
+
<u>2.2.0 only:</u>
+
git checkout -b releases/2.2.0 origin/releases/2.2.0
+
 
+
<u>2.2.0 and GIT:</u>
+
.autogen.sh
+
./configure --prefix=$prefix CPPFLAGS=-I$prefix/include LDFLAGS="-L$prefix/lib -L$prefix/lib64"
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
=== FlightGear source ===
+
<u>2.2.0 and GIT:</u>
+
cd $srcdir
+
git clone git://gitorious.org/fg/flightgear.git flightgear
+
cd flightgear
+
 
+
<u>2.2.0 only:</u>
+
git checkout -b releases/2.2.0 origin/releases/2.2.0
+
 
+
<u>2.2.0 and GIT:</u>
+
./autogen.sh
+
./configure --prefix=$prefix CPPFLAGS=-I$prefix/include/ LDFLAGS="-L$prefix/lib -L$prefix/lib64"
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
=== FlightGear data ===
+
<u>2.2.0 only:</u>
+
At the time of writing, 2.2.0 is not yet released, there is no tar archive for the data available. Test pilots for this release are advised to use the ''release/2.2.0'' branch from git. The following URL for wget will be updated, if it is not working, as soon as 2.2.0 is released.
+
cd $prefix
+
wget http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/flightgear/ftp/Shared/FlightGear-data-2.2.0.tar.bz2
+
tar xjf FlightGear-data-2.2.0.tar.bz2
+
 
+
<u>GIT only:</u>
+
For slow/unstable internet connections it is recommended to download the [[Git#fgdata.bundle|fgdata.bundle]] instead of cloning the data.<BR>
+
FlightGear's primary git server on gitorious is known to have trouble cloning the data, the mapserver's mirror usually has no problems:
+
cd $prefix
+
git clone git://mapserver.flightgear.org/fgdata
+
 
+
 
+
=== Trial run ===
+
When all the builds are done and the data download has finished it is time for a test run:
+
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$prefix/lib/:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
+
$prefix/bin/fgfs --fg-root=$prefix/fgdata
+
 
+
For the future, if you want to start FlightGear from command line have a look at [[fgfsrc]], if you prefer a graphical user interface continue with [[#fgrun|compiling fgrun]]. Have in mind that fgfs need to find our self compiled libraries and therefore we have to tell the linker (ld) where to find them. That is what the first line here does.
+
 
+
 
+
== Optional Software ==
+
=== fgrun ===
+
To build [[fgrun]] two more package is required:
+
*libfltk1.1-dev
+
 
+
cd $srcdir
+
svn co http://fgrun.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fgrun/trunk fgrun
+
cd fgrun/fgrun/
+
./autogen.sh
+
./configure --prefix=$prefix  [CPPFLAGS=-I$prefix/include/ LDFLAGS="-L$prefix/lib -L$prefix/lib64"]
+
make install
+
 
+
 
+
=== fgcom ===
+
For [[fgcom]] unfortunately there is one more dependency which cannot be solved with packages on '''Lenny''', see [[#libopenal|libopenal]].
+
 
+
cd $srcdir
+
svn co https://appfgcom.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/fgcom/trunk fgcom
+
cd fgcom/src
+
make INSTALL_BIN=$prefix/bin INSTALL_DIR=$prefix/fgcom \
+
    PLIB_PREFIX=$prefix OPENAL_PREFIX=$prefix install
+
