OLA on OS X
This page describes how to get OLA working on OS X, by downloading and compiling the source code.
If you just want to get OLA working and aren't a developer consider using the Mac Installer (.dmg file) to install a pre-compiled version available here.
Use Mac Ports to install stuff
$ port install pkgconfig cppunit unittest-cpp protobuf-cpp
Set some env vars
set $PATH to point to something sane:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig export CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include/" export LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib/"
Optionally install microhttpd and ctemplate
If you want the web interface you need these
- http://www.gnu.org/software/libmicrohttpd/ [>= 0.4] (Currently you need to install libgcrypt too for this library to work)
sudo port install libgcrypt
or you can disable https support (which works with OLA) by using the configure line "./configure --enable-https=no"
- Make sure both of these are made AND installed before running "./configure" on OLA otherwise it will not detect the libraries and ignore all the HTTP server code
Checkout OLA or Download the tarball
git clone http://www.nomis52.net/git/lla cd lla
wget $ola_url tar -zxf $ola_file cd lla
If this is the first time run with -i to install the missing files
Do the usual steps
./configure make make check sudo make install
Snow Leopard builds binaries as 64bit by default. If you need to build as 32bit use
make CPPFLAGS="-arch i386" LDFLAGS="-arch i386"
Note you'll need to do the same when you run make check:
make CPPFLAGS="-arch i386" LDFLAGS="-arch i386" check
If you get an error like the following:
/bin/sh ./libtool --tag=CC --mode=compile gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I/opt/local/var/macports/software/protobuf-cpp/2.0.3_0/opt/local/include/ -g -O2 -c -o ltdl.lo ltdl.c ./libtool: line 464: CDPATH: command not found /Users/simonn/lighting/lla/libltdl/libtool: line 464: CDPATH: command not found /Users/simonn/lighting/lla/libltdl/libtool: line 1142: func_opt_split: command not found libtool: Version mismatch error. This is libtool 2.2.6, but the libtool: definition of this LT_INIT comes from an older release. libtool: You should recreate aclocal.m4 with macros from libtool 2.2.6 libtool: and run autoconf again.
Your system uses a different version of libtool. Run:
glibtoolize --ltdl -c -f
and then start from the autoreconf step again. This problem shouldn't in releases >= 0.7.0
