== Compiling on a 64 bit Linux ==
 +
Additional steps for compiling a MTA server on 64 bit Linux:
 +
===Install 32 bit libs for your 64 bit distro===
 +
For 64 bit Debian, this is achieved with:
 +
 
 +
apt-get install ia32-libs
 +
 
 +
===64 bit Troubleshooting===
 +
* If you get a problem with such as "libreadline.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.", it can be solved on 64 bit Debian Squeeze  by doing this:
 +
 
 +
apt-get install lib32readline5
  
In order to build the Multi Theft Auto dedicated server, you will have to set up your system with the correct libraries and tools. How these are installed depends on your distribution.
+
* If you get a problem with such as "libncursesw.so.5 cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory", it can be solved on 64 bit Debian Squeeze by doing this:
  
Our network module is distributed as a precompiled binary library. The latest version for GNU/Linux can be found on our Downloads page on GitHub.
+
apt-get install lib32ncursesw5
  
 +
* Further 64 bit solutions can be found [http://forum.mtasa.com/viewtopic.php?f=106&t=35328#p367282 on the forums]
  
 +
* If you are using Cent OS and you get something like /usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.9' not found (required by xmll.so) this can be resolved by doing downloading the archive [[http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pub/archive/fedora/linux/releases/9/Fedora/i386/os/Packages/libstdc++-4.3.0-8.i386.rpm here]] and unpacking it with the following command:

== Preparing your system ==
  
 +
In order to build the Multi Theft Auto dedicated server, you will have to set up your system with the correct libraries and tools. How these are installed depends on your distribution.
 +
 +
Our network module (net.dll or net.so) is distributed as a precompiled binary library. The file for GNU/Linux can be found inside the lastest Linux nightly from [http://nightly.mtasa.com/ here]. Use the net.so from {{Current Version|master}} if you are compiling from the trunk, or the net.so from {{Current Version|full}} if you are compiling the {{Current Version|full}} branch. Be sure the read the top of ''Server/version.h'' as it contains directions on how to compile the different build types.

Reason(s): Confirm steps work.

Installing and Running MTASA server on Linux

[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: This article is only for developers who changed the server code, if you are looking for the precompiled server (for normal server owners). Go to: linux.mtasa.com and see Installing and Running MTASA Server on GNU_Linux

Preparing your system

In order to build the Multi Theft Auto dedicated server, you will have to set up your system with the correct libraries and tools. How these are installed depends on your distribution.

Our network module (net.dll or net.so) is distributed as a precompiled binary library. The file for GNU/Linux can be found inside the lastest Linux nightly from here. Use the net.so from 1.5 if you are compiling from the trunk, or the net.so from 1.5.6 if you are compiling the 1.5.6 branch. Be sure the read the top of Server/version.h as it contains directions on how to compile the different build types.

Debian Linux

Includes derivative distributions such as Ubuntu.

You will need the necessary build tools, headers and libraries, which are distributed through the following Debian packages (e.g. Debian Lenny):

  • build-essential: contains the necessary tools, headers and libraries to build applications
  • automake: contains the automake tools
  • libtool: contains the libtool software required to build libraries
  • libreadline-gplv2-dev: contains the readline library (version 5)
  • libncurses5-dev: contains software for controlling writing to the console screen
  • libncursesw5-dev: contains support for wide characters
  • default-libmysqlclient-dev: contains the MySQL library
  • git: contains the git client used to check out our code repository

To install these packages through apt, use the apt-get install <package list> command as in the following example (execute as root):

apt-get install build-essential automake libtool
apt-get install libreadline-gplv2-dev libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev
apt-get install default-libmysqlclient-dev git 

Note: On Debian 8 systems please use this: apt-get install build-essential automake libtool libreadline-gplv2-dev libncurses5-dev libncursesw5-dev libmysqlclient-dev git

Gentoo Linux

You will need the necessary build tools, headers and libraries. Because Gentoo’s portage system is designed to compile any packages on your own system, the necessary build tools will have already been installed. This only leaves you to install the necessary libraries:

  • git: contains the git client used to check out our code repository

To compile and install these packages through emerge, use the emerge -v <package list> command. The -v option shows additional * * information and can be omitted. (If you want to use any USE flags, prepend emerge with USE="use flags here". You can also use the -pv option to verify that you’re using the correct flags.) Refer to the Gentoo Handbook or manual for more information on emerge.

Example:

emerge -v git sqlite
USE=“net-misc/curl ssl” emerge -v curl

Fedora

You will need these packages to be able to successfully compile a MTA server on Fedora:

  • glibc-devel:
  • readline-devel: contains the readline library
  • git: contains the git client to check out the source code

To install these packages through yum, use the yum install <package list> command as in the following example (execute as root):

yum install glibc-devel readline-devel git

General instructions for 1.5

Downloading the source.

First you need to download the source. Either clone as show below or download a zip snapshot

git clone https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-blue.git mtasa-blue
cd mtasa-blue

Then compile it thus:

./linux-build.sh

Then copy the configuration files, network module and resources into Bin/server by running this command:

./linux-install-data.sh

And the resources and stuff should be downloaded and stuff. As well as the net_d.dll file.

Troubleshooting

If you’re getting any unexpected errors while compiling, please check our Bug tracker or our IRC channel
